Coming this Spring: National Heroes Video Project

The Bhayana Family Foundation, in partnership with the United Ways from Greater Toronto,  Lower Mainland (Vancouver) and Halifax, and Charity Village, will be launching a video series that showcases the achievements of frontline staff and the impact they have on people in their communities.

In the three videos produced to date, the cameras capture the frontline staff in action, recreating their Bhayana Family Foundation/United Way Award-winning interventions. The videos also document the impact they had on their clients.

“We wanted to bring the work of these invisible heroes to life with a much larger audience, to inspire the community with their passion, ingenuity and commitment. These are real people making a difference and they should be celebrated,” said Raksha M. Bhayana, Co-Founder and CEO of the Bhayana Family Foundation.

The videos feature vignettes from 360°kids in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Collingwood Neighbourhood House, Vancouver, British Columbia, and The Club Inclusion, Halifax Nova Scotia. They are like Anthems to the Invisible Heroes!

The videos will be available through social media and on the websites of all the project partners including United Way Greater Toronto, United Way Lower Mainland, United Way Halifax, the Bhayana Family Foundation and Charity Village. Costs for the videos were sponsored by United Way Greater Toronto, Gluskin Sheff, Crowe and Soberman and in kind by Charity Village.

Over the past ten years, the Bhayana Family Foundation has created partnerships with United Ways across Canada to recognize the extraordinary work done by the frontline staff of their funded agencies. As of June 2018, the United Ways in conjunction with the Foundation have recognized close to 900 individuals through high-profile Award ceremonies that celebrate their outstanding achievements.
