The CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation Thankathon

On January 23, 2024, during its 6th annual Thankathon, the entire CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation team is putting everything on hold to pick up the phone and spend the day saying heartfelt thank-yous to its donor community. 

Taking a moment to say thank you, because we can only grow beyond together!

The Thankathon is a day dedicated to expressing our most sincere gratitude to the people whose commitment and generosity allow us to carry out our mission. People who truly hold the health of children and the well-being of their loved ones to heart. 
You made a donation in 2023? Make sure to keep your phone close at hand on Tuesday, January 23! Between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., we will be reaching out to as many randomly selected donors as possible. Last year, we managed to extend a personal thank-you to no fewer than 5,028 of you!  
The contribution of every member of our donor community is more essential than ever: last June, the Foundation launched its historic Grow Beyond fundraising campaign. With you by their sides in this era of astonishing scientific breakthroughs, the teams at Sainte-Justine are harnessing all of their expertise and compassion to seize the opportunities most likely to transform paediatric care now, and in the future, all across Quebec. It’s a major societal project! 

As we witness the extraordinary impact of your generosity on children’s health, the words “thank you” are in our hearts daily. There’s no better way to start the year than by taking the time to pass this important message along.  If we don’t have the chance to tell you so directly, rest assured that our gratitude shines as bright as the hope that you bring to care teams, families, and young patients. 
We look forward to talking to you!

“Our gratitude goes beyond words!” 
Throughout her pregnancy, Marilou and Francis had to travel between Rouyn-Noranda and Montreal—right up until Louis-Charles’ preterm birth, at 29 weeks and 6 days. From the High-Risk Pregnancy Clinic to the Nephrology, Cardiology, Genomics, Neonatology, and Social Services units, their challenging journey was touched by your kindness.  
“Sainte-Justine is exceptional, both from a medical and a humane perspective. We always knew our Loulou was in the best of hands. We felt welcomed as if into a family, and that’s invaluable! You make all the difference.”
