My dad loved life, my dad loved family, and my dad loved kids. He taught me, for all those I love, to do the best I can! For a number of years I’ve anonymously held a Secret Santa event where we close down Toys"R"Us stores for hundreds of seriously ill children as well as underprivileged children, to have free rein in a toy store to choose whatever they want.

Now it’s your turn to join me as I spread the love across the country.


Starlight Children’s Foundation® Canada does what no medicine can do: create priceless smiles and memories for seriously ill children and their families. For over 30 years, Starlight Canada has been spreading joy to sick kids across the country through a unique blend of hospital to home programs designed for the whole family. With your help, together we can create more magic in-hospital, grant more wishes out-of-hospital and spread more sparkles across Canada!
