Benson & Associates
is committed to supporting worthy causes at home and in the international community. We are especially pleased and honoured to contribute to two special causes: The Liberty Orphanage in Belize, Central America, and the Kids Up Front Foundation in Calgary. The Liberty Foundation exists to provide care, rehabilitation and education for abused and abandoned children in Belize, Central America. In a country that has the highest prevalence and fastest growth rate of HIV/AIDS in Central America and where 39% of children live below the poverty line, Liberty Children's Home does not just give a child shelter and food but provides an environment where children are respected, nurtured and treated as individuals. Liberty Children's Home opened its doors in the summer of 2005 and has been caring for abused and abandoned children ever since. Liberty Learning Centre opened the following year in 2006 to provide high quality child-centred education for pre-school children in the local community. Liberty Foundation is funded entirely by the profits of a small charity shop in the UK and the voluntary contributions of individuals, businesses, other charities and foundations. They also rely on volunteer workers to assist in the childcare, garden program, and other community initiatives.
Benson & Associates has donated over $3000 Belizian Dollars to the Orphanage, and has provided hands-on assistance with their childcare and Garden Program. We are proud to be on-going supporters of this worthy cause.Click here to see how you can help.
Kids Up Front is a national charity dedicated to providing fun and new experiences to children and families who may not have the means to experience special events. If you or your organization have unused tickets to sporting events, theatre, museums or any other fun event, donating to Kids Up Front makes sure they reach the thousands of kids who could really benefit from them. They also accept cash donations. Through Kids Up Front, children are attending sporting events, theatre productions, concerts, theme parks and world-class events. They're having first-ever vacations out of town, horseback riding, experiencing VIP treatment with celebrity sports figures, skating and experiencing mini Olympic events. Kids Up Front kids are participating in hands-on museum exhibits, drama and singing camps, and enjoying hockey and football games.
Benson & Associates has donated over $5000 dollars in cash and tickets, and we proudly support them with their Technical Support and Information Technology. Our partnership with Kids Up Front allows us to support an excellent cause that local children and families can benefit from, keeping us grounded in the community we serve.
