THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
Bonheur Timepieces are conceived with a dream of making a difference. We started early to build
relationships with people that had the experience, knowledge and passion to change the world.
decided to partner with five registered charities that we felt were in
line with our hearts. That ideology gave birth to #bonheur5stars. Every watch sold empowers five registered charities: to feed a hungry child, assist women in crisis, save an
animal, plant a tree and provide clean drinking water. We share our profits based on our online sales. Bold dreams today are happy realities of tomorrow. Thank you from the bottom of our
1. PLAN CANADA
Plan is a
global movement for change, mobilizing millions of people around the world to
support social justice for children in developing countries. Founded in 1937, we are one of the world’s oldest
and largest international development agencies, working in partnership with
millions of people around the world to end global poverty. Not for profit,

52 developing countries across Africa, Asia and the Americas. We give children,
families and communities the tools they need to break the cycle of poverty and
begin the cycle of progress by creating sustainable solutions for
improving their own lives.

the organization behind Because I am a Girl, a global initiative to end gender
inequality, promote girls’ rights and lift millions of girls – and everyone
around them – out of poverty
2. SAMARITAN'S PURSE
Samaritan’s Purse is a Christian relief and
development organization that takes its name from Jesus Christ’s story in the
Bible of the Good Samaritan. In Luke 10, Jesus tells of a man from Samaria who
finds a Jewish man robbed and beaten at the side of the road, in desperate need
Like that Good Samaritan, Samaritan’s Purse
provides aid to hurting people—victims of war, disease, disaster, poverty,
famine, and persecution. We do it regardless of their religious faith, race,
gender, or socio-economic standing. We usually partner with local churches,
just as the Good Samaritan partnered with the innkeeper. And we continue to
nurture that partnership, and monitor the effectiveness of our work, just as
the Samaritan arranged with the innkeeper.
Samaritan’s Purse Canada has been doing
essential relief and development work in Jesus’ Name all around the world since
Our Emergency Disaster Relief programs provide
urgently needed assistance including food, water, and temporary shelter. We
meet critical needs and give people a chance to rebuild their lives here in
Canada and around the world.
Through Community Development and Vocational
Programs, we help people break the cycle of poverty and exploitation—giving
them hope for a better tomorrow. Through education, shelter, and long-term care
projects, we provide help and joy to vulnerable children.
We also reach out to children through our annual
Operation Christmas Child program that collects gift-filled shoeboxes from
caring donors and distributes them to struggling kids in the developing world.
The program has brought joy—and a powerful message of hope—to more than 103 million
children so far.
Through our Medical Projects, we provide quality
health care in the name of the Great Physician (a description often used for
Jesus). We also send medical and dental personnel to help in countries
worldwide. And through our Teams program, we give servant-minded Canadians the
opportunity to work alongside Samaritan's Purse on a Mission, Relief or Youth
Through our Water Projects, we are providing
life-saving clean water and essential health and hygiene training to hundreds
of thousands of people in the developing world.
All of this much-needed effort enables us to be
modern-day Good Samaritans—and often earns us opportunities to achieve our
ultimate goal, which is to share our faith in Jesus. We hope you will join us
in this exciting work

and children escape violence and rebuild their lives. We don’t just heal wounds

4. SPCA & HUMANE SOCIETY
Through its province-wide network of 50 plus
Communities, the Ontario SPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals) is one of the largest, most responsive animal welfare organizations in
the country, providing care and shelter for tens of thousands of animals every
As a non-profit charitable organization, the Ontario
SPCA is unique amongst animal welfare organizations in Ontario: the Ontario
SPCA Act mandates the Society to enforce animal cruelty laws and provides
Ontario SPCA Community investigators with police powers to do so.
For over a century the Ontario SPCA has provided
province-wide leadership on matters relating to the prevention of cruelty to
animals and the promotion of animal welfare, and worked with its Communities to
encourage humane and suitable animal care; call attention to unacceptable
practices that harm animals; investigate cruelty complaints; carry out rescues;
bring perpetrators of cruelty to court; advocate for humane laws; and provide
care to all animals in need.
The Society's programs and services include: Cruelty Investigations, Rescue & Relief Services, Emergency Rescue and
and Adoptions, Government
and Industry Advocacy, Humane Education, Spay/Neuter Services, Reuniting Lost Pets
with their Owners
These are exciting times for the Ontario SPCA and all
people who care about animals. As animal welfare issues take a greater place in
the consciousness of our communities and legislatures, the Society's
opportunities to effect meaningful change - and yours - increase dramatically. Working together we can make a difference in the
lives of countless animals in need.
5. PLANT A BILLION TREES
facing a perfect storm of threats. Infestations of diseases and invasive pests
like the Emerald Ash Borer are killing tens of thousands of acres of trees
nationally. Increased development is splitting once-vast forests into small
fragments, and a history of suppressing natural fires has created unhealthy
stands of forests. Additionally, climate change is altering the size and growth
patterns of forests.
Forests Naturally filter air. Forests are the
lungs of the Earth: they absorb and filter toxins from the air and produce
clean oxygen for all life to breathe.
Forests Regulate the
Global Climate. Forests hold vast amounts of carbon dioxide and act as a
cooling system for the Earth; they stabilize the global climate and fight
climate change. Forests are essential to the livelihood and cultures of people
around the world, and are home to 80 percent of the Earth’s land-based plants
and animals. One gift can plant roots for tomorrow. Your donation can turn the tide of deforestation and
plant the roots for tomorrow. You’ll do more than put a seed in the
ground — you’ll make sure these forests can survive for future
generations. This year, help us raise $123 million for the Plant A
Billion Trees campaign.
