World Vision Logo

As artists, we wield tremendous influence in our culture. Plato rightly feared the arts’ ability to shape thought and sway the affection of society. When we harness the power of our public voice to speak out as advocates, we pierce the consciences of good men and women. We are proud to join forces with artists who are willing to use their influence and platform to tell the stories of those whose voices might never be heard... the poor, the marginalized, and the oppressed living in impoverished communities around the world.


Leland Klassen

Who is Leland Klassen?

"I love making people laugh and giving people hope. World Vision helps me with that."

From the beginning, Leland’s act was squeaky clean, despite what audiences wanted. Over the last 16 years, taking the road less traveled in the comedy world, he has become recognized as Canada’s premier clean comedian.

With his unique intelligence and wit, Leland has carved a niche for himself in the world of entertainment, being part of the Halifax Comedy Fest, Just for Laughs in Montreal, and many others. His compassion for children has drawn him to partnering with World Vision Canada in serving the world’s most vulnerable children.

Help Leland Klassen Sponsor Children

When you sponsor a child, you help break the cycle of poverty by providing a child and their community with life-saving necessities. Canadians have been partnering with World Vision for 60 years, because they've discovered that sponsorship works. With your help, we partner with the child, their family, neighbours and local leaders to transform a struggling community into one that is thriving. World Vision’s programs focus on Food, Education, Health, Clean water, Child Protection and other vital areas which improve the lives of children and their community.
