Raising Money for Kids Help Phone and Toys for Local Charities - Alan Farber

Posted by Andre Mazerolle on Thu, Dec 01, 2016 @ 01:49 PM

We need your help.

With your donation of $50, $100 or $200 to Kids Help Phone, Mattel will donate toys to five of our favourite local charities.


Make a Difference. Donate Today.

Here is how Farber's Drive to Thrive campaign makes a difference:

  • $50 supports the Kids Help Phone Mobile App called Always There. Kids can download the app and find information they need in less than 5 minutes!

  • $100 will connect a child directly to a caring professional counsellor by phone. The average length of a call is 15 minutes.

  • $200 gives a young person in crisis professional counselling and referrals to local support. A call could be 1-2 hours.

Farber Financial Group is committed to putting people first and making a difference by contributing to the well-being of our communities. Help us reach our goals by donating today.

About Our Charities
This year, we wanted to reach charities in more communities that we serve. Farber has been working with Kids Help Phone for four years and we are delighted to help such a worthwhile cause.

The toys will be divided into groups to go to five charities across Ontario:

About Mattel Canada
We would like to thank Mattel Canada for their generous matching contribution of toys. The Mattel tower of toys contains items for youth up to 12 years of age. The Mattel family of companies (Nasdaq: MAT) is the worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of toys and family products.

About Kids Help Phone
Kids Help Phone is Canada’s leading youth professional counselling service. Any young person with access to a phone or computer can reach Kids Help Phone any hour of the day or night, from any community in Canada. 24/7/365
