These are extraordinary times. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, Canada’s health-care teams are being called upon like never before.
In support of all those on the front lines at St. Michael's Hospital, I'm so proud to join fellow team members at the Hospital's Foundation to raise funds for our newly launched Courage Fund. We are reaching out to our own networks to expand our reach and maximize the impact of this amazing initiative.
The Courage Fund will help those who need it most right now — marginalized community members, palliative patients and St. Mike’s staff. There is an urgent need for what so many of us take for granted.
For our most vulnerable, it’s food vouchers, clothes, toiletries and phones because connection is not an option. For palliative care patients, it’s tablets to speak with loved ones who can no longer stay by their side. And for St. Michael’s frontline staff who are working around the clock to care for our patients, it’s food and other essentials to keep them going.
This Fund will provide the flexible funding needed to provide comfort to those in need, with all gifts being matched up to $3,000,000!
I hope you will join us! Every dollar truly counts and is so deeply appreciated.
Thank you!!! And don't forget to stay home and wash your hands :)
