This year the CBC Employees’ Charity Appeal will be presenting the 17th Annual CBC Charity Craft supporting UNICEF on Nov. 30th. In honour of Dec. 1, World HIV/AIDS Day, the 17th Annual CBC Charity Craft sale will be donating all proceeds from vendor fees and day of donations directly to Child Protection around the world, which includes HIV testing, and prevention in Africa and other nations for mothers, babies and children.

The event will be held at the atrium of the CBC building at 250 Front St. W. (Front & John St.) from 8:30am to 5:30pm. Admission is free. There are over 60 vendors participating in 12 different categories ranging from art to Christmas to Kids and Knitting. With this amazing array of vendors, this show promises to be a good one. How great is it to be able to support a great charity AND get a little Christmas shopping done.

Kynk Naturals, Echoes in the Attic, Torched Studio, Suzie Saxx, Curious Oddities, Odalis Petit Menagerie, and Fumiko Maehara are some of the high calibre vendors that will be selling their wares at the show. You should be able to find something for everyone on your list.

The CBC Employees' Charity Appeal has been supporting charities for decades. It is run by a committee of volunteers of both current and retired employees of the CBC, it's focus is to raise money from CBC employees. The CBC has many of it's own initiatives, but the CBC Employees Charity Appeal is separate from that, although supported by CBC management.
