Aaron Moser Spinal Cord Foundation
The Aaron Moser Spinal Cord Foundation was founded in December 1998 after Edmonton junior hockey player Aaron Moser broke his neck during a game, leaving him quadriplegic. The community banded together to immediately assist Aaron and his family, raising funds to secure the equipment, home renovations, and the ongoing treatment and rehabilitation Aaron needed.
The Foundation continues to raise awareness about spinal cord injuries and through continued fundraising efforts such as the Annual Aaron Moser Spinal Cord Foundation Golf Tournament seek to make a difference in the lives of people affected by spinal cord injuries and find a cure for paralysis. To date the Foundation has raised almost half a million dollars supporting spinal cord injury research.
Habitat for Humanity
Habitat for Humanity's mission is to ensure everyone everywhere has a safe and decent place to live. A national non-profit organization, Habitat for Humanity organizes and motivates volunteers and community partners to build affordable housing, promote home ownership and break the cycle of poverty. By providing support to families in need by giving them access to affordable housing, individuals are able to pull themselves out of poverty and build equity for their future.
More than 50,000 people have volunteered and built homes with Habitat in Humanity across Canada, with thousands more contributing to the international Global Village program. Without constant hands-on support by volunteers of all backgrounds -- including both professional tradespeople and those who have never before picked up a hammer -- the Habitat for Humanity program would not be a success. Donations of time and hands-on effort are just as critical to a project's success as dollars.
A reputable, and charitable organization, focused on creating national education on the prevention of child sexual abuse. In addition to providing awareness, Little Warriors also takes action by providing support information, resources, and treatment of child sexual abuse. Through their awareness, preventative measures, and treatment, they empower victims, and help families heal. Currently, their vision is to build the Little Warriors Be Brave Ranch, a treatment centre for children - this would be the first of it’s kind.
