Father’s Day is just around the corner, a day when we celebrate the important role that male-identifying role models play in our lives. Whether they’re teaching us basic life skills, imparting important values, or just spending quality time with us, these fathers and father-figures often have a big impact on who we are as children and the people we develop in to as adults.

When we build fathers up, the whole family benefits. Children of fathers who are highly involved in their lives display higher levels of self-confidence and self-control, are less likely to engage in risky behaviours as teens, and may be less prone to depression (source). When fathers have a positive relationship with their children, kids display increased problem-solving ability, better school achievement, and more empathy, as well as decreased violence and aggression (source). The effects of this positive role-modeling, or lack of it, is often felt for multiple generations.

Whether it’s through our Odyssey program for grade six boys, our Supermen of Bowness program for male caregivers and their children, our conversation group for older adult men, or one of our other 40 programs, at carya we work every day to help men and boys realize their potential. This allows them to positively impact their children, grandchildren, families, and the communities where they live. You can help us continue this work by donating to carya today.

This Father’s Day, we’re fortunate to have the support of Adesso Man. Adesso Man is a Calgary-based men’s lifestyle brand that specializes in unique and functional products characterized by bold colours and European inspired designs. They’re also a community-minded company that values giving back. If you’re looking for a special gift for a father in your life, and want to support a locally owned shop, Adesso Man is the place to go!

Purchase anything from Adesso Man for the father or father figure in your life (or buy something for yourself!) between now and June 21st, and you’ll be helping carya support men and boys to be their best. 10% of all proceeds from sales at Adesso Man during this time will go directly back to carya programs that help fathers, sons, grandfathers, and father figures build self-esteem and resilience, and strengthen the relationships with their families and support networks.
