Michael Bublé: A Class Unto His Own

August 23, 2010 at 10:00 am 2 comments

Michael Bublé wrapped up his sold-out 12-date Canadian concert tour, Crazy Love. His last show was in Vancouver, where he announced to his hometown audience that all profits from the show would go to BC Children’s Hospital Foundation’s Campaign for BC Children. Michael? You’ve left us speechless,

The Campaign for BC Children is a $200-million initiative to support the construction of a new BC Children’s Hospital and to enhance medical services for children throughout the province. And if you were lucky enough to attend the concert, you would have heard Bublé speak to the campaign:

“They are really inspirational people, and the doctors and nurses who care for them are amazing. But, when you’re in the hospital, you can really understand the need for a new building.”

Michael Bublé has been a supporter of BC Children’s Hospital for many years now. He makes frequent, quiet visits to meet with young patients and their families. In 2008 he took on the role of Ambassador to the Campaign for BC Children and performed for over 800 people at the Bublé Gala, which raised over $2.2 million for the campaign. He’s also participated in public service announcements for the hospital and has lent his songs Home and Everything to the campaign. Michael is not only a superhero but a superb example of someone who gives back, even when they’ve reached heights like Michael has in his career.

The Campaign for BC Children is calling on British Columbians to “Be a Superhero” by making a donation to the hospital. Donations can be made online at www.beasuperhero.ca. More information on the campaign and its priorities is available at www.beasuperhero.ca.

    Thank you Michael Buble!!! I was at the concert when he made that announcement and was almost brought to tears. I run the childrun every year and that’s as much as I can do and it makes me so happy that someone who can do so much more is! I am an even bigger fan than I was before. Michael Buble is a Superhero!

      Thanks K Mair for your comment!

      Michael is a good friend to the Hospital and a great humanitarian. So exciting you got to be at the concert to hear his announcement firsthand. Thanks for all your support; we look forward to seeing you at ChildRun again next year!
