Tavares is currently out injured with a concussion and knee injury suffered in Game 1 of the team's playoff series with the Montreal Canadiens. He's already been ruled out for the duration of that series, which Toronto currently leads 3-1.

In the wake of his injury, the John Tavares Foundation—which he founded with his wife Aryne and works to support children and families across Canada—received a number of donations.

Now, the Maple Leafs captain is looking to reciprocate and double the impact of donations to help children in need around Canada.
