Announcing FESA's Birdies for Kids Participation

Ah, spring! No more snow... Wait, where did that come from? Along with Alberta’s periodic spring snow, this time of year means flowers, showers, and birdies, Shaw Birdies for Kids presented by AltaLink (BFK) to be precise; and like previous years, we are happy to announce that the Further Education Society of Alberta (FESA) is a BFK participating charity for 2022!

For those of you new to the rodeo, BFK is a yearly fundraiser that aims to bring much needed dollars to Calgary youth charities, while providing a world-class professional sporting event accessible to families. Starting in 2013, $2.2 million was raised for southern-Alberta charities. Almost a decade later, BFK has raised over $75 million.

What this means for FESA supporters and donors is that any amount donated between March 1st to August 31st, 2022, each and every donation made will be matched up to 50% by BFK. Every donation you make helps us reach more learners, get more books into kid's hands, and help FESA host more parenting and essential skills programs in Calgary!

One of our most popular programs is the Parent Child Mother Goose (PCMG); PCMG program participant Jaspreet and her daughter joined an Online Parent-Child Mother Goose program led by our facilitator Batista and shared how she felt about the PCMG program in Calgary:
