BBQ raises bucks for bedtime

An article published on the Kiwanis International website.

The Aktion Club of Toronto, Ontario, served its third annual barbecue, and children around the world are sleeping peacefully as a result.

Members wanted to support Sleeping Children Around the World, and the barbecue’s CAN$330 profits were enough to provide beds, pajamas, and other bedtime items for 11 children in developing nations.

Staff members from the club’s supporting agency, Community Living Toronto, joined Toronto-area Kiwanis club members and other friends, at the Aktion Club fundraiser.
