At MyLens.ca, our core values are built around giving back to our employees, customers, and communities. From the very beginning, our owners decided that we would donate proceeds of each sale to organizations that are close to their hearts due to personal life experiences.
We proudly donate 5% of each sale to the Canadian Mental Health Association or the Children’s Heart Network.
Canadian Mental Health Association
We are proud to support the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). Founded in 1918, the CMHA is the most established, most extensive community mental health organization in Canada. Through a presence in more than 330 communities across every province and one territory, CMHA provides advocacy, programs and resources that help to prevent mental health problems and illnesses, support recovery and resilience, and enable all Canadians to flourish and thrive.
Children's Heart Network
One baby out of every 100 is born with heart disease. Approximately half of these children will require medical intervention. We are proud to support the Children’s Heart Network, a B.C. provincial non-profit organization in offering support, information, and education to families, children, and youth who are living with acquired or congenital heart disease (CHD). The Children's Heart Network helps families affected so they don't have to face the journey alone.
How are the donations made?
With each purchase, 5% of the order total is set aside towards our donation amount for each organization. At the end of each calendar year, these amounts are donated.
We also want you to be a part of the decision making! At the time of your purchase, you get to choose which cause you would like us to contribute the 5% donation to. Don't worry if you're uncertain on which cause to donate to. At the end of the year, we will equally distribute any undecided donations to each organization.
