Awareness. Advocacy. Support.
As part of our commitment to “take care of our world”, and particularly giving back to our community, we wanted to find a way to make a difference. While we have been involved with the Children’s Miracle Network and Realtor’s Community Foundation of Edmonton for years and adore both groups, we realized that we needed to broaden the scope and that there were too many incredible groups in our city to narrow our support to just one or two. Thus, the #charityspotlight was born – a program that works with a local charities for a 3 month period, raising awareness about their programs/services and the people that they help.
We are believers in being blessed to be a blessing and our goal is to connect more people in our city to causes and charities that they may not have known about. We want to encourage Edmontonians to get even more involved in making a difference and to help them find organizations to volunteer with or donate to that fit with their passions.
“If you want to change the world, start at home”

Adopt a Teen
Adopt-A-Teen, sponsored by The Edmonton Sun, is a Christmas gift program administered by the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton that provides a $50 Walmart gift card for Edmonton teens aged 13 to 17 years.
It’s simple: make sure every Edmonton teen enjoys a gift at Christmas. Since 1999, Adopt a Teen has delivered holiday cheer to Edmonton teens.
With help of the community, we can raise $400,000 to help teens this Christmas!
