Growing up, I was extremely fortunate to be involved in a variety of sports. Moreover, I was even luckier that my parents had the finances to support my involvement in sports. For that reason, I have always been impressed with the work that Canadian Tire does with their Jumpstart charities.
Sport empowers children and connects them with their peers and communities. Jumpstart provides low-income families with money to put towards enrolling children in sports and other activities that they might otherwise be unable to access.
You can help too!
Since its inception in 2005, Canadian Tire has helped 1,914,373 children (310,824 in 2018!).
Canadian Tire Corporation funds all of Jumpstart’s administrative expenses, allowing 100% of donations to go directly toward supporting kids in need.
You can make a secure online donation here. You can also donate to a fundraiser in your community, or even host a fundraiser, where you can encourage your friends and family to donate to your event and impact real change in your community.
