Today is Day 1 of Giving!
Starting today, I will be giving away a variety of goodies and gifts with my “12 Days of Giving – 12 Days of Christmas giveaway” on my Facebook page to help YOU this holiday season, and also help out and spotlight a few LOCAL charities. This giveaway is open to all followers or fans of my Facebook page and you can just click here to “like” the page and follow the contest!
Day 1 of giving is proud to spotlight Children’s Foundation of Guelph for the Charity of The Day!
The Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington is a local organization helping local families. Life can be challenging when there is barely enough money to cover basic human essentials like housing and proper nutrition. For many families in Guelph and Wellington the reality is that they have ‘just barely enough’ to look after their basic needs. During the holiday season, they have the Adopt-A-Family Program which matches donors with families in need in order to make Christmas shine a little brighter. Last year (2018) with the support of a generous community of donors in the Guelph and Wellington area, they were able to provide Christmas gifts and grocery cards for 1,175 families and independent youth.
I was at their warehouse earlier this week and they were able to provide 1222 families this year (2019)!!! All families were adopted with the generosity of our community donors! 🙂
Families are referred to them by social service agencies who have identified they are in need. Adopt-A-Family is about more than gifts under the tree; it’s about providing families with support and hope during the holidays. While children’s wish lists include all the normal gifts that any child would want, the families’ needs very often include basic necessities such as diapers, bedding and winter clothing.
For more detail, to donate, or get involved, please click here or go to their website at https://www.childrensfoundation.org/ Your support of the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington is an investment in the health and future of our community, an investment in brighter futures.
The 12 days of Christmas is starting today, so hopefully I can surprise you in my online community with a little extra something special this Christmas!
Today is the 1st day of giving and one of my lucky followers will win a $25 Home Depot gift card! And, once we get 12 comments on the official post, Children’s Foundation of Guelph will also receive a $50 donation!!
