Giving Back

Gift giving has never been so meaningful and has never made such impact. Visit to give a meaningful gift for any occasion. Everyone has someone on their list who is hard to buy for. We'll make it easy and we'll even send the card. If you can’t decide what to pubuy for your loved ones, what to get a co-worker, teachers, or how to simply do something good, this is your opportunity.

Thanks to you

The second annual Because You Care Holiday Catalogue, presented by Colbourne Automotive Group was a huge success. For the second year in a row, hundreds of Cape Bretoners funded health care needs as gifts for their loved ones. Since the beginning last year, more than $108,000 has been raised.  In 2019 alone, 450 gifts were purchased by 225 people raising an incredible $52,085.

Thanks to the generosity of the Colbourne Automotive Group, who sponsored the catalogue and also matched the first $10,000 in gifts, Cape Breton was able to fund essential needs for cancer care, pediatrics, Caleb’s Courage, mental health, Crossroads, priority equipment and hospital staff appreciation.
