Teens aged 13 to 17 years old from low income families
Since 1999, Adopt-A-Teen has been providing a Christmas gift to less fortunate Edmonton teenagers. Today, Adopt-A-Teen spreads Christmas cheer to over 8,600 Edmonton teens aged 13-17. With your support, we hope to raise $430,000 to ensure that everyone can share in the spirit of giving this holiday season.
"I am a single mom. I have always been independent and able to give at Christmas, but I lost my job this year. Money is very tight. I did not think I could get my teen-age son a Christmas gift. He told me, 'that's okay mom, we have each other." But of course he was disappointed. I could tell from his eyes.
Then the Adopt-A-Teen gift card arrived in the mail. I have something to give to him. I am in tears of happiness as I write this note.
Thank you. You have brought sunlight into our lives."

"I am blessed by the Adopt-A-Teen gift card you have given me. I bought useful things for me and for my sister, like clothes and games. It is wonderful how you make kids like me happy during this holiday season.
Thank you so much again, especially for the toys I was able to buy for my sister.
She loves them! Merry Christmas!"
- Signed, "a really happy girl."
