Thank you to Ella, a Grade 1 student from Binbrook who raised money for McMaster Children’s Hospital through three separate events.

Financial literacy and philanthropy are two concepts that can help children lead more successful and fulfilling lives. Entrepreneur Teresa Cascioli has created the M is for Money book series to teach children between the ages of 5 and 8 about financial literacy. The series follows twins Tessa and Benji as they earn, save and budget during the course of their adventures. Ella was recognized for her initiative in a meeting with Teresa at Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation’s office. Following the meeting, Ella was inspired to encage her classmates in an even larger community fundraising effort, nearly doubling her previous fundraising success. Mom, Erin said  “it is truly inspiring to see how these little people really do see how they can make such a big difference in the world.” Thank you to Ella and all the children who fundraised on our behalf.
