Eddie's beloved  niece, "Charlie", was the subject of the song "TAKIN' CHARLIE HOME" (see below) included on his self-penned "Hills and Valleys" Souvenir album. Eddie established this fund in her name so as to raise awareness of children in need and it has now become his favorite charity.
A portion of his earnings plus donations received will be dispersed annually to such worthy cause(s) as determined by committee. A previous recipient has been CHEO--The Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

"TAKIN 'CHARLIE HOME" (written by Eddie Francis)
It was spring in Ottawa
And the lilacs were in bloom
As nature weaved its tapestry
Its'fragrance filled the room
Tiny heads in little beds
Just like the birds of spring 
Waiting for the comforting
That loving hands would bring
A little girl was waiting for
The sun to greet the day
Her thoughts were of the life she knew
So many miles away
And conquering the suffering
From a wayward chromosome
A promise made and a debt unpaid
So I'll be takin'Charlie home

Chorus #1

I'll be takin'Charlie home with me tonight
To break her little heart would not be right
Got to show her how I feel
That my love for her is real
So I'll be takin' Charlie home with me tonight.

Life must have its' mysteries
The Lord must have His say
But it's only right to share the plight
Of the children here today
A child should have the right to dream
And see her wedding day                .            .
So I'll accomplish a simple wish
Takin'Charlie home to stay
If you believe in miracles
You' ll  understand this song
It's in the Children's hospital
We see the weak grow strong
Now when I smell the sweet perfume
Of lilacs as I roam
I'll think of spring in Ottawa
And takin'Charlie home
Chorus #2
I'll be takin'Charlie home with me tonight
To break her little heart would not be right
If I care more than I should
Love is seldom understood
So I'll be takin'Charlie home with me tonight
I've got to show her how I feel
That my love for her is real
So I'll be takin'Charlie home with me tonight.
