Blippi: The Wonderful World Tour! Partners With Childhood Cancer Canada to Give Comfort to Families in Need
March 6, 2023 (Toronto) Blippi: The Wonderful World Tour! is joining the fight against childhood cancers by partnering with Childhood Cancer Canada (CCC). Blippi “The Wonderful World Tour” has vowed to give a portion of select ticket sales directly to Canada’s leading childhood cancer charity.

Founded in 1987, CCC creates victories for Canadian children with cancer through investment in national, collaborative, lifesaving research, empowering education, and community programs. Innovation Arts and Entertainment, the promoter of Blippi: The Wonderful World Tour! in Canada, has pledged that $5 of all tickets sold through Certifikid and its partners will go to CCC.

“We are proud to partner with Childhood Cancer Canada and support their lifesaving work for families in Canada,” said Adam Epstein, President and CEO of Innovation Arts and Entertainment. “We hope that a day at the theater will provide families with a brief rest and a moment of joy amongst what is a very emotional and stressful time.”
