And we’re off! The 11th edition of the Tree of Lights campaign is officially underway! Let’s send warm wishes of love to Sainte-Justine’s children, families and staff!

Yesterday, the CHU Sainte-Justine and its partners, Rythme and Metro, proudly kicked off the 11th edition of Sainte-Justine’s Tree of Lights and witnessed the magic of its first illumination together with children, families and well-known personalities. This year’s goal is to illuminate 125,000 lights of hope in the Tree by December 13.

For Vanaëlle and Éric, parents of 3-year-old Amy who has been in remission since February after a bout of cancer, the Tree of Lights touched their hearts during their seven months at Sainte-Justine. 

The Tree of Lights is a chain of caring and compassion that brings comfort and hope. Every light shining on the Tree was like a hand reaching out to us. By helping light up the Tree, you didn’t just make our holidays a little brighter – you made our lives brighter.

Shining brightly, the beautiful tree will brighten the hearts of the families at Sainte-Justine who will be spending the holidays in the hospital, while every donation will make a difference the whole year through

You give Sainte-Justine the ambition and the ability to better heal children like our daughter. Beyond lighting up their eyes, the Tree makes it possible for young patients to benefit from the best possible care. Thank you for your support.

Four videos to watch

To bear witness to the unique impact that the Tree of Lights has on so many lives, well-known personalities went to meet some of Sainte-Justine’s families as well as one of the nurses. Stay tuned! All four videos will premiere on the Salut Bonjour television program on December 13.

Plenty of ways to make life brighter

For a 5th consecutive year, Metro is generously partnering with the campaign and will once again offer clients in its Metro and Metro Plus grocery stores across Quebec the option of making a donation at the checkout.

Also, donors visiting are invited to join the Twinkle Club. When you light up 10 or more lights, MEGATM, part of the Mattel® family, will contribute 5 more, up to $40,000.

Until December 13, the Tree of Lights will get progressively brighter each day, reflecting your generous donations! In support of the children and families who will be spending the holidays at the hospital this year, let your lights of hope shine in the Sainte-Justine Tree of Lights.

Let’s make life brighter for all of them!
