For every item sold, Babysaurus.ca will donate $5 to charity.

 

Here at Babysaurus.ca we love the notion of paying it forward, and are committed to helping as many local charities as we can. We will be featuring a different charity each month, to help bring awareness to their cause and raise some much needed funds. 

$5 from the sale of each and every item will go to the Charity of the Month. We hope that we can donate more than that, whatever our profits allow us to. But you can trust that we are fully committed to our pledge; that at least $5 will be donated. You'll note our prices are competitive; we will not be charging extra to cover this. You can enjoy shopping with us, at great prices, with the knowledge that your money is going on to help others.

Thank you for your support!

 

September's Charity: Childhood Cancer Canada

 

We are so happy to announce that our charity of the month for September is Childhood Cancer Canada, in honour of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Childhood Cancer Canada is an incredible organization. We and the pleasure of working with them when we did our DNA themed exclusive with Lenny Lamb, called My Favourite Genes. Part of their mission statement from their website:

"To create victories for Canadian children with cancer through investment in national, collaborative, lifesaving research, and empowering education and community programs."

Childhood Cancer Canada helps so many families each year, as they battle through their worst nightmare. I can think of nothing more difficult than watching my child suffer with any ill health - be it mental health or physical. Cancer is the worst kind illness; it strikes suddenly, sometimes with few symptoms, and in an instance your world comes crashing down. The road to recovery is often a hard one, where treatment can leave your child more and more exhausted. It's a struggle that only those that have personally experienced would be able to understand; and as such, it can be truly overwhelming. And that's where the support, understanding and encouragement from an organization like Childhood Cancer Canada is invaluable.

In addition to support, they fund research into finding a cure. To date, they have donated $5 million in critical targeted research to the C17 council; formed by Canada's top paediatric oncologists.

But they don't stop there. Because Childhood Cancer Canada is all about hope, and celebrating success, they have an excellent scholarship program for Childhood Cancer survivors. 

With all of that and more, it is easy to see why we are honoured to be able to support them in any capacity we can.
