Cowbell's Greener Pastures Fund surpasses $500,000 for children's hospitals
Blyth Cowbell Brewing Company is pleased to announce it has achieved a major milestone with its Greener Pastures Community Fund. As of Oct. 30, 2020, Cowbell has raised and donated over $500,000 in support of vital, life-saving programs at Ontario’s four children’s hospitals.
Cowbell has been raising the funds, one nickel at a time, since May of 2016 - and 100 per cent of funds are donated.
The Greener Pastures Community Fund is just one of the ways Cowbell gives back to the broader community. “The entire team at Cowbell Brewing appreciates the support for our beer, our people and our story, from our guests and customers across Ontario. Thank you for making this possible,” says Alecia Anderson, Cowbell’s Director of Greener Pastures.
• Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, Ottawa: Funds are directed to the art therapy program, helping young patients and family members with healing and self-expression through art. This program is provided by accredited art therapists.
• SickKids, Toronto: A specific donation has been made to the epilepsy classroom, as well as continuing support for the greatest priority needs within patient care, research and education that have life changing and saving effects on young patients and families.
• McMaster Children’s Hospital, Hamilton: Donations are directed toward necessary renovations to the pediatric hematology/oncology clinic.
• Children’s Hospital, London: Ongoing support for the music therapy program for patients to improve areas of health, functioning and well-being within a therapeutic relationship with an accredited music therapist.
“Thanks to the healthcare heroes for the sacrifices made every day, and especially during this time of such uncertainty. Their service, commitment and courage deserves our deepest gratitude and sincere appreciation,” says Anderson.
