ONEXONE is a non-profit foundation committed to improving the lives of children in Canada, the United States, Haiti, and around the world. Founded in 2005, ONEXONE was created on the principles that every life is infinitely precious and that each person can make a profound difference in someone else’s life one by one. ONEXONE’S mission is to help the most vulnerable members of society: children in need.
Last year, ONEXONE raised over $13M in donations and supplies. Ninety-five percent of the funds raised were given directly to programs and projects that give children access to five fundamental pillars – water, food, healthcare, education and play.
