Thank you to all our participants of the 2010 'Kids Book of Victoria & the North Island"! This year’s book raised over $5,500 for the Help Fill a Dream Foundation (HFAD)!

We look forward to creating the Kids Book of 2011 and helping dreams come true for the brave children of Help Fill a Dream (HFAD).
If you are interested in registering your children for the 2011 book or know someone with some great kids up to the age of 16, we are taking registrations for the 2011 Kids Book! This includes Kids from Victoria and the North Island Area (Comox, Courtenay, and Campbell River etc.)

Jerry Van donates his time each year to take these heartwarming portraits. The families who participate, (children; newborn – 16 years), pay a $75 registration fee to Van’s and 100% of the proceeds are presented to the HFAD at the end of the year when the book is complete. This year you also receive a $50.00 credit towards your first print order that you may use at your first viewing.

Van’s Portraits is looking for everyday kids for the 2011 edition!
