The Cause

Help support Children’s Aid

The Children’s Aid Foundation supports programs that improve the lives of abused, neglected and high-risk children through Education, Enrichment and Prevention.

In Canada, more than 300,000 children are abused or neglected each year. Some have been victims of physical, emotional or sexual abuse, while others have been abandoned or exploited. From a very young age, these children have experienced fear, mistrust and feelings of worthlessness.

Since 1979, the Children’s Aid Foundation has been helping these children live safer and happier lives through three critical areas:

  • Education programs that give children a chance to pursue their dreams and build successful lives form themselves;
  • Enrichment programs that provide recreational and cultural opportunities so that disadvantaged children can experience healthy development; and
  • Prevention programs that provide support for families before abuse and neglect begin.

Since Newzapalooza first took to the stage 12 years ago, the event has raised more than $100,000 for the Children’s Aid Foundation.
