Showpass has partnered with Kids Up Front to give back to the community by helping Canadian customers and organizers donate their tickets! Ticket buyers can now put unused tickets to use, and event creators can donate free tickets at ease.

Kids Up Front

Located across Canada, Kids Up Front is a charity organization that distributes donated tickets to kids in need. They have distributed more than 2 million experiences across Canada creating millions of memories. Kids Up Front removes barriers by working with over 300 registered partner agencies to bring FREE experiences to communities across Canada. Distributed tickets range from arts, culture and sporting events that children and their families can enjoy.

“Our programs make it possible for deserving children to cheer on their NHL heroes at their very first hockey game, experience the magic of the curtain rising at a live theatre performance, or enjoy a field trip to a national historic site, which for many, is their very first trip outside of their neighbourhood.” - Kids Up Front
