Canada Post Community Foundation Helps Change Lives

In partnership with the Canada Post Community Foundation, The Sunshine Foundation of Canada is excited to announce our selection as a 2021 Signature Grant recipient! Sunshine will be receiving a $50,000 donation from the Canada Post Community Foundation to support the Sunshine Dreams program and fulfill dreams for kids across Canada in 2022.

The Canada Post Community Foundation’s vision is to help ensure every child in Canada is happy, healthy, and part of a community that supports and cares for them. Its mission is to have a positive effect on the lives of children in the communities Canada Post serves by supporting registered charities, school programs, or local initiatives that benefit children. Each year, the foundation awards up to three Signature Grants of $50,000 each that support the overall work and mission of national organizations delivering programs or support for children and youth.

Although pandemic restrictions are beginning to ease, the health and safety of Sunshine’s staff, supporters, and the kids and families we serve remain our top priority. As a result, we are continuing to fulfill customized Sunshine Dreams such as (but certainly not limited to) adapted bikes, bedroom makeovers, virtual meet and greets, animation equipment, gaming systems, exercise equipment and so much more!

These Sunshine Dream experiences provide opportunities for kids to build confidence and independence, pursue their hobbies and passions, work toward career goals, and boost their mental health. In today’s current circumstances, a dream fulfilled can also give a young person, and their family, the positive boost required to persevere and push through difficult times.

Thank you to the Canada Post Community Foundation for believing in the power of dreams and for helping change the lives of kids across the country!
