    Why:            Every year, the staff of all the Sears stores in Quebec
                    support Opération Enfant Soleil by working tirelessly to
                    collect indispensable funds to help sick children. Sales
                    of tickets for Maison Enfant Soleil , sales of stuffed
                    animals and candy, and the organization of various
                    fundraising events are just some of the examples of
                    activities organized by the Sears team, focused
                    specifically on helping sick children in Quebec overcome
                    their health problems.

                    Since the year 2000, Sears has collected more than
                    $5 million dollars for Opération Enfant Soleil. In 2007
                    alone, $900,000 was handed over during the Opération
                    Enfant Soleil telethon.
