Since 2013, Chelsea Hotel has donated over $1 million in support of AboutKidsHealth, a health education resource for children, youth and caregivers that empowers families to become a partner in their health care by equipping them with reliable, evidence-based health information that is easy to understand and immediately available, regardless of where they are in Canada or the world. Chelsea Hotel’s commitment helps ensure that SickKids can continue to offer the knowledge that can save a child’s life and help improve the overall well-being of Canadian families.

The ability to give back to the community is not only an important philosophy of the Chelsea Hotel, Toronto but it is something the hotel practices every day. We are not only willing to go above and beyond to bring comfort to our guests, but also to bring comfort to families in need in the local community in which we operate. It is our hope to not only increase awareness for SickKids but to continue to raise much-needed funds to help those children in their care,” said Josef Ebner, regional vice-president, Canada & managing director, Chelsea Hotel, Toronto.
