Demo 2000 to include Log A Load For Kids Fundraiser


Back to Demo 2000


The Canadian Woodlands Forum will launch its annual Log A Load For Kids campaign at the Demo 2000 International show and conference being held in Kelowna, BC from September 11 to 16.

The annual campaign encourages loggers and others in the forest products community to donate the value of a load of logs (or any amount) to their local Children's Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals. CMN ensures that quality health care is available to Canada's most vulnerable children. One hundred per cent of each donation goes to help children-no money is deducted for administrative costs.

The Log A Load For Kids Canada program is modelled after a similar successful program in the US. "The CWF will launch the 2001 campaign at its Demo 2000 International show with a first ever onsite Log A Load fundraiser and promotional event," says Canadian Woodlands Forum executive director Guillaume Gignac. "The whole idea is drawing real enthusiasm ."

The Log a Load for Kids Canada fundraising campaign encourages loggers and others in the industry to donate the value of a load of logs (or any amount) to their local Children's Miracle Network (CMN) hospitals.

The CWF intends to seek partners in the forest industry to support the program across Canada. Based in Woodbridge, Ontario and Salt Lake City, Utah, the Children's Miracle Network takes an active role in providing better health care to children through its 170 associated hospitals and foundations. It raises money through corporate sponsors, associations and community businesses. CMN affiliated hospitals treat 14 million children across North America each year, two million of those are Canadian children. Contact Canadian Woodlands Forum at (514) 3926947 for more information.
