Help Breakfast Clubs of Canada students go to Leadership Camps by donating your Aeroplan Miles!
This time, the Air Canada Foundation and Aeroplan® have raised the bar to a new level. Not only do they help provide healthy breakfast for the next generation, they also help students develop their confidence and their self-esteem.
In fact, the whole month of September will be dedicated to Breakfast Clubs of Canada (BCC) and its Leadership Camps. Therefore, when you donate your Aeroplan Miles to the Air Canada Foundation for the benefit of Breakfast Clubs of Canada, Aeroplan will match your donation*, up to 1.5 Million miles!
The Air Canada Foundation already support BCC’s mission by providing airfare to school breakfast programs across the country, including in Aboriginal communities. This month is the perfect occasion for Aeroplan Members to double their good deeds.
Breakfast Clubs of Canada’s role is to ensure that all children have an equal chance to start their school day with a nutritious breakfast in an environment that promotes self-esteem. The organization serves up breakfast to tens of thousands of students every day in school breakfast programs across Canada. But BCC does more than just putting a good meal on the table. They will be cooking up unforgettable Leadership Camps for children and youth from breakfast programs. This experience will foster their leadership skills, develop their confidence and build their self-esteem.
The donated Aeroplan Miles to the Air Canada Foundation in September will allow students between 10 and 14 who have distinguished themselves by their commitment to or involvement with their peers, their schools and their communities, to attend one of Breakfast Clubs’ Leadership Camps, including one in April 2013.
Last year, thanks to the Air Canada Foundation, young leaders from everywhere in Canada had the chance to live the most amazing experience of their lives by going to the BCC Leadership Camp at the Tim Horton’s Children Foundation’s camp in Parry Sound, Ontario. They had the opportunity to face challenges which allowed them to discover the best in themselves. Aerial rope courses, music and danse classes, outdoor activities and much more were planned.
