What we do and WHY…
More than half of our funds come from corporate sponsorships and grants. We are continually grateful for individual donors and third-party fundraisers too. We feel the love Saskatchewan!
I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it hadn’t been for the support of Creative Kids. Today, I am happy, successful and so proud of where dancing has taken me. I have received awards and achievements, completed goals, travelled all over the world, met incredible people and graduated college.
When I received the support from Creative Kids to take dance lessons when I was ten, it really set me on a path for success that gave me the opportunity to learn new skills and to gain the confidence I was lacking at the time.
“We’re really appreciative of the help of Creative Kids. I know because of my situation that it’s impossible for me to cover the costs of these activities. Creative Kids has helped a lot for my children – especially for Didi, as I can see she has many talents.”
“Thank you doesn’t seem to cover how I feel knowing that my son can participate in this theatre class. I never thought there would be a time that I couldn’t afford something for my son, and my self-esteem and pride were knocked down. Your assistance has put a smile on my face again because I was able to put a smile on my son’s face. This has helped more that you know.”
“The best part is when a kid finishes a project, they always want to give it away. They say ‘I want to give this to my mum, aunt or kokum or whoever it is.’ When they get that moment to give their hard work, it’s really exciting.”
The funding Ann has received has had an enormous impact on her life. I have seen a huge change in her and how she sees herself. I no longer hear comments from her about how ‘dumb’ she is, but I do hear comments about how she has learned to play a difficult piece, or how some of her friends want her to teach them how to play. I believe taking piano lessons is the reason her confidence has continually grown this year…I want to thank you for the funding Ann received last year and for considering her application this year.”
“I have watched the Art School transform the lives of the students who get funding through Creative Kids. They’ve learned skills that have allowed them to grow in their confidence and truly start to blossom.”
“I am grateful to Creative Kids, my parents and my sister for supporting my dreams. Dancing makes me feel happy. It helps me express my feelings without words.”
