The Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity Society (CRCCS) was created in Spring 2011 by Charlene’s husband Dan Reaveley. After suffering the loss of his wife in a tragic hit-and-run accident by a drunk driver, he was left to pick up the pieces of their shattered dreams, becoming the sole financial provider and caregiver to their four children. Char’s passion for children and desire for a closer community was his inspiration. Charlene would do anything to make a child smile or just to see a little sparkle in their eye – this was the spirit of Charlene that motivated Dan to reach out and support families experiencing a loss.
The Charlene Reaveley Children’s Charity was created to offer support and assistance to grieving children and their families. What was needed in Dan’s experience was counselling without financial burden, access to books and resources within the community and a connection to families who were also experiencing a loss in their lives.
CRCCS was created to keep Charlene’s memory alive and to help other children and their families going through similar circumstances, providing them with much-needed counselling and support.

The Children’s Organ Transplant Society (COTS) is a registered charity started to support BC families who have children who are waiting for an organ transplant or who have had an organ transplant. All the families who are part of COTS have gone or will go through this life transforming experience, understand firsthand that families need more than medical support. They need a community of people who have shared similar experiences.
COTS is a community, a support network, a place to share and to learn. And although every transplant experience is unique, what is known is that when a child has had an organ transplant, it changes the lives of everyone in the family.

The KidSafe Project Society is a registered Canadian charity based in Vancouver, British Columbia. We were founded in 1993 by a group of concerned citizens, The Vancouver Sun newspaper and public school teachers in response to a local tragedy that saw a young child assaulted and abandoned when left home alone during school break. The community galvanized into action forming KidSafe, with the mission to provide nurturing safe havens for vulnerable inner-city children when schools are traditionally closed.

Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada is dedicated to improving the lives of children and youth in the child welfare system. The over 67,000 children and youth in care in Canada often grow up in difficult and damaging circumstances. Sometimes this means that being homeless is better than being at home. Compounding this trauma is the sense of isolation that comes from not having the stable support of friends or family that most of us take for granted.
The "Gaby Davis Foundation" was started in memory our daughter and friend Gabrielle Davis who lost her battle with childhood cancer in March 2007.
Her brave fight against cancer inspired us to fulfill her wish to help other families fighting this terrible beast. Our goal with this foundation is to offer support and assistance to British Columbian children with cancer and their families in times of financial need. Gaby wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
