In between birthday parties, special events at the library, play dates, daily swimming lessons, soccer practice for Max and gymnastics for Artemis, there was barely enough time for anything else. Just to clarify, no one is complaining. At all.
The Kids realize how fortunate they are to have the ability to participate in fee-based activities where they learn new skills and develop positive relationships with coaches and their teammates. They also realize that many of their peers aren’t so fortunate and they wish that there was something that they could do.
That’s where you, I and Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects come in.
For the past three years, I have been honoured to have the opportunity to share and support Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects and their Boston Pizza Kids Cards campaign and based on all your comments, you think it’s important as well.
Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects works with partner organizations to provide Canadian kids in need with role models and mentors. Each year, the organization provides more than 200,000 hours of guidance and inspiration with role models each year. To date, Canadians have raised more than $22 million for organizations that align with its purpose, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, JDRF, Kids Help Phone, Live Different and the Rick Hansen Foundation.
Boston Pizza Kids Card Campaign is Back!
From now until October 2, 2016, you can support kids in your community and across Canada. A minimum donation of $5 gets you five free Kids Meals valued at $35 and also translates to an hour with a role model for a kid in need. In addition, Boston Pizza is offering a sixth Kids Meal if you register your Kids Card with a My BP account. (available at BostonPizza.com or the Boston Pizza iPhone app).
Not only will your donation help a child in need in your community but your family will also reap the benefits of your generosity and I’m not just talking about the free meals. Telling Max and Artemis that they are making a difference in the lives of others is priceless.
