Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this important event.

We were thrilled to come together to celebrate humanity’s vast potential to create The World That’s Possible and we couldn’t have done it without you.

You can check out the photos of so many memorable moments here.


Join us on December 5th for THE WORLD THAT'S POSSIBLE, an exclusive gala evening to celebrate humanity’s vast potential, stir the imagination, and inspire us to create the world that’s possible.


Proceeds from this unforgettable night of gourmet international cuisine, prepared by Chef Mark McEwan and inspired by the regions where War Child works, world-class entertainment, storytelling, and philanthropy will support children living with war.

War Child's work is needed now more than ever before. Funds raised will provide conflict-affected children and families with essential programs that give them the chance to escape cycles of violence and poverty and create a brighter future for themselves and their communities.

War Child

War Child is an acclaimed humanitarian organization that has been protecting children from the brutal impact of war and violence for the past 20 years.

Using a bold, community-driven approach, War Child delivers programs that give children the best chance of overcoming the challenges of war and growing up to see a brighter future. War Child makes it possible for children to get back to school, protects their rights, and gives their families the tools they need to escape poverty. This is accomplished with a long-term focus, 99% local staff, and by investing approximately 90% of every dollar into our overseas programming. War Child Canada supports over 600,000 conflict-affected people every year.
