The spirit of giving

While you're stocking up on all kinds of gifts for our loved ones, don't forget others in need.

All around there are heart-warming displays of generosity...

Two of the hardest-working, class parents are volunteers in my son's grade 3 class. Instead of the traditional teachers' gift, in honour of the teacher, they are co-ordinating a toy drive. Each child can donate a toy for another child living at the Woodgreen Red Door Shelter. What a great way for our children to learn about helping those less fortunate, while honouring their teacher at the same time.

Toys R Us at the Yonge/Eg Centre has a table of toys outside the main entrance with greatly-reduced prices and all proceeds going to the Starlight Foundation. What a great way for to partner with the community to help children. We bought a couple toys and to follow their lead, in turn, we donated them to Toy Mountain.

Have a heart-warming holiday story to share?
