Toronto, Canada (PressExposure) January 23, 2009 -- It Starts with Giving Back â The Philanthropic Commitment of Kevin McNabb International
Kevin McNabb International which is made up of four divisions: Personal Development Resources, Consulting, Freelance Writing and a Health & Personal Care Division has made the commitment that 25% of it's revenue (not profits) will be donated to two charities; The Sick Kids Foundation (a local Canadian charity) and The Childrenâs Miracle Network (an international charity).
The Sick Kids Foundation
SickKids Foundation is the largest non-governmental granting agency in child health in Canada. Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation has granted over $500 million to The Hospital for Sick Children and over $60 million to researchers across the country.
Through its National Grants Program, SickKids Foundation invests $4 million annually across Canada in paediatric research, focusing on issues important to children's health which have not been addressed elsewhere.
Our mission is to inspire our communities to invest in health and scientific advances to improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world.
We have invested our community's contributions in world-leading children's health research and care. We believe there is no one else in Canada as dedicated as we are to eliminating the gap between what is happening in child health research, education and training, and what should be happening.
Our vision: Healthier Children. A Better World.â¢
