Christmas Show

Children Now is currently in the process of putting together a wonderful Christmas celebration for hundreds of underprivileged children, aged between 4 and 12 years old, living in the metropolitan areas of Montreal and Quebec City. The children are selected in collaboration with the School Boards.

With Covid-19 risking the health and safety of our community, we have made modifications to our annual Christmas Shows to ensure everyone’s safety. Rather than hosting the event in a hotel’s ballroom as we usually do, we are going directly to the schools and turning their gymnasiums into Winter Wonderlands. Additionally, as per current safety guidelines, the shows will be entirely virtual. To ensure an interactive experience, a projector will be installed in the gymnasium so that the animators can both hear and see the children in real time. Similarly, the children will also be able to see the show from their respective classrooms thanks to the use of smart boards. This method was carried out for our 2021 Easter Parties and our 2020 Christmas Show in Montreal, and much to our delight, the events were an absolute success.

This year, the events will take place on December 14 in Montreal, and December 16 in Quebec. 700 underprivileged children will have the chance to meet Santa Claus, his reindeers, Mrs. Claus, and the Star Fairy. Additionally, there will be an interactive show offered by our professional animators and, in collaboration with the school caterers, we will be providing a delicious hot Christmas lunch. Finally, at the end of this wonderful day, the long-awaited Christmas gifts will be distributed to them thanks to the generosity of our loyal sponsors. We take the opportunity of this occasion to give them useful gifts such as warm clothing, mittens, scarves, school supplies, toys and more.

Our greatest desire during this holiday season is to fulfill the wish of these underprivileged children for a real Christmas! The positive effects that these types of events have on children is undeniable. Indeed, the enchantment of these memorable few hours gives them renewed hope for the future. Your help is essential to transform this day into a reality. Thank you for your support!
