Project Warmth

November 16, 2010

My morning walk just before sunrise.

I thought I would mention a fabulous cause I friend of mine started here in Toronto a few years ago called, Project Warmth. Project Warmth is “a Toronto-based grassroots initiative, that aims to help families in need by creating beautiful gift packages of gently-used children’s items.These lovely gift packages are then sent out to women in need just before the holiday season, a time that can leave those struggling to make ends meet feel the strain that much more. Click HERE to see a list of ideas if you’d like to lend a hand by making a donation or volunteering your time. Once again I’ve left this until the eleventh hour as the donation deadline is…  this Saturday, November 20th. Ugh, I apologize for leaving things so late. Rest assured the word pronto will be one I hope to use more often in the new year. But, please don’t let my tardiness stop or delay you. Take a a few minutes, now, to roam around your closets, or, shelves, or make a quick stop to the drugstore to purchase some reasonably priced products for baby or mom and let the giving begin. Check out Project Warmth’s website for drop off details or information on how to volunteer on November 26, 27, 28 or 30th.

What better way to kick off the holidays then by making some extra space on your shelves while spreading some kindness to someone in need. I can feel the warmth already.

Here comes the sun getting ready to warm things up a little.
