Imagine being 10 years old and having to spend Christmas in the hospital because you’ve been diagnosed with a terminal illness.
For most of us, this is something we’ve never had to face, and it’s terrifying to even think about being in that situation.
I can barely begin to comprehend what it would be like, but I know I’d need companionship and comfort to be able to get through it.
That’s why I’m proud to work for a company that puts its support behind a cause like The Hospital for Sick Children by holding our annual SickKids Toy Drive.
It’s heart-warming to know we’re helping to ensure that every child at SickKids can have toys to play with on Christmas day, providing that little bit of extra comfort that they need.
Check out the message from our CEO below and keep reading for more information on the event.
The Best Media’s Second Annual SickKids Toy Drive
Last year, we were astounded by the generosity of those who attended and helped us to donate nearly $10,000 in toys, books and games.
Thanks to our clients and those who attend this event, we can look forward to continuing to give back to our community more and more every year.
Have a look at the video below to watch us purchase the toys for last year’s toy drive.
This year, we’re eager to make the event bigger and better and hopefully make last year’s donation look like chump change.
But we can’t do it without you.
So, if you want to get involved and help make Christmas that much better for a child in need, we hope to see you at our Second Annual SickKids Toy Drive!
Click here to RSVP and book your tickets to this event now.
