The Windsor Essex Care for Kids Foundation began as a grassroots fundraising campaign in 1997, started by Dr. Joe Galiwango, Bill Micelli and Alan Defoe. The W.E. Care for Kids Campaign was intended to run for one full year to support the purchase of much needed paediatric equipment for local hospitals. The Founders quickly realized that there was a greater need for paediatric funding in the Windsor Essex Community and made the decision to the run the W.E. Care for Kids Campaign annually.
On April 8th 2005, the Windsor Essex Care for Kids Foundation was granted charitable status by the Canada Revenue Agency – changing W.E. Care for Kids from an annual fundraising Campaign to a recognized Foundation. Since its humble beginnings in 1997, W.E. Care for Kids is now recognized as a leader in paediatric fundraising in Windsor Essex County and has raised $6.5 million in support of local paediatric health care programs.
