Welcome to our Celebrate The Child website!
In loving memory of our son, Jonah, we created an annual celebration around his birthday, June 19th, to ‘celebrate the child in all of us’. In 2008, the first year of our celebration, we built a tile mosaic of a chameleon with his grade one class and his sister’s grade four class. It lies between two big chestnut trees at the school where Jonah spent much of his time collecting chestnuts, digging for dinosaur bones, and looking for lizards. We also celebrated the joy of youth and play by having an extended recess in his honour and encouraged everyone, students and teachers, to play together. The following year we carried on this theme with a magic show to raise money for a children’s charity. This event has now become an annual tradition. With the help of everyone involved, it’s a magical evening of love, laughter and hope.
We hope you can join us for our tenth annual show, which will be held on Saturday, June 16th, 2018! This year we will be supporting the amazing organization We Charities and as well continue our fund at the Vancouver Foundation. Thank you all for your generous support of a cause that is so dear to our hearts.
Emma, Jeff and Hannah Christensen
