MAKING A DIFFERENCE STARTS WITH A SMILE 

When you buy a smile cookie, you can make a difference. From September 16 – 22 participating Tim Hortons restaurants in the Barrie, Stroud and Alcona areas will donate the full $1 from each freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie sold back to Royal Victoria's Regional Health Centre’s (RVH) Birthing Unit and Hospice Simcoe.

The Smile Cookie campaign began in 1996 to help raise funds for the Hamilton Children's Hospital in Ontario and has grown to become a major fundraising event at Tim Hortons restaurants nationally. In 2018, the Smile Cookie campaign raised $7.8 million across Canada. This year, there are 550 Canadian charities, hospitals and community programs supported through the Smile Cookie campaign. 

There are lots of ways to treat others to Smile Cookies!

  • Bring them to your upcoming staff meeting
  • Share them in the lunch room
  • Bring them home for dessert
  • Surprise valued clients and special people in your life
  • Make your staff smile by treating them to an afternoon snack

Thank you for supporting RVH’s tiniest patients through Smile Cookies! RVH is committed to giving a healthy start to the over 2,000 babies born here every year. With your support we will undergo significant renovations and expansions in our birthing unit and maternal care area - because moms and babies need sufficient space to recover and thrive, surrounded by their loved ones. 

Do you have a fun photo of you, your family, friends, colleagues or staff enjoying
Smile Cookies? Send it to McKennaB@rvh.on.ca so we can share it on the RVH Foundation social media pages – it will make us and others smile and want to buy Smile Cookies!
