The Checkup Summer 2019 Summer 2019 Newsletter - Page 2

Young Philanthropists in Action Spring is here and young philanthropists are busy in the community raising funds for the Health Foundation! We have received many requests for the Foundation’s lemonade stand which is just the perfect size for your little ones to set up in front of your house or at a local park. Recently Halle, Aislyn and Livia knocked it out of the park by raising $133 selling lovely pink lemonade! Call (780) 791-6207 to book the lemonade stand and have a weekend of fundraising with your children! In this issue of The Checkup we are featuring the fundraising efforts of Dylan and Joey Osmond who raised a whopping $3,890 for local healthcare. Joey was at school putting paper into a tissue box as part of a project he was working on. It suddenly struck him that he could do something for sick people if he asked people to put cash into the tissue box. From this small gem of an idea came ‘Kash for Kids’, an Osmond family venture to raise funds to support pediatric healthcare programs, projects, and equipment at the Northern Lights Regional Health Centre. To kick-off the fundraising, the boys did a social media post announcing a 50/50 draw. This raised attention and $1,300! The Osmonds worked with local businesses to secure draw prizes and were hosted by the Thickwood Barbershop to set up a table. This busy shop saw lots of action as the boys sold hundreds of $10 raffle tickets over two days. We would like to thank the Osmond family for all of their hard work – for seeing a fundraising opportunity and following through to make a big impact for sick kids in the region. Young philanthropists are making a HUGE difference in our community by stepping up and discovering the fun in giving to others. If your young leader has an idea they would like to pursue please call (780) 791-6207. 2 SUMMER 2019 | THE CHECKUP
