iKare4Kids (Proudly partnered with Ronald McDonald House Charities Northern Alberta)

It was a very tough year for me.  This past January I had to say my final good-byes to our dearly loved “Sparkle-Princess.” I remember the exact moment when I was sitting at her bedside in the Stollery Hospital with tears spilling down my cheeks that her “Nana” came over to me and put her arm around me. She said:


Thank you for all that you do. Don’t ever stop. We could never have imagined this past year without an iPad while on this journey over this past year. There are so many families in need of this who can’t afford to buy one”.  



This is a moment that is burned into my memory forever, as a stark reminder why iKare4kids began. As a non-profit initiative, partnered with Ronald McDonald House Northern Alberta Charities, we help families of seriously ill/hospitalized children, in financial need of a new or gently used donated iPad/tablet.  

These devices help lessen the burden for sick children and their families. These iPad/tablets:

• Hold Medical & Information
• Contain Treatment Plans
• Have Skype & Video Capabilities for Communication with Family Members Abroad
• Allow Children to do Online Schooling Lessons
• Have Music and Games on them to bring comfort and joy to the lives of these sick children while they may be bored and depressed in the hospital. 


This past year, iKare4kids helped families from across the country whose children were in hospitals in Edmonton fighting Leukaemia, brain cancer, lung transplants, sicknesses that led to disabilities and immobility, trauma that led to a leg amputation etc.
