Laces Program

 

grounded people love contributing to communities all over the world. Through our LACES program, grounded people partners with charity organizations across the globe.

Each organization picks a special colour of LACES to represent its charity. You pick the LACES that support the charity of your choice and 100% of its proceeds go to that charity!

One Tree Planted - Rebuilding the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil

Our partners in Brazil are working to reconnect the Morro do Diablo State Park and the Black Lion Tamarin Ecological station, two core areas of the Upper Parana Atlantic Rainforest Biosphere Reserve. This will be Brazil’s largest reforestation corridor. It will create 60,000 hectares of connected forest for endemic and endangered species and improve the livelihoods of countless families.

KidSafe Project Society - Providing a Safe Haven for Children and Youth in Canada

When schools close, KidSafe opens. With 1 in 5 Vancouver children living in poverty, the unjust and common reality for tens of thousands of local children is that out-of-school periods are times of instability, hunger and loneliness. By supporting KidSafe, you can help provide vulnerable children with the safety, health and happiness they need and deserve. Each child is professionaly referred to KidSafe by school staff or social workers as a child in need of a safe and accessible environment while schools are traditionally closed. 

KidSafe programs include Winter, Spring and Summer break programs, a multi-faceted Youth Program, and after-school programs to ensure stability year around for the children and youth we serve.

Make-A-Wish® Foundation of Canada - Creating Life-Changing Wishes For Children With Critical Illnesses.

Make-A-Wish Canada creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. We are on a quest to bring every eligible child's wish to life because a wish is an integral part of a child's treatment journey. Research shows children who have wishes granted can build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. Headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, Make-A-Wish Canada is the world’s leading children’s wish-granting organization, serving children in every community in Canada, and in more than 50 countries worldwide.

Since 1983, Make-A-Wish® Canada has granted over 36,000 wishes across the country, over 1,000 last year alone.
