“Have you ever attended a Make Believe Tea? It’s something quite different, we think you’ll agree. You put on the kettle and put up your feet. Relax and be comfy, you’re in for a treat. But if you would rather, then with friends do gather."
VON invites you to a Make Believe Tea Party to celebrate 116+ years of service to your community and hundreds like it across Canada.
You can host an actual tea party and enjoy a cup of tea with friends and family.
Or you can raise funds to support VON's Make Believe Tea via our online fundraising tool. To register or support someone else, choose an option from the menu on the left.
VON assists people by allowing them to return home from the hospital sooner. We help keep patients in their homes as long as possible, to live independently, or to die with dignity. Our 5,000 staff and 9,000 volunteers work in communities across the country making an important impact on the lives and health of Canadians. Our clients might have chronic illness, be isolated, new to Canada or in a difficult time with no family close by – but they all become part of the VON family.
We also have another reason to celebrate! In November, the Alberta Legislature plans to refurbish its well known Famous Five display: the five Canadian women who in 1929 helped ensure that women are recognized as persons under Canadian law. Two of these famous suffragettes - Nellie McClung and Henrietta Edwards - helped found VON in 1897!
Thank you for attending our Make Believe Tea!
