For over 20 years, Bluenotes has been a proud partner of Kids Help Phone raising over $1.7 million dollars to date. KHP is Canada’s ONLY National Counselling Service for children, teens and even young adults. They provide a variety of online, telephone and even mobile app resources, with services in both English and French. As a charitable organization, they rely on the generous support of donors to fulfill their mission to help kids face a variety of challenges: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and always anonymously and confidentially.
Bluenotes has an annual commitment of offering holiday gift boxes for purchase at all locations across Canada. To expand on this commitment, for the past 5 years Bluenotes has created an exclusive, limited edition t-shirt to benefit Kids Help Phone, designed in collaboration with Canadian artists such as, Billy Talent, Lights and for the second time in 2015, Simple Plan. All proceeds from the sale of these boxes and the t-shirts go directly to supporting KHP and the variety of resources that they provide.
As bullying continues to impact and harm today’s youth, it is becoming increasingly important to reach young people and teens in ways they understand – through fashion, music, and with responsible and relatable role models. Bluenotes is incredibly excited to continue building on our long standing partnership with Kids Help Phone to help raise awareness about these issues, stimulate the necessary conversations and encourage positive change.
