Thank Yous

Big cheers to GP Vanier’s Leadership program.  These students are leading their way into all of our hearts here at YANA!  Thank you for your fundraising!                            

Looks like the sweet students at Ecole Puntledge Elementary School can’t get enough of baking and YANA couldn’t be more pleased! This other group of kidlets held another bake sale with the proceeds directed towards YANA. Thank you, students, for working hard to make a difference in your community!

Shout out to Max Oudendag of the BC Seafood Festival for raising funds and awareness for YANA during their recent Caesar Competition.  We’d also love to acknowledge the generosity of Match Eatery, for matching the donation! Long live the Caesar!

Domo Arigato to Mac Newton of Toshikan Karate and his amazing students for fundraising for YANA.  They performed 108 Kata (complex karate moves) which is physically demanding and can take about 3 hours to complete.  We’d also like to acknowledge Arrow Gonsalves of House of Now for her contribution to the 108 Kata Event.

YANA sends out a big hug to Emma Greene, of Hair by Emma.  She created a beautiful, bountiful raffle basket of goodies with help from friends.  She raffled it off at her business and donated the proceeds to YANA. We are touched by your thoughtfulness, thank you!

10 yr old Ellie has a huge heart!  In lieu of birthday gifts, she asks for donations to a variety of local organizations.  YANA has been fortunate enough to receive her donation twice now. Thank you, Ellie, for keeping us in mind and helping Comox Valley families!


Thank you to the students in the GP Vanier Interact Club for their generous donation to YANA. These amazing kids fundraise throughout the year to support local charities. These are the leaders of tomorrow and YANA feels they’re already making a huge difference in the lives of our local families and kids!

Kids love it when given the opportunity to dunk their school principal!  High fives to the good-natured principals who took one for the ‘YANA team’ at the school district track meet.  Our volunteers said the children were fabulous!

Alpine First Aid Medics are there when you need them and they were there at Comox Valley Snow to Surf event, where they volunteered their services and donated their fee to YANA. Thank you so much!

Thank you Brian McLean Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd for holding a customer promotion through the Valley Vonka campaign and donating some funds back to YANA. Your generous contribution is appreciated!
