Because You Bought a Smile Cookie…

An incredible number of Smile Cookies were baked with love, decorated and enjoyed this September, resulting in $235,019 raised for the Child Life Program at Children’s Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre.

Your delicious support is helping paediatric patients, their siblings and parents to effectively cope with illness, injury and hospitalization. Child Life nurtures the spirit by helping our region’s kids to play, laugh and enjoy some of the most meaningful aspects of childhood even if they can’t leave their hospital beds. Whether it is helping kids to understand a procedure before it happens or providing opportunities to participate in childhood activities, such as playing with toys, the Child Life Program is making a difference for thousands of children in our community!

To date, Smile Cookie Week has raised over $2 million for Children’s Health Foundation! Thank you to Tim Hortons, its franchise owners and customers for supporting important, value-added programs that make a world of difference to our patients and their families, one smile at a time!
