Kinetic participates in Festival of Trees for BC Children’s Hospital

This November, our Kinetic team put on their tree decorating hats in support of BC Children’s Hospital. For the last 27 years, the Festival of Trees is the unofficial kick-off to the holiday season in Victoria. This year the event is raising money for Mental Health programs at BC Children’s Hospital. 
Bring your family and friends to see the lush forest of one-of-a-kind trees in the Bay Centre that are on display until January 4th 2022. You can find Kinetic’s tree on the third level across from Urban Planet. Make sure you check out our hand-crafted ornaments that were made and painted by our Kinetic team and their families!

BC Children’s Hospital is focused on treating the whole child – physically and emotionally. Evidence is emerging that practicing mindfulness helps youth increase resiliency and helps them better cope with chronic illness, pain, psychological distress and other health challenges. The Centre for Mindfulness is a leader in mindfulness-based interventions. The aim of mindfulness is to help patients and families learn ways to focus and calm their minds and live in the present moment with compassion for themselves. This will help them better manage difficult thoughts and feelings which can play an important role in their healing journey. Mindfulness skills have been shown to help people cope with chronic stress, pain and mood symptoms. The Centre for Mindfulness team would like to make a positive difference in the lives of more kids and families from across the province.
