Our 2024 Singing Valentines Fundraiser Was Our Most Successful Yet!

We are thrilled to announce that we’ve had our most successful Singing Valentines Fundraiser yet. Thanks to some very generous additional donations we have raised $1,300 for A Way Home Kamloops after expenses! A Way Home Kamloops Society supports youth with housing and programming; the money raised from the Singing Valentines will go directly to youth in our community. Because of your support, youth who may otherwise be homeless will be connected with housing, training, education, financial supports, health and mental health resources, and other supports they need to lead full and healthy lives.

Traveling across Kamloops we made 32 deliveries this year: 8 Downtown, 6 in Sahali, 5 in Westsyde, 3 in Aberdeen, 2 each in North Kamloops, Brocklehurst, & the Mt. Paul Industrial Area, and 1 each in Valleyview, Juniper Ridge, Bachelor Heights, & Pineview. It is always an incredible privilege and pleasure to be entrusted with delivering messages of love and caring throughout the city. We share in beautiful moments, seeing the full emotional impact of the delivery and telling people they are loved, cherished, respected, and valued. We also enjoy watching people get epically embarrassed, join in on the song, and all the myriad of other reactions. And, we’re doing it all for a great cause every year. We want to thank everyone who supported our fundraiser by ordering a Singing Valentine delivery. We also want to thank our friends at Newell Flower Shop for always providing us with top-quality and beautiful carnations to give out, our wonderful significant others for being so supportive of us spending the day singing love songs to other people, and of course our respective employers for letting us take the day off to drive all over Kamloops like well-dressed manic cupids.

We can’t wait to do it all again next year! If you would like to suggest a local charity to be the recipient of our 2024 Singing Valentines, please fill out the nomination form. We greatly appreciate the suggestions – it makes it so much easier to compile a list of great options to pick from each year.
