Last year when the floods hit Calgary, it had an adverse affect on a lot of charities. It was fantastic to see so many groups and people pull together and get our winderful city through that difficult time, however some charities that normally depended on the generousity of these group were left we a fraction of what they would normally receive as most companies and groups had donated hevialy into flood relief and have very little left over to donate to thier regular charities. It was then that we saw the opportunity to help out, we decided on the Magic of Christmas. Everything about this wonderful charity aligned with our own reasons for giving back to the community.
With that said we moved into action and in a very short period of time we brought together the Giving Tree promotion and Toy Drive. It was a simple idea, collect toys from our patrons, suppliers and Calgarians in general and then reward them for doing so with a chance to win from the Giving Tree. It ended up being a fantatic little promotion given the amount of time we had to turn things around. So when it came time for this year, we knew its was a no brainer only this time we would plan it right and see if we could grow it.
We’re excited to annouce that we have indeed up the prizes, including a 1 year lease on a Kia Soul EX courtsey of Northland kia. In addition we have bigger prizes to ive away this year with the giving tree! We feel our timing couldn’t be better as our friends at the Magic of Christmas are looking for all the help they can get this year.
So we are asking you Calgary, to help us step up and make a difference to families in your city this season. You can find out more about our toy drive and the Giving Tree here.
