Honouring Our Daughter


About Us

The Olive Harper Foundation is a newly founded non-profit charity that raises funds for a variety of pediatric causes through ongoing gift donations and an annual fundraising gala.

In 2017, funds raised are going to support three causes: Camp Erin, Sick Kids’ Hospital for Sick Children – Cardiac Research, and the purchase of Cuddle Cots for our local hospitals.

Our Story

We have two daughters. One here on earth and one in heaven. I’m a Mom of an angel, the greatest tragedy and the greatest honour. We have chosen to share our story because Olive mattered. Through Olive’s story, and in her name, we can make a difference.

“Amber Richardson and Ashley Allinson have turned the tragic loss of their daughter, Olive, into a mission to help others. I would like to commend them for their dedication to this very important and deeply personal cause. In memory of Olive, they are helping to provide hope for other families facing the life-threatening illness or loss of a precious child”

~ Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

“I am proud to say today we are experiencing a shift in how our community cares for and supports families experiencing pregnancy and infant loss. Amber Richardson has been an integral part of this grassroots movement. In addition to raising awareness, she is also dedicated to raising funds in support of other families facing the life-threatening illness or loss of a child.”
