The Farha Foundation is Quebec's leading fundraising organization committed to helping men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS. The events organized by the Farha Foundation also serve to raise public awareness of the AIDS pandemic.

Since 1992, the Farha Foundation has distributed over $8.7 million to some 76 organizations throughout Quebec that provide care and services (housing, medication, food, palliative care, homecare, etc.), as well as AIDS prevention and education programs. An advisory committee determines which organizations the Foundation supports and ensures that the funds are put to the best possible use.

Serving great tea, having a friendly staff and above-and-beyond customer service seemed like a simple idea, but young entrepreneur David Segal and his cousin, retail pioneer Herschel Segal, couldn't find anyone else that was doing it. Therefore, they decided to take matters into their own hands. Today, DAVIDsTEA has over 75 stores across Canada and the US, and they do not plan on stopping any time soon. You can choose from over 150 types of tea, including exclusive blends, limited edition seasonal collections, traditional straight teas and exotic infusions from around the world. With colourful, modern packaging, sleek in-house designed tea accessories and a friendly, welcoming attitude, DAVIDsTEA offers a tea experience that is fun, fresh and inviting.
