Calgary, Canada, December 20, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- For years now, Digital Lion has been working toward their mission to Design a Better World®. In an effort to help make the world a better place, the graphic design and professional website development company chooses a charity each year to donate 10 percent of their profits to. This year, they chose the EvenStart Foundation as a recipient of their shared profit, further supporting the organization’s mission of helping some of the most disadvantaged children in the Calgary area get an even start in life.
“The children of Calgary are our future, making it so important that we don’t turn a blind eye to those who are so severely disadvantaged from a young age,” explains Ryan Levin, president of Digital Lion. “By supporting the organization’s mission, we will be taking steps to help the children of Calgary grow up to become an important part of our community.”
The EvenStart Foundation was started over 20 years ago, when Ilona Boyce saw how crucial the need was for children from backgrounds of poverty and trauma to be able to get an even start. She founded the organization to help keep these at-risk children from falling through the cracks. The program has grown into one that has helped more than 3,000 children and continues to help more each year.
Through the EvenStart Foundation, children receive play therapy and special needs education. The program is designed to help children ages 3-5 who come from backgrounds of abuse, neglect, or poverty. It’s estimated that between 70-90 percent of children coming from these types of situations are delayed in normal development. They simply haven’t received an even start in life, which is something that the foundation aims to provide them with. The program focuses on helping these children understand their value and realize their potential, infusing them with the confidence that they need to succeed as they go forward in life.
Additionally, the EvenStart Foundation has a Holiday Hampers program, which helps families in need during the holiday season. Each year, the organization teams up with other local organizations to help many families by providing them with a hamper filled with food, including everything they need to make a holiday dinner and a gift card to purchase gifts for everyone in the family.
“We are grateful for the wonderful year that we have had here at Digital Lion, and we are committed to giving back to help Design a Better World®,” added Levin. “We believe that giving these at-risk kids a stronger foundation will have a long lasting and positive impact on our community. We are pleased to support giving at-risk kids an even start.”
