When you hear the term ‘superhero,’ you probably have a favourite story or movie character that comes to mind. Maybe it’s Superman or Wonder Woman. Someone who has special powers for fighting evil like superhuman strength or speed, x-ray vision, or the ability to fly or cast a web in pursuit of a villain.
At I Can for Kids, we’re surrounded by superheroes every day. They don’t chase villains, but their powers are special, their mission is clear, and their impact is beyond measure. Who are these inspirational characters? They’re our generous donors and sponsors, our dedicated frontline agency and community partners, and over 400 amazing volunteers. They are you.
Armed with your compassion and belief in giving every child the opportunity to reach their potential, you are part of our loyal league of superheroes who have joined us in our pursuit to end summer childhood hunger in Calgary.
Although we didn’t leap tall buildings in a single bound, our achievements and our impact this summer was far greater than we ever expected. We’re excited to share our results with you in the 2018 Impact Report. With your support, we provided over 64,000 meals to hungry kids throughout the city this year – a remarkable 67% increase from 2017. There’s much more to share. Please enjoy reviewing the report and learning more about how your special powers helped make a difference in lives of thousands of hungry kids this summer.
There are superheroes around every corner. We’re mighty proud to have you in ours. Thank you!
