About Just 4 Kidz
Just 4 Kidz was founded in 2002 by the members of the Stampede City Progress Club.
Stampede City is a small men’s service club that operates in the city of Calgary and is part of the national organization, The Canadian Progress Club. www.progressclub.ca Stampede City’s main focus is fundraising and Community service aimed at benefiting children’s charities in Calgary.
In existence since 1973 the club has raised millions of dollars for local children’s charities. Some of these include Providence Calgary, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, Camp Quality, Canadian Special Olympics and A.C.E.T.S. Program through the Alberta Children's Hospital.
Stampede City’s premier fundraiser The Bullshooters Breakfast (www.bullshootersbreakfast.com) raises funds for these local causes.
Over the years Stampede City has been a major contributor to many of these programs but was unable to commit long term sustainable funding to any one charity. This is why the foundation was established. By accumulating a pool of funds, we have been able to commit to fixed amounts of funding to these charities which they can count on year after year. This allows the charity to focus on doing what they do best, helping children and their families.
One of the foundation’s first commitments was $250,000.00 over 10 years to the Alberta Children’s Hospital A.C.E.T.S program. This will enable the Hospital to purchase two Eye-follower Systems. These high-tech computerized systems will enable children who are not otherwise able the gift of being able to communicate with their families and the people around them.
We are currently involved in setting another long-term commitment to assist the A.C.E.T.S program through the Alberta Children's Hospital.
