Dear Friend, As soon as I read this quote from Lewis Carroll I immediately thought of all our thoughtful and compassionate donors.

Dear Friend, Sweet, sweet summer. As Canadians, we look forward to it all year long. After all, summer is a time for cottage weekends, picnics, and long, leisurely road trips – a time to enjoy life and create the memories we’ll remember tomorrow. That was Bradley Lentz’s plan when he and his wife, Nancy, joined [...]

How you can help honour victims and survivors!

2017/11/08|Categories: Campaigns|

Dear Friend, It's the holiday season and all across Canada people are celebrating. But in some homes there is only darkness. No lights sparkle from the eaves, no gifts wait to be opened. The families inside don't feel much like celebrating. The tragedy of impaired driving has left its mark forever on their shattered hearts. [...]

Dear Friend, A pact is a powerful thing. It can change and sometimes even save lives. Today I hope you'll enter into a potentially lifesaving pact with MADD Canada. In this pact we'll agree to help each other in the fight against impaired driving and be there for the victims and survivors. Survivors like Maia Vezina [...]

And then, in a heartbeat, everything changed!

Dear Friend, It was a beautiful summer day, but Antonette Wijeratne lay crying in a hospital bed. Her hip, pelvis and some ribs had been fractured; the toes on her right foot dislocated; she had a brain injury as well - she had injuries all over her body. But it wasn't her broken body causing [...]
