The Staples “Give a Toonie. Share a Dream” campaign may have come to a close, but the remarkable benefits of this campaign will be felt for a long time in hundreds of communities, everyday across our country.

This year, an astounding $508,560 was raised in support of our movement. We want to recognize and thank Staples store teams and Canadians too for their generosity and support. Local clubs and volunteers can continue enriching the lives of children and adults with an intellectual disability through their unique sport programs.

Special kudos to the two grand-prize-winning stores for their stellar efforts: #338 in Slave Lake, Alberta and #324 in Huntsville, Ontario.

From May 5 to 26, 2012, donations were accepted in 300+ Staples and Bureau en Gros stores across the country during the annual fundraiser, now in its 13th year.
