The Canadian Hero Fund was founded in 2009 by students and recent graduates at the University of Toronto who were deeply affected by the increasing number of Canadian casualties in Afghanistan and the young families they left behind. As university students, the founders understood the benefits of post-secondary education and felt the best way they could help these families was to provide the same opportunities to the dependents of fallen Canadian soldiers. The initial project of the Canadian Hero Fund is therefore to provide post-secondary scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen Canadian soldiers.
You can donate or organize an event to help aid this very important charity. It is only fair that the families of soldiers who give their lives for this country should be helped with their post secondary education.
If you are financially unable to help at the moment, you can do something for free that supports the military. Simply wear red on Fridays. It shows that you are thinking of the men and women who are putting their lives in danger. It doesn’t cost money, it only takes a moment of your time to decide what to wear. Wear red on Fridays and be proud of your men and women in the military.
