The gift of giving

Time

Sometimes you have little resources but a big heart. Your time is just as valuable as any other type of donation and you will feel satisfied for helping people in need directly.

Organizations to consider
  • Children’s Wish Foundation: The Children’s Wish Foundation is aptly named since it is responsible for granting the biggest wish of children that live with an illness. Giving your time means playing an important role in creating their dreams. Money donations are also accepted.
  • The Pignon Bleu: The Pignon Bleu’s mission is to provide food aid to poor neighborhoods around the city of Quebec and to conduct socio-economical activities and contribute to the training and social and professional integration of people excluded from the work force. Money donations are also accepted.
