Tim Hortons annual Smile Cookie campaign returns from September 17 to September 23, supporting local charities and organizations in communities across the country. For one week only, Tim Hortons guests will be able to purchase the restaurant’s signature chocolate chunk cookies, decorated with blue eyes and a cheerful pink smile, for $1 (plus tax) at participating restaurants. The full $1 from each Smile Cookie will be donated by Tim Hortons restaurant owners to a local charity, hospital or community program that they have selected. Last year, the campaign raised over $6.5 million. Examples of 2018 charities the Smile Cookie fundraiser will support include The Snowsuit Fund in Ottawa, Children’s Wish in Montreal and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation in Vancouver.
Sharing smiles across Canada since 1996, the fundraiser first launched to raise funds for the Hamilton Children’s Hospital in Ontario. The arrival of the blue eyes and pink frosted smile has grown to become a beloved annual fundraising initiative supporting over 500 charities and organizations, and an iconic Canadian symbol of Tim Hortons guests and restaurant owners’ commitment to strengthening their communities. For the first time, the Smile Cookie campaign will now be celebrated globally with many Tim Hortons locations participating around the world including the US, Mexico, the UK, Philippines and the UAE.
