Giving Tuesday Peterborough


Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Foundation

On Tuesday November 29th, donate to help local children being assisted by the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society

At the start of our Giving Tuesday Campaign we would first like to thank the Peterborough, Kawartha, and Haliburton community for their overwhelming support to the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Foundation, a local registered charity since 1982. This year we are asking you to think about giving back to your community with a donation which will go towards Carolyn Mills' Sweet Dreams initiative.

The Sweet Dreams program provides comfortable pyjamas, sleepwear and pillows to the Kawartha Haliburton Children's Foundation so that they can be given to under privileged children in our community who are assisted by the Kawartha-Haliburton Children's Aid Society. Many of the children who arrive at a foster home sometimes don’t have pyjamas to wear that first night, and it’s a very crucial night. They are away from their families and away from their surroundings. Snuggling up in cozy new pyjamas and new bedding gives these children a secure and nurturing experience and the feeling of a warm hug at bedtime.

In addition we also supply pyjamas to families participating in the Family Preservation Program where services are delivered directly to those families assisted by the KHCAS in their homes and/or alternative care settings.

Did you know that a
  • $10 donation will allow you to give back to your community through the purchase one baby sleeper?
Or that a
  • $25 donation will warmly dress two children in a pair of pyjamas and baby sleeper?
Think of how far a
  • $50 donation would go towards buying one pair of pyjamas, a pillow and a blanket for an under-privileged child in our community.
Or double it to a
  • $100 donation which could provide pyjamas and bedding for two children within the same family.
Finally a generous
  • $250 donation would bring the comfort of warm pyjamas and bedding to five local children in need.

Once again, thank you for supporting local children, in our community!
