Dear Supporters, This week marks the commencement of our 2015 11 for 11 Campaign where we ask all Canadians to donate $11 in support of educational scholarships for the children of our fallen heroes. As we kick off our campaign we are also very proud to announce that with your generosity we have awarded $70,000 in scholarships for the 2015 academic term. Since 2009, the Canadian Hero Fund has given away over $250,000 in academic support. We call on you again this November to open your hearts and give in support of military families. With your donation we can ensure that those families who experience a traumatic loss get the support they require from their community. Canadians can ensure a positive future for the children of our heroes. Please visit 11for11.ca and give $11 to support our heroes and their families. Sincerely, Tim Peters & Alan Fraser Co-Founders, Canadian Hero Fund

But they also give us hope for the future of a young man with a brave role model for a father, a strong community around him, and an entire country behind him. I think it is really important that we never forget Marcus. He represents every child who has lost a parent in service to Canada. Since 2002, over 150 soldiers have given their lives for our country. Like Corporal Nathan Cirillo, many of them have left young children behind. Until last week, most of us had never seen the faces of the children who lost a parent. But these children are out there, some as young as Marcus, others young adults now, and they have all given something to Canada that we can never fully repay. For those of […]
