January 2022 will mark the 4th edition of the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation's Thankathon, an event where all of our team take part in a phone marathon with one goal in mind: to reach the highest number of donors and tell them just how much their support meant during 2021.

Last year, our teams of healthcare and research professionals have stepped up to respond to the public health emergency, while still delivering priority care to children from across Quebec. Their gratitude, and the gratitude of the families they serve, has been immeasurable.

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., our team will aim to contact as many randomly-selected donors from the past year as possible.

No less than 6,542 donors were thanked through this initiative.

There are no more important words in philanthropy than "thank you", and no better way to start the new year than to put everything on hold to spread it to our donors.

We look forward to talking to you on January 18, 2022!

It is an extraordinary privilege for us to be beginning 2021 with you by our sides. Knowing you were there for us last year boosted our spirits at a time where our patients and teams needed it more than ever.
