Thank Yous

Huge thank you to the realtors of Zone 2 Vancouver Island Real Estate Board, who chose to donate to YANA as their Charity of Choice.  We are deeply grateful to these community-minded real estate agents for their continued support!

YANA is very grateful for our local Horseshoe Club, who raised funds for YANA at their recent Tournament.  Thank you for your donation, we appreciate it!

The appropriately named Uplifters Shop has recently lifted YANA’s spirits WAY UP, with their generous donation.  They have two promotions that benefit YANA:  Every pair of Novelty PJ Bottoms sold, $1 goes to YANA as well as their specially curated Gift Boxes, where 20% of the value of each gift box purchased goes to YANA when customer specifies it.  Thank you!

The Komox Masters Baseball League Players have all hit  “home runs”, in YANA’s opinion!  They generously donated funds to YANA and we are their biggest fans!

YANA is a big fan of Gratitude and right now, we’re feeling super thankful for Mudsharks Coffee Bar’s Grateful Bowl Program.   Every month, $1 from each delicious bowl goes to a local charity and YANA was their latest recipient.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We’d like to thank the Comox Lemon Squeezers – namely Kate, Everett, Bryn and Clara – for fundraising for YANA.  Every year, they set up a Lemonade Stand on, appropriately, Lemonade Stand Day, and raise money for a BC Charity as well as the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.  Sweeeeeeeet!  

On a hot day, is there anything better than ice-cold, homemade lemonade?   Yes!!….When it’s being sold by an enterprising and thoughtful youth named Ronan, in support of YANA!  You rock, Ronan!

Our hearts are full thanks to a young entrepreneur who has been selling bouquets of flowers outside her home, with proceeds donated to YANA. Thank you for generously giving back to other children and families in this community so creatively!


Shout out to Jan Kotyk for your generous heart (and incredible endurance!!) through your Run North for YANA fundraiser! Jan ran a whopping 203.84 kilometer in just 3 days, through every kind of weather imaginable, al while raising pledges to give back to YANA. We can’t thank you enough, Jan!

We are beaming with gratitude for the classroom full of students at Queeneesh Elementary who opened up their hearts to learn about YANA and the services available to children and families in our community. Their basket raffle fundraiser was a huge success, and we are grateful for the generous donation ANd the beautiful artwork that accompanied it!
