Christmas is a time for giving!
Blog by Bettina Reid | November 21st, 2012
Once again it is that time of year, a time to give and help bring smiles to children and families on Christmas day! For the 4th year in a row I am proud that our office will once again be supporting the Surrey and Langley Christmas Bureaus by sponsoring 3-4 families and helping to bring Christmas cheer to families in need.
As a child, my family fell into hard times a couple times and thanks to the community, they helped to bring the Spirit of Christmas to my family. I was a teenager at the time and had the pleasure of seeing the joy that was brought to my siblings faces when they were able to open a gift on Christmas morning. It si for this reason that I look forward to giving back each year to help bring that joy to children in my community.
Even if you cannot afford to give you can volunteer your time. I have always said "Every little bit counts" no matter how big or small, whether it is a small toy, a few dollars or your gift of time to help those in need....every little bit counts! Be sure to give this Holiday season and help to make this Christmas bright for a child in need.
