The Give | YOU’RE ONE amazing COOKIE


Your support of Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Day has us grinning from ear to ear.

No doubt you’ve seen their happy little faces... smile cookies. Every year, local Tim Hortons stores donate 100% of the proceeds from smile cookie sales to charities and community organizations.

First cooked up in 1996 to raise funds for a hospital in Ontario, the idea soon spread to all parts of Canada. Fast forward to today—over 625 organizations benefit from smile cookie sales. And this year, Saint John Regional Hospital was a lucky recipient!

Thanks to people like you who purchased Smile Cookies this year, you helped deliver a whopping $62,442.04 cheque to The Give—Robotic Assisted Surgery.
