The OHF Crew Back At The Calgary Zoo!
The OHF Proudly Supports Amnesty International!
The OHF is helping to free Magai Matiop Ngong in South Sudan. Dr. Hart got on a train in London England this past week unsure which project to support this year via their Amnesty International Partnership. In a tattered old newspaper she read Magai’s sad story – decision sealed.
To help please donate to: https://amnesty.ca
Magai Matiop Ngong was just fifteen when he was sentenced to death in South Sudan. Tell the government to commute his sentence and stop using the death penalty against children. … He was in secondary school and had ambitions to help people when he grew up. Now, Magai lives in prison …
The OHF Proudly Supports The Calgary Zoo Conservation Program!
Dr. Martha Hart and OHF committee member Virginia Xavier really enjoyed the ZOOLIGHTS donor appreciation event last night and the insightful and informative talk given at this wonderful private function by Calgary Zoo President & CEO Dr. Clement Lanthier. The pair happily hung out with the zoo crew and loved walking around our spectacular zoo with its incredible display of Xmas lights, festive music,warm open fires, great hot chocolate, and souvenir shops, all set in a terrific family friendly environment. Be sure to go check it out – so beautiful. The Calgary Zoo is also a valued OHF Online Auction Sponsor. Friends helping friends – what could be better.
A Big Thank You to Our OHF Sponsor Trapped Escape Room Experience!
Our OHF sponsor Darcy Anderson of Trapped Escape Room Experience is very generously donating thousands of dollars to help build a much-needed playground for the Cambodian school children supported by FTLOCS and the OHF. Until now these wonderful but disadvantaged children in need did not have a single toy to play with. If you would like to donate to one of our many great causes – please contact us at www.calgaryfoundation.org
Dr. Hart and son Oje with Ashid Bahl of For The Love of Children Society and Cambodian school children celebrating school supplies generously donated by ConocoPhillips Canada.
Nepal Earthquake Relief
Thanks to all for helping the OHF and the For the Love of Children Society raise over $25,000+ for the earthquake victims of Nepal through the five successful fundraising dinners held at the Himalayan Restaurant who generously donated all of the food for each event.
We built four new homes and helped aid two schools we support in Nepal and much more.
Thanks to the amazing support we’ve received, The Owen Hart Foundation helped raise a significant portion of the $200,000 needed to rebuilding the Sylvan Lake Lighthouse, a landmark and the only lighthouse in Alberta modeled after Canada’ss most famous lighthouse, the Peggy’s Point Lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. Thanks to all!
Imagine dealing with the stress of your child being in hospital and on top of that worrying about being able to afford your most basic needs.
Unfortunately, this is the reality for some families at the Alberta Children’s Hospital. Created as a lasting legacy, the Owen Hart Memorial Fund was established at the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation in 1999. This Fund is used to assist families who are facing financial challenges while their child is in Hospital such as bus and taxi costs, parking expenses, and meal vouchers for the hospital cafeteria. The special Fund allows our hospital’s social work team to respond to immediate needs. No family is turned away. Learn more.
