For the past four years, Topper’s Pizza Canada has partnered with SickKids Foundation on a 10-week Feel Good Meal campaign which raises funds through customer online and in-store donations for The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto.

After exceeding last year’s campaign target, Topper’s Pizza has increased its 2017 goal to $50,000 and weekly totals show it is well on track to reach it. 

“Our North Bay customers have been among the Top 5 in donations collected in the first three weeks of our campaign, giving generously at more than $1,100 with seven weeks still left to go,” says Stewart Barton, director of marketing for Topper’s Pizza Canada.

“We’re thrilled with the community enthusiasm and support around this campaign,”

The number of children from North Bay who used SickKids services in 2015 was at 431 total visits, according to patient statistics. That number includes clinic, inpatient and emergency visits whereby the family was driving 360 km or were airlifted to access services.  

“We rely on the generous support from the community and are grateful for the ongoing commitment of Topper’s Pizza Canada,” says Seanna Millar, vice-president, corporate partnerships, SickKids Foundation. “SickKids treats patients from across the province and the funds raised from this initiative will help us continue to fund the fight against the greatest challenges in child health for our patients in Ontario and beyond.”

The Feel Good campaign has raised more than $200,000 in donations over the past four years for the hospital. The money is put toward life-saving care, research and education. The majority of the donations came from Topper's Pizza locations throughout Ontario and outside of the GTA, reaffirming that SickKids impacts lives across the province.

At the end of its third week, Topper’s had already collected more than $13,000 and the campaign will continue until May 28.

Customers are choosing to donate one of three ways; online/phone checkout, in-store donation, or by ordering the Topper’s Feel Good Meal which was created just for SickKids. Topper’s donates $2 from every Feel Good Meal sold, which includes one large four-topping pizza and a desert pizza.
