Tix for Kids*

Our Goal

Locally, Edmonton has a goal 30,000 tickets of which 19,638 has been distributed.

Tickets raised:

If you have tickets to a kid- friendly event that you can’t use or would like to donate, let us get them into the hands of kids who can! We are partnered with over 200 child serving agencies around our community who distribute your unused tickets to kids and their families that use their services.

We accept all different types of tickets for this program! We love to distribute tickets for the NHL, the CFL, musical shows, K-Days, concerts, any tickets to an event that you can think of that is kids-friendly, we can place.

Your donated tickets will create special life changing opportunities for these children and their families, giving them a place to bond and have fun! Through the Tix for Kids program, we have seen children build confidence and self-esteem, and family relationships strengthen. We have also seen new immigrants integrating and feeling welcome and excited to participate in Canadian culture and society.

It may not seem like much, but with our dynamic network of education, health, and child and family services we are able to connect your donations with deserving children to provide them with exciting and memorable experienced and the chance to just be a kid!


Thank you so much for offering us the tickets to have this wonderful experience of Canadian Music Show.

It was so fun and so interesting for us as an immigrant family. We felt well connected with local culture and felt the passion that performers showed. Really amazing experience!

Leila, Ticket Recipient

We came from Mexico 3 years ago and we have never been to a Senators game before. For my kids it was a BIG surprise and joy. We were able to spend family time and have fun. We felt belonging to the Ottawa crowd and were proud to see the Senators won the match.

Nery, Mom and Ticket Recipient

It was quite a joy to bring these young people to their first game. I will never forget it but to watch the happiness they all got to experience last night - it was one of the best moments of my life! We all appreciate what Kids Up Front is doing and hope to have future opportunities.
