Angel has been supporting Variety Club for many years! Did you know that Angel’s home town (Port Alberni) is known as ‘the Community with a Heart’? What many people don’t know is that this all began with the community of Port Albern coming together (with love and thanks to the local Alberni Mall Coordinator Joanne Melling who passed away 2005) to help support British Columbia’s Variety Club (now Variety- the Children’s Charity.) Maybe just maybe, a part of Angel’s giving personality started with that community’s heart for Variety. Angel has been raising funds for Variety since 2001! Just five years old, and already she was helping sick kids across British Columbia.
Over the years Angel has raised over $300,000 for Variety – the Children’s Charity. When Angel founded Hugginz by Angel, her goal was to wrap sick kids in warm hugs and support children and families through childhood illness, disabilities, and crisis. That is why fundraising for Variety (and other children’s organizations) is a big part of what her Foundation does.
Watch for Angel’s Hugginz By Angel fundraising efforts to help support Variety – the Children’s Charity at the beginning of each year.
