Ontario Parents Advocating for Children with Cancer (OPACC), a registered charity that has been supporting families of children with cancer throughout Ontario since 1995, is running a virtual holiday market to support childhood cancer families.
Buyers can support the charity by shopping at the virtual holiday market from a variety of vendors throughout Ontario that have pledged to donate part of their sales to OPACC. Buyers can feel good knowing that part of their purchases are going to support charitable programs and services for childhood cancer families in Ontario.
OPACC is also looking to add more vendors, who will receive promotion for their businesses and a charitable tax receipt for their donations. Vendors include home-based businesses, artisans, and independent consultants in addition to traditional storefront businesses. The market runs until mid-December (each vendor has a different end date). Vendors can register at the event webpage.
All proceeds go towards supporting the charity’s free programs and services for childhood cancer families in Ontario, including in-hospital support through its Parent Liaison program, community-based childhood cancer parent support groups throughout Ontario, hospital parking reimbursements, distribution of gift cards for gas and food, and advocacy on issues of importance to childhood cancer families.
