About The Kol Hope Foundation
The Kol Hope Foundation for children is a Canadian charitable organization that helps and supports children with disabilities in Canada and around the world. The foundation is named after Kol, who was born with Trisomy 13, a fatal genetic syndrome. Kol was severely disabled, required life support and 24 hour care, was fed by g-tube and was unable to walk or talk. He passed away on October 9, 2011, and has left behind an incredible legacy of love, charity and hope. He is the story and inspiration behind The Kol Hope Foundation for children. Since its inception, the foundation has been devoted and dedicated to caring for children with disabilities. Kol Hope is proud to have Easter Seals, SickKids and World Vision as its Canadian beneficiaries.
The Kol Hope Foundation is pleased to partner with TW Toronto Women's Fashion Week in it’s initiative to fuse fashion and charity together, through WOMENSFASHION4HOPE, which is specifically aimed at raising funds for the Kol Hope Fund at Easter Seals Canada.
Easter Seals Canada played an important role in Kol’s survival, and it was through their services and respite care that allowed Kol to thrive and survive. Kol's very first wheelchair was provided by Easter Seals Canada. This special fund created under his name, allows all the “little Kols” of the world, a chance for a better life. The Kol Hope Fund at Easter Seals Canada supports the work of organization in sending kids with disabilities to summer camps, provide wheelchairs and respite care.
