Group: Paje Pokjowy | Location: Niagara Region, ON, Canada
Thank you SO much for visiting Friends with Hearts Niagara and for your interest in showing support for this amazing movement! I can’t wait to share this experience with everyone interested!
My name is Paje Pokjowy and I am honoured to bring FWH to our region. Living in Niagara my whole life, I’ve come to realize just how close we are as a community. I wanted to bring FWH to the region because I know first hand what it’s like to grow up in a family who couldn’t always afford to have a glorious Christmas.
Now that I’m an adult, a mother and a small business owner, I believe that it’s our role to help those who are going over their own speed bumps during a time when they need it most.
Through your donations and time volunteered to Friends with Hearts, my goal is to sponsor as many families as possible and give them the magical Christmas they deserve! Let’s do this!

How to join the group and how to donate
How can I donate?
I can accept donations in various forms. You can give me money personally by cash or cheque, or you can use an email transfer. If sending money via email, please send it to the email listed below in the Email Transfer section.
Do I need a PayPal account in order to donate?
No. One of many reasons we love using PayPal is because you don’t need a PayPal account to donate. When you click on the ‘donate’ button at the bottom of this page, you will be re-directed to another page where you enter the amount you wish to donate and then you can either log in to your PayPal account or proceed with a one-time credit card transaction by clicking on the “CONTINUE” link under the Don’t have a PayPal account? section.
PayPal fee info.
PayPal deducts a 2.9% administrative fee + $0.30 transaction fee on all donations. For example:
$25.00 = $23.97
$50.00 = $48.25
$75.00 = $72.52
$100.00 = $96.80
Is Friends With Hearts a charity?
No, FWH is not a registered charity nor does the group have to be. We work with local charities, non-profit organizations, schools, and churches to support their holiday giving programs. We advocate that 100% of our funding goes toward the families – to include gifts, gift cards, food, cards and wrapping paper.
