I support Capes for Kids and Holland Bloorview. Will you help too?

It's time to get awesome, so we can help kids find their own courage and superhero powers.

(Plus, there's a bonus prize here, so be sure to read until the end!)

Holland Bloorview is an important part of children's health and rehabilitation in Toronto. It has touched so many lives, but it has touched mine in several ways.

I watched my brother volunteer there back in the 1990s and saw how it instilled in him such joy to work with the kids. He grew his compassion and caring for others so much that now he's a doctor helping hundreds of people.

I watched as my friend and her two boys were tragically struck by a car in 2012. Her oldest son wasn't supposed to walk again. Or talk again. Or participate in school again. And every step of the way, Holland Bloorview gave him the power to persevere, grow and start to lead a life of a normal kid.

I watched as my own child was diagnosed with low tone central hypotonia (low muscle tone resulting in gross and fine motor skill issues). I saw the occupational therapies help him become stronger, more confident and ultimately catch up to kids his age.

People watch these kinds of miracles happen every day at Holland Bloorview. And it's time we helped make these miracles happen together.

From March 6-12, I will be wearing a cape to be a superhero for the kids at Holland Bloorview. Yes, I will be teaching in the cape. I will be grocery shopping in the cape. I will not be showering in the cape; I do have my limits. But everything else? Cape.

I want you to join me in supporting my week as a superhero for these kids. My goal is to raise at least $2000 for the kids. Any donation helps. (Donations are eligible for a tax receipt, which is emailed to you directly.) From games for their playroom to new therapy mateirals to even giving a child a voice for the first time, every dollar is going to directly change a child's life.

But that's not enough. I want to truly put your money where my mouth is. So:

Anyone who donates $50 or more will be entered into a draw to win one free private 60-minute lesson with me at Midtown Music School!

So there. Help me be a superhero, and learn something cool along the way. I will share as many pictures as I can in various scenarios while caped, so you know it's going to be a fun week.

And thank you for reading this far. And especially: Thank you for your generous support!
