Tix for Kids
If you have tickets to an event you can’t use, give them to kids who can!
Kids Up Front works with child and family serving agencies to give donated tickets to children, youth and families who face financial, social and/or ethnic barriers and other challenging circumstances.
Your unused tickets will create special life – changing opportunities for these children and families, giving them a place to bond and have fun! Through the Tix for Kids program, we have seen children build confidence and self-esteem, family relationships strengthen as well as new immigrants integrating, feeling welcome and excited to participate in Canadian culture and society.
It might not seem like much, but that ticket could give a child, in difficult circumstances, a break from the day to day challenges they might face. It provides an exciting and memorable experience and the chance to just be a kid!
"The kids feel: 'I do fit here, I’m part of society, I’m part of community.' They have something to talk about with peers when they come back from the weekend. It’s about normalizing things for kids."– Agency Representative
