Kids helping kids

Hope Bear joined the Anglican Foundation in 2011 as a tangible reminder that the Anglican Church cares for kids in Canada by establishing a Kids Helping Kids Fund.

Hope Bear was chosen as the mascot. A variety of Hoe Bear styles are available.

With a $20 donation, you can have your own AFC Hope Bear – a great gift for a special celebration – with all funds going to support:

  • providing kids a nutritious breakfast before school
  • helping kids with homework after school
  • caring for kids with a terminal diagnosis
  • giving kids a chance to go to summer camp or choir school.

Children and youth can support the Foundation by becoming Toonie Members. Children are invited to collect toonies during a special church season. Colourful coin boxes are available for this purpose.

This is a great project for kids in a parish – it’s fun, it teaches children the importance of generosity, and the impact makes a huge difference for kids in Canada. All the funds collected are placed in the Kids Helping Kids Fund.

Since its inception, the Kids Helping Kids Fund has given over $70,000 to support programs that benefit kids in Canada!
