Giving The Gift!!

Maybe you haven’t started thinking about holiday gifts, but these two pups have!

 

This holiday season, why not think about giving the gift of Head & Hands?

That’s right, our Give The Gift campaign is officially back! If you know someone who loves Head & Hands, or someone who would love Head & Hands if they knew a little more about us, this makes the perfect present! Instead of hours in a store looking for something “just right”, Giving The Gift shows you care about your loved ones, but also about your community’s youth! This year, we have a special card hand drawn and designed by youth artist Dillon, featuring a very festive wintry scene!

How does it work?

This year is a little different than usual: now, when you make a donation in honour of a loved one or friend, we mail them a card with a handwritten note straight from us, letting them know about the impact your gift had.

What kind of impact exactly? Well, here’s an idea of what a donation can do…

$15 provides 2 days of healthy food to a young family

$25 funds one counselling session with Rhonda

$50 covers the cost of 5 after-school tutoring sessions

$75 gives one sexual health workshop to a classroom full of youth

$250 puts our Street Workers in the community for 15 hours of outreach

$500 takes care of the bill for one week of our free medical clinic

No matter who is on the receiving end, there is nothing more satisfying than the goodness that comes from a donation being made in one’s honour! Ready to go? You can donate online here.
