Log A Load For Kids Canada is a national giving campaign through which loggers and other forest industry people donate the value of a load of logs, or any amount raised through fundraising events, to local Children’s Miracle Network (CMN)-affiliated hospital foundations. One hundred percent of all contributions go to local CMN Canada hospital foundations; overhead expenses are contributed separately by sponsoring associations, the Children’s Miracle Network, and corporate and private underwriting.
Since its inception in September 2000, Log-A-Load for Kids Canada has raised over $1.5 million for various children’s hospitals across Canada. None of that would have been possible without the dedicated work of many, many volunteers who have donated time and effort to organized large and small fund-raising events. All of these efforts put together make for a very successful program.
Children’s hospital foundations affiliated with Children’s Miracle Network are committed to improving the lives of local children. Funds raised by way of Log-A-Load For Kids Canada will be used to purchase life-saving equipment in addition to support breakthrough medical research and other services that do not qualify for Provincial Ministry assistance.
