Help John Howard KidStart on Giving Tuesday

John Howard KidStart needs your help this Giving Tuesday, Dec. 3. There are currently 50 local children on the waitlist for the mentoring program, and your donation can help us match more kids in need with a volunteer mentor. Black Friday and Cyber Monday are two days where the focus is on getting great deals. Giving Tuesday is a day devoted to giving back. Help kids in the Comox Valley by giving to John Howard KidStart.

John Howard KidStart is a volunteer-based mentoring program that connects positive adult role models with children ages six to 18 for three hours of recreational or cultural activities per week. John Howard KidStart depends entirely on donations, grants, fundraising and gaming funds to help children and youth in the community. Please give what you can to help KidStart make a difference.

Donations can be made online at www.jhsni.bc.ca or in person or by mail to: The John Howard Society of North Island, 1455 Cliffe Ave., Courtenay, B.C., V9N 2K6. Donations over $10 are eligible for a tax receipt. As well, KidStart donation tins will be out at COBS Bread in the Driftwood Mall, Mudsharks Coffee Bar, Parker Appliances, and Trail Bicycles on Giving Tuesday.

On that day, COBS Bread will donate $1 to KidStart for every six-pack of mini cinnamon buns or eight-pack of mini danishes purchased, and five per cent of any purchase will go to KidStart.

Feel great by helping local kids this holiday season. Thank you from John Howard KidStart.
