Last week Good Neighbors Canada visited the London Children's Museum for a special occasion. Today we would like to share a message from Mira Noordermeer, Marketing and Communications Coordinator for the space.

The London Children’s Museum welcomes more than 88,000 visitors a year to three floors of interactive exhibits, educational programs and pure fun. We are so proud to help families have access to all the learning experiences they offer!

Good Neighbors Canada donated $12,000 towards the Share the Fun Subsidy Program to ensure every child in the community, regardless of economic circumstance, has access to hands-on learning experiences.

Thank you, Good Neighbors Canada!

Thanks to generous support from Good Neighbors Canada, the London Children’s Museum is providing learning opportunities to children facing financial barriers. A $12,000 gift from Good Neighbors Canada will provide 80 family memberships and 10 subsidized children’s day camp spots to families in need.

“We want to contribute to a diverse and inclusive environment and give children the opportunity to create memorable experiences. We believe this donation will go a long way to help more families access everything the Children’s Museum offers.” - Hyang Cho, Executive Director, Good Neighbors Canada.

“At the London Children’s Museum, we believe all children, regardless of economic circumstance, should have access to hands-on learning experiences. This gift from Good Neighbors Canada will help ensure children in our community are able to access educational opportunities that benefit their healthy growth and development.” - Amanda Conlon, Executive Director, London Children’s Museum.
