Days of Giving: Technology takes care with Samsung and Sick Kids Hospital

When it comes to tech there are so many choices out there and so many different companies offering very similar products.  Samsung has set itself apart as a brand that makes corporate social responsibility and giving back to the communities they operate in a priority.  That’s why we’re excited to partner with them to give away a brand new Galaxy A50 mobile device in this latest installment of our Days of Giving.

As a brand globally, Samsung turns all of October into their annual Month of Giving, with Samsung Canada dedicating a day in October to giving back to the communities where it operates.  Samsung also supports its staff’s charitable endeavor with donation matching, which turns into donation doubling throughout their times of giving.  Some Canadian organizations that Samsung has supported include  Daily Bread Food Bank, Jays Care Foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and David Suzuki Foundation.

This month Samsung is embracing the spirit of giving with another amazing organization, SickKids Foundation.  With the holidays around the corner, kids everywhere are anxiously waiting for Santa. The children at SickKids Hospital are no different, but some of them worry Santa may not be able find them. This December, Samsung Canada partnered with Chef Mary Berg to ensure that no sick kid feels forgotten on Christmas.  Chef Berg enlisted some very special assistants from SickKids to bake an unforgettable cookie for Santa in the Samsung test kitchen at Toronto’s Eaton Centre shopping mall (check out this behind the scenes look at the cookie making magic on the Samsung Canada YouTube page here.)

Along with that festive experience, Samsung will also be matching individual donations to the SickKids Foundation Milk & Cookies Campaign, up to a total of $25,000. Canadians can help spread the holiday cheer by donating at  from now through to December 24.

In the spirit of holiday giving, we’ve also partnered with Samsung to give away a brand new Galaxy A50 mobile device in our winner’s choice of color!



With premium camera features, a long-lasting, fast-charging battery and Super AMOLED Infinity-U display, and 64gb of built in storage, the Galaxy A50 feels like a high end device, at a far more accessible price point.  Operating at the cross section of function, fashion and entertainment, this phone makes for the perfect holiday gift for someone you care about, or keep it for yourself to help capture all your holiday memories.
