About Pennies for Pain
Pennies for Pain, our national fundraising and awareness campaign, began in 2009. This campaign serves to raise funds for our vital pain education programs and to heighten awareness of pain issues in Canada. Chronic pain can be devastating, debilitating, demoralizing and sometimes deadly. It destroys lives and families. Because chronic pain is misunderstood, undertreated and undermanaged, Canadians suffer needlessly.
The fundraising focus of the campaign is to ask people to contribute what they can. They may literally save their pennies or raid their piggy banks. This idea is reflected in the design of the logo. If each of the six million Canadians with pain donated one penny for pain, think of the great work that will be accomplished!
