About Us

In January of 2010, the Hockey Players Union was founded in Toronto, Ontario. The idea for the organization came from the love of the game and wanting to get as many kids started in hockey as possible. Knowing the influence the game has on our lives both on and off the ice, HPU developed the ‘Hockey Lace Wristy’ to raise funds for underprivileged children wanting to play hockey by providing them with equipment if needed and paying for a portion of their registration fees. For one reason or another, many families can’t support having their child or children involved in hockey and that shouldn’t stop the positive influence of the game from reaching those children. Using the funds raised from our products being sold all across North America, as a team, we can provide an opening for everyone to participate in the great frozen game.  The difference we can make will not only affect individuals, but families and communities with the optimistic realization that the lives of these children will be changed forever.
“Hockey is an influence that develops into a greater life calling”
 

Where the proceeds are donated

The Hockey Players Union donates 25¢ from every hockey lace wristy sold on our website. We also donate 10¢ from every product sold in stores or elsewhere. Our focus has always been to raise funds for underprivileged children wanting to play hockey in North America. Furthermore, we always attempt to direct the funds back into the communities where the products were purchased. We obviously need a minimum amount of bracelets sold in a particular City or Town to be able to do this. All funds that can’t be distributed back into those communities, will be donated towards power of sport programs that help underprivileged children get into hockey. In addition, we support many youth hockey programs and sponsor many campaigns.

Our organization is not a registered non-profit at this time although we hope to begin the Hockey Players Union foundation in the near future. We’re excited about the potential. We donate funds yearly during hockey registration season to help as many children in North America as possible. We also help hundreds of sports teams yearly with their fundraising efforts, if your interested in using our products for fundraising, contact us for details. We’re here to help. Thank you for supporting our cause.
