Welcome to the month of April!

By the time you are reading this, you will be deep into it. That means I can’t play any April Fool jokes on you. I love playing a good April Fool's joke. A few years ago, I remember dating website had made an announcement that they were helping find love matches for dogs just to later announce it was a prank. My pup was devastated at the thought of having to meet his love the old fashioned way.

Another BIG day in April this year is the" Virtual For The Kids Gala" . We are SO HONOURED to sponsor the Gala which features a virtual talent that showcases the amazing abilities and unique skills of some of the incredible children and youth who are supported by Development and Rehabilitation at CHEO.

Both days I mention above are for sure conversation starters, one full of funny stories, the other may bring the feeling of warmth and community. Since we are so excited for the Gala, let's forget about April Fool's and get right into the good stuff!

CHEO VIRTUAL GALA

Be inspired by kids who are thriving with help from CHEO’s Development and Rehabilitation teams, and celebrate their unique skills and talents in a virtual “homegrown talent” show, including a special musical performance by some of the kids in CHEO’s Recreational Therapy program.

Witness first-hand the newly developed skills and abilities that the kids are achieving in the Milestone Moments presented throughout the virtual programming.

LEARN FROM CHEO STAFF AND FAMILIES

Discover some of the equipment that is used in many of the Development and Rehabilitation programs in the Tech Talk segments.

Hear from CHEO staff and families, including the Parents’ Perspective segments as they share their stories and experiences, and how they have adapted to life during the pandemic.

This year, we are on a mission to raise $50,000 for the CHEO Foundation. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell.

So, when you or anyone you know buys or sells the place they call home with us, we deliver on our exclusive guarantees and award-winning service AND a very worthy cause benefits as well.

The reason for the headline is because 30 seconds is about all it takes to think about who you know that may be considering buying or selling the place they call home and to give us a call. If it is you, then awesome! If it’s a friend or family member, that’s great too!

I’ve added the photo again of myself along with a couple members of our team proudly holding up a check for $25,000, payable to CHEO. Our Goal last year was $25,000. Mission accomplished! With the help of our clients, I’m confident we’ll make our big goal of $50,000 this year.

The CHEO Foundation supports and helps the hospital provide a wide variety of pediatric programs, research, state-of the art equipment, medical and nursing education, and assistance for families in crisis. To this day, the initial goal is to have a special place that provides specialized care for children and youth. This remains a top priority for the families in eastern Ontario, western Quebec and beyond.

WHY I GIVE TO CHEO

Born, raised and growing up here in Ottawa, I have seen many things change. Many schools, residential and commercial areas are developing at a rapid pace; however, there has always and will always be a continuous need of support towards our hospitals.

There are however some in our community that for reasons beyond we can fully understand are experiencing real hardship. Circumstances involving vulnerable children who face sickness, disability, and illness who rely heavily on multiple health providers, hospitals, and equipment required at home and school environments. Thank goodness for the CHEO Foundation. Their mission is to further the physical, mental and social well-being of children and their families in eastern Ontario and western Quebec by raising, managing and dispersing funds.I have had the privilege of taking a tour and meeting sick and disabled children who need our help. It is for that reason, FEELY GROUP is a proud sponsor of the CHEO FOUNDATION and on a mission to raise $50,000 for CHEO.

CHEO touches the lives of over 500,000 patients and families each year. Funds raised by the CHEO Foundation supply extras that help the doctors, nurses, and staff provide the excellence in health care that our children and youth so richly deserve. What an amazing way for us to give back to the community.
