Our story…

We have changed the new fund raising goal to 11993! This was my wife Julie's paramedic number as she was a flight paramedic with Ornge London. Please donate to this amazing organization that has help us so much. Mike


Welcome to our Team Fundraising Page! We are committed to raise as much as possible for Lighthouse!  Help us reach $1000

Please consider making a pledge to our page to help The Lighthouse for Grieving Children, who are celebrating 20 years of vital services helping bereaved children and their families in Halton, Peel and in other areas of the GTA.  

Hear from Austen, Matthew and Tiffany about what Lighthouse means to them.

Did you know:

In 2017, 353 participants attended Lighthouse groups

It costs $1700 per participant to attend a support group at Lighthouse for one year

They are 95% self funded and rely on YOUR sponsorships and donations to ensure services remain free of charge

No other charity in Canada provides the same service of open-ended peer support for children ages 3-18 years old.
