Schools and Youth
You’re never too young to make a difference. Come to think of it, we often see that it’s some of the smallest supporters who have the biggest hearts—not to mention some pretty impressive ingenuity. Over the years, countless kids have inspired us with their compassion and creativity in helping other kids in need. They’ve hosted pajama days, shaved their heads, cut their hair and done a whole lot more. And because their imaginations and hearts have no limits, neither do ours when it comes to enhancing children’s health care.
There are a number of ways that kids and teens can support our work.

Plan your own event
Bake sales. Bottle drives. Pajama days. Movie nights. Those are just a few ways that kids have raised money for our hospital. We can’t wait to see what you come up with. Get started now
Use your special day to change lives by asking for donations in support of our province’s sickest kids. Kids who are under 12 will earn a membership to the Sunny Bear Birthday Club. Learn more
Wigs for Kids BC
Please note: Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we are unable to accept hair donations at this time. We kindly ask you to hold on to your hair donation, or delay your hair cut, until further notice.
Please contact us for information on how to submit donations you have collected, or if you’d like to be notified when our office has re-opened and is able to accept hair donations.
You can still support this program by making an online donation, or creating a personal fundraising page in support of Wigs for Kids BC. Funds raised will continue to support the cost of providing wigs for kids in BC suffering from hair loss due to their illness as well as supporting families with medication and feeding supplies not covered by MSP. Now, more than ever, this is so important due to the uncertain financial situation many families are facing. Thank you for your support.
Balding for Dollars
Join an existing event, or start your own to help improve the lives of kids with cancer. Don’t worry: you don’t have to shave your head to make a difference—but you are, of course, welcome to. Register to fundraise
Chinese Young Ambassador Program
Our Young Ambassadors are youth between the ages of 8-21 who fundraise within the Chinese community. Through various fundraising and leadership development opportunities, members have learned important life lessons while participating in community initiatives that help to sharpen their communication, team-building and project management skills.
