WINNERS & HomeSense Spread a Little Sunshine and Make Dreams Come True for Canadian Children

LONDON, ON – From Monday, August 1st to August 31st, WINNERS and HomeSense stores across Canada will invite their customers to help Spread a Little Sunshine during a month-long campaign in support of The Sunshine Foundation of Canada. By purchasing a $2, $5, or $10 decal at their local WINNERS or HomeSense store, customers will help make dreams come true for children across Canada living with severe physical disabilities or life-threatening illnesses. One hundred percent of the proceeds from decal sales collected in-store during the Spread a Little Sunshine campaign will be donated to Sunshine to support Sunshine Dreams.

“Since 1999, thanks to the overwhelming generosity of our customers, we have had the privilege to help make dreams come true for children across Canada,”  said Erin O’Brien, spokesperson for WINNERS & HomeSense.  “We are honoured to partner once again this year with The Sunshine Foundation to continue to help raise awareness and funds to support such a wonderful cause.”

 “We are extremely grateful to WINNERS and HomeSense for their dedication to Sunshine and the children we are privileged to serve,” says Nancy Sutherland, CEO of The Sunshine Foundation of Canada. “A national partner with Sunshine since 1999, the associates and customers of WINNERS and HomeSense have raised over $8.6 million dollars to help fulfill the most cherished dreams of Sunshine Kids across Canada. Funds raised through in-store decal sales, associate fundraising activities and corporate contributions help build confidence, ignite hope and create new possibilities for children living with complex medical conditions. On behalf of Sunshine Kids from coast to coast, I offer a sincere and heartfelt thank you to our partners WINNERS and HomeSense.”

Special events will be taking place at WINNERS and HomeSense stores across the country throughout the length of the campaign including visits from Sunshine’s mascot, Sunshine Bear, as well as special in-store Sunshine Dream presentations where store associates will present young dreamers with their dream come true.
