Welcome to the Pay it Forward Program Page!
Atlantic photo Supply has supported many charities through many community events over the years. However, we felt it time to wrap our programs into a single entity recognizable as “what we do”. We also thought it important to highlight on one charity where we feel we can make the most difference.
The Children's Wish Foundation is a uniquely Canadian charity that helps Canadian children, families and communities by granting the favourite wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. With every wish that they grant, they create moments of joy that ease the pain of a child, give respite to the child's family, and connect healthcare professionals and communities in that burning wish of hope.
We have sponsored their princess tea parties for a number of years and have truly began to appreciate how big an impact their efforts make on sick children. Also how little administrative costs go against the monies donated. The organization is very efficient and therefore more money goes directly to the cause.
It is simple. We want to raise enough money to grant a wish. The average wish costs $10,000. We intend to create a number of campaigns to achieve this goal. They will range from donating a portion of client purchases on certain products to event where we ask for donations. We will also collect donations in store and online as well.
This a picture of our GM, Allen left with the first wish we participated in. Bryan’s wish was to go to a Formula 1 race. Childrens wish was able to grant Bryan his wish and off he went to Montreal this Spring!
Our first event will be called “Wish Upon A Star” We invite people to join the Nova East Star party at Smileys Provincial Camp ground in Hants county. The date is August 23, and you should be there around 8:00pm. There where will be a night sky viewing with Telescopes of shapes and sizes. We are asking people to make a donation when they participate in the event. Everyone is welcome.
