What are we doing this year?
During this time of Covid-19 the hospital’s NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) has identified a need for infant ventilators. All funds collected this year will go towards purchasing one of these units.
Why do we run this charity?
On November 12, 2015, at 7 ½ months in utero, my wife and I watched our first Son, William Fox die. William was diagnosed with two severe brain hemorrhages at six months, and after a month of monitoring, testing, and attempts to lessen/repair the severity of the bleeds his fight ended. I will not go into detail, but I will say that what we experienced leading up to, during, and after William’s death, was worse than can be possibly imagined. The loss of William has been devastating, altering every single part of our lives, forever. Wolfhill Entertainment evolved from an attempt to add a sliver of positivity back into our lives through Role Playing Games.
Success of past years
In 2017 my wife and I started fundraising for McMaster Children’s Hospital during November in honour of William Fox. In the first year we collected $1329.59CAD through my wife’s home business https://www.facebook.com/thelittleorangefoxshop/ to pay for a private room at the hospital for any person experiencing the loss of a child. We were forced to stay in the hospitals maternity ward for a few days after William’s death, and being in a room next to new parents with crying babies was heartbreaking. We wanted to ensure that other people experiencing loss would be spared the same experience. In 2018, we collected $1600.00CAD worth of children’s toys, which were donated to the hospital to help families who had to spend the holidays in the hospital. In 2019 we collected $1734.88CAD towards the purchase of a syringe infusion pump used to administer very tiny amounts of medicine accurately to newborns.
Our family does not profit from this charitable venture in any capacity. We do not ask for nor receive a charitable receipt for tax purposes. The coordinator of the hospitals charities will be asked to provide an official total of donations. A summary report from drivethrurpg.com will also be posted on https://www.facebook.com/wolfhillentertainment/ to show that all funds raised have been donated to the appropriate location. We believe that all charities should be transparent and that ALL funds donated should go to helping those who need it.
