I’m fundraising for the Courage Fund at St.Michael's Hospital to support our most vulnerable communities and our frontline staff.
It's a cause that's close to me. In my communications role at St. Michael's Hospital Foundation, I've heard incredibly inspiring stories about, and witnessed firsthand the relentless dedication of our health-care teams as they stop at nothing to tackle whatever medical challenge they are faced with, and uncompromisingly deliver compassionate care to everyone who comes through their doors. And if you are familiar with the downtown Toronto core, that is a very diversely advantaged population. So just imagine the challenges that COVID-19 is presenting now. Yet that courageous spirit has never wavered as they prepare to face it head on.
Now, there is an urgent need for what most of us take for granted. For our most vulnerable community members, many of whom are experiencing homelessness – and for those whose lives have been turned upside down because of layoffs – it’s food vouchers, essential medicines, clothing, toiletries, and phones and data plans, because connection to community and health-care supports is especially crucial at this time.
For St. Michael’s frontline staff who are working around the clock to care for our patients, it’s critical medical supplies and equipment to ensure they can deliver health-care safely and effectively to everyone who needs it.
All gifts will be matched by a generous donation of $3,000,000. Any amount helps. Please join me and make a gift to St. Michael’s Hospital.
The Courage Fund supports St. Michael’s Hospital’s highest-priority needs.
