Volunteering is a great way to help those with cancer keep up the fight, to promote prevention, and to become active in the community yourself. From a few hours a month, to a few hours a day, volunteering is flexible, fun, a great way to meet new people and make a difference in your community!

Care Packages and Letters of Hope
Care Packages are simply gifts that can range from something as simple as a book, or crayons, to a collection of artwork, bubbles, stuffed animals, small toys, books, magazines, arts and crafts supplies, and just about anything kids enjoy playing with. These can be dropped off at just about any Children’s Hospital and are a great way to put smiles back where they belong. Don’t forget about the parents!
Letters of Hope are also simple little letters and/or drawings that can put a smile on someones face and let them know that things will get better. Acceptance of these varies between hospitals, so contact your local foundation before dropping these off. Nonetheless, these are a simple and easy way to help those keep up their fight.
Organise Your Own Fundraisers
Of course, you can always organise your very own fundraiser! This is a great way for youth (and adults) to get experience in management, marketing, and planning. From car washes, to ice skating marathons, to the world’s longest hockey game; fundraisers can be as simple or as complex as you desire. Use your imagination, and have fun!
