About Give a Toonie Share a Dream

This spring, Staples Canada continued their amazing support of Special Olympics programs across the country with their 19th annual Give a Toonie Share a Dream fundraising campaign, which ran April 27 to May 27, 2019. During the campaign, Staples customers help make dreams happen by donating in stores and online.

Staples Canada stores across the country raised funds and awareness to help support more than 47,500 individuals with intellectual disabilities participating in high-quality year-round Special Olympics sport programs all over Canada. Supporters donated at their local Staples or while shopping online at www.staples.ca/shareadream.

During the campaign, Staples staff and customers enjoy meeting Special Olympics athletes, coaches, and volunteers at their local stores, and having fun with special events such as barbecues and other fundraising activities.

We are very grateful to all the Staples stores, staff, and customers in B.C. for their amazing support, and to the athletes and volunteers throughout the province who give great time and energy to help make this important campaign a success!
