On May 4, people from all corners of the province — individuals, families, corporations and schools — are encouraged to #JeanUp and support kids at BC Children’s Hospital.
How does it work? Simply buy a button ($5) or lapel pin ($20) from one of the BCCHF official retailers and then wear your favourite denim outfit on Jeans Day.
Can’t make it to an official retailer? You can buy a virtual pin. Details can be found on the official BCCHF website.
We were joined in the 1075 KISS FM studio today by Sheila from Save-On Foods. Sheila is an avid supporter of the B.C. Children’s Hospital for several reasons. Village Green Centre Save-On Foods store Manager Rob Cashato says that Sheila comes in every day of work, early, as she’s that passionate about fundraising for the B.C. Children’s Hospital, and specifically with JEANS DAY.
Her own granddaughter had to be air-ambulanced to B.C Children’s Hospital. Olivia is thriving today.
Sheila reminds you that “Lapel pins are tax deductible and any donation over $20.00 is tax deductible. Cash, debit, credit cards and cheques made out to Save-On Foods can be accepted.
Children’s hospital had 316 patients from Vernon last year adding up tp 931 visits from Vernon alone. We encourage individuals of all ages, organizations and companies to help support the great need for BCCH.
Thanks to the community for their continues support.”
Save-On Foods at Polson Mall and some local banks are supporting JEANS DAY as well. We hope you will too.
And since it’s Jeans Day, and Throwback Thursday, how about a little Neil Diamond who says it best about Blue Jeans!
