Are you the next War Child Hero?

We are excited to announce that once again this summer you may meet some friendly smiling faces at your door, wearing War Child T-shirts and lanyards. These newest members of our team are highly trained, courteous professionals who share our commitment to protecting childhood in war zones. They are helping us recruit new War Child Heroes, whose commitment to donate monthly is helping make our programs possible.

If you meet one of our fundraisers we encourage you to stop and have a conversation with them. If you aren’t yet a monthly donor, they would be happy to tell you all about the benefits this form of giving brings, the impact you’ll be having on the lives of children in war torn countries and even sign you up right there on the spot. If you’re already a monthly donor, you’re eligible to receive a free high-five, so be sure take them up on this special offer.

These outgoing men and women that are knocking on doors are not volunteers. While volunteers often take part in our initiatives, the scope of our campaign and the sensitive nature of the your personal information being exchanged demands the accountability of a trained and appropriately compensated professional. War Child has partnered with Donorworx to make this campaign possible. These fundraisers are not paid on a commission basis.

How did our fundraisers fare? We’d love to hear from you.

If you do have an encounter with one of our fundraisers – good, or less than good – we’d love to hear from you about it. We also welcome any questions or concerns you might like to share in regards to this type of fundraising. War Child has always made every effort to be transparent and accountable with every donor dollar, and this campaign is no different. Email us any time at or call us toll-free at 1-866-927-2445.

We are committed to ensuring the highest quality of interactions with all of our supporters and the general Canadian public alike, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
