Designating KIDCARECANADA in your United Way donation

Fri, 09/22/2017 - 09:38 -- elizabeth

Like many people, you probably support your community through the United Way.

Did you know you can donate to KIDCARECANADA by designating us in your United Way donation? Also, many organizations match donations to the United Way so you might have a way to double your donation.

It is good to do two things if you would like to donate to us through the United Way

  • Designate KIDCARECANADA Society
  • Provide your name so we can thank you – otherwise we just receive the donation as “anonymous.”

Thanking Dr. Carolyn Steinberg

Dr. Carolyn Steinberg, MSC, MD, FRCPC, appears in many KIDCARECANADA videos and over the years she has generously shared her deep understanding of the complexity of the child-raising experience. Through her words, our viewers learn more about the joys of having a baby and also about the challenges, especially when postpartum depression is present or the role brings unanticipated changes to mothers and fathers. Dr. Steinberg also explores the degree to which new babies understand more than the adults around them might realize.
