On December 16, 2020, Canada’s most award-winning commercial printer, CJ Graphics of Mississauga, Ontario, hosted its 13th annual CJ’s Skatepark & Learning Disabilities of Ontario (LDAO) fundraiser. The in-person event went online this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and was hosted by CJ Group of Companies President Jay Mandarino, along with iconic Canadian comedian Colin Mochrie, whose most famous for the hit TV show Whose Line is it? Along with some hilarious skits and many other funny moments, Mochrie shared his own personal story when interviewed by Mandarino.

The event raised $51,000 that will be shared by both charities. Plus, since CJ Graphics didn’t hold its traditional in-person Christmas Party and Fundraiser last year, which normally collected donations of food as well, the company donated $1,000 to The Mississauga Food Bank. If you’d like to make a donation to help others, especially with all the potential mental-heath challenges that children and other youths will have to endure after this pandemic passes, please feel free to donate to the foundation by visiting the CJ’s Skateboard Foundation website.

CJ’s Skateboard Foundation is a registered Canadian and American charity dedicated to the development of all children and youth through the benefits of skateboarding, scooter riding and inline skating, while at the same time making these sports accessible to everyone by:

  1. Preventing youth delinquency, addiction, substance abuse or mental illness through sports or other activities.
  2. Improving and building self-confidence, self-esteem, emotional stability and well being.
  3. Promoting physical activity, fitness and a healthy lifestyle through sports.
  4. Eliminating physical, psychological and financial barriers that prevent youth with special needs from participating in sports or activities – including those with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, Blindness, Vision Impairment, Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, Deafness, Down Syndrome, Dyslexia, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and other learning disabilities, or any other challenge they may have.
