It’s Smile Cookie Week!


Durham Region, grab a smile to give a smile.

Every Smile Cookie counts when it comes to helping seriously ill children and their families in your community. We’re excited to announce that Starlight Children’s Foundation Canada has been proudly selected as Durham Region’s charity of choice for Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Week!

Until September 19th in Durham Region, 100% of the proceeds of every Smile Cookie purchased will be donated to Starlight Canada. Available at all locations across the Durham Region in Pickering, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Bowmanville, Courtice, Newcastle, Orono and Port Perry, make sure to head to your local Tim Hortons store today (and every other day this week!) to grab as many as you can for only $1 each!

Enjoy your tasty Smile Cookie even more knowing that each bite helps sick kids in your very community, just like Madison.

Madison was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and nephrotic syndrome when she was just over a year old. Diagnoses that affect mobility and the kidneys, her days are now filled with appointments, therapies, surgeries, and doctors’ visits, which doesn’t leave much time to be a kid or spend time with family.

For 7-year-old Madison, the hardest part about living with her conditions is not being able to keep up with her brother or friends. Although she is a resilient young girl who always has a smile on her face, it does bother her that she can’t walk like her friends can and that therapy sessions often replace play dates.

Starlight Canada makes sure that no matter the obstacle, her childhood is still filled with unforgettable experiences to help put a smile on her face and hold onto hope. Being a lover of swimming, one of her family’s favourite memories with Starlight Canada was going to Great Wolf Lodge, where they splashed away all their worries for a day!

Want to pre-order in bulk for your colleagues, students, or family to help kids like Madison? Fill out the pre-order form now!
