I want to talk about two very special brothers from Toronto, Ontario who are raising funds to help kids in need.
Armaan and Imraan Fallahi have shaved their heads this week to raise funds for Sick Kids Hospital, which is the largest centre dedicated to improving children’s health in the country. Hundreds of children throughout Canada come to Sick Kids in Toronto every year to receive treatment for an illness or disease. Also, when children from developing countries come to Canada for a live-saving operation, they usually go to Sick Kids.
As part of their “Shave your Lid to Help a Kid” program, the boys are asking for donations to their initiative. All monies will do directly to Sick Kids Hospital.

This is the second time Armaan has taken action. Last year, he raised funds to help children in the Gaza Strip during the Israeli invasion. What both brothers are doing is a perfect example of young people making change. Through their own will, they are not only raising awareness about a very important issue, but raising funds that will help save lives.
In an era when health care expenditures are not keeping up with demand and hospitals are struggling to balance their budgets, we have to ensure that children in Canada – and around the world – get the health care they need and deserve.
I congratulate Armaan and Imraan for their bold efforts this month. I wish them the best of luck and I know they will succeed in raising thousands of dollars. Now is the time to give and make a difference. So what are you waiting for?
