From February 1- 28, head outside, make your snow angel and share your videos or images on social media using the hashtag #SnowAngelChallenge. There are many prizes to be won, including a category for most outrageous, so wear your favourite costume, silly hat or bathing suit- be creative! It is free to participate, but those who register to collect donations are entered to win even more prizes.
Mayor Jim Watson has proclaimed Friday February 18th Snow Angel Day in Ottawa.
Every year, The Snowsuit Fund purchases and distributes more than 16,000 snowsuits to low income children 15 years and younger in Ottawa, bringing dignity and hope to families struggling with the necessities of life. Our core mission is to ensure that Ottawa’s most vulnerable children can have warm snowsuits to play outside in winter – without their families having to sacrifice other priorities. Perhaps few people know that as a grassroots organization, the Snowsuit Fund receives no government funding and relies on the generosity of caring groups and individuals to keep its 40-year operation going.
