Help create a world of possibility for kids with disabilities while celebrating with friends and family. Consider making a donation or asking friends and family to donate to Holland Bloorview in lieu of gifts for any special occasion

If you have questions on hosting special occasions, contact Shelby Foster at 416-564-8817 or [email protected]


Instead of presents, consider asking for donations to help kids and families pursue a healthy and happy future. Or, host an Echoage partywhere rather than bringing presents to your party, guests are invited to make an online financial gift through ECHOage. A portion of the money will go to Holland Bloorview Foundation to help kids with disabilities, and the rest is given to the birthday child to buy their dream present. The charitable portion of your gift will receive a tax receipt.
