Child hunger is Canada’s greatest crisis and the faces of child poverty are diverse. Through the Vancouver Sun Kids’ Fund, I’ve adopted an entire school in Nanaimo that is now able to provide meals to 52 children who come to school hungry, as well as grocery cards for them to use over the weekends.

Vancouver Humane Society (McVitie Fund)
My love for animals is immeasurable. By supporting the Vancouver Humane Society’s McVitie Fund, the charity is able to pay for medical bills for dogs and cats who have no financial support.
Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS)
The Performing Animal Welfare Society is dedicated to saving and protecting wildlife animals who have spent their lives confined in zoos or performing in circuses. These animals have been abused, abandoned, and/or retired. PAWS provides them a natural habitat in the forests near Sacramento, California, and everything they need to live their best lives.
