Christmas is less than 100 days away. Yes, you read that correctly!
In just two short months the carols will be all over the radio stations, lights will be up on the rooftops and malls will be filled to the brim with people spending way too much money on stuff they don’t need.
Ugh malls. Doesn’t the thought of going to a crowded mall with an even more crowded parking lot seem like the last thing you want to do right about now?
This holiday season you can avoid all of that and do your shopping from the comfort of your home, in your pyjamas! No, we’re not talking about Amazon, but a different type of shopping that will make your heart feel good and help those who could use a boost this Christmas.
Gifts from the Heart is a campaign that makes gift giving easy and rewarding, while helping the residents of Haliburton County. No matter how big or how small, your donation is very much appreciated and put to good use.
Last year 7,300 healthy meals were given to people in the community, which was possible through fundraising support.
According to a social survey done by Stats Canada, 91% of donors said their reason for donating was because they felt compassion towards people in need. Other reasons cited for donating included the idea of helping a cause in which they personally believed in and wanting to make a contribution to their community.
By supporting Gifts from the Heart you are playing a part in continuing the good work done by SIRCH Community Services. You are helping those in need and supporting a cause that is worth believing in.
Now doesn’t that sound better than navigating a crowded mall parking lot?
