The Joy Of Giving During The Holiday Season!

Published on January 10, 2011 by Anne Raymond

From December.....A joy to give back to the community!

What an exciting day! I delivered a huge pile of unwrapped toys to the Etobicoke General Hospital Pediatric unit. The joy of giving brings such meaning especially during the holidays!

I had two occasions recently where clients and friends contributed to the toys that were given. The first was a dinner party that we had where our dear friends gave so willingly to the cause. Their support is so appreciated!

And then I gave a "Learn, Grow, Give" bonus seminar to one of my Mastermind groups on "Maximizing Your Strengths and Fast-Tracking Your Success". In the spirit of the season, I asked everyone to consider bringing an unwrapped toy to the seminar. The generosity was moving.

I was privileged to deliver the toys to Angela Molinari who is the Child Life Expert on the EGH pediatric unit where they will be distributed over the holidays to children that will be spending the holidays in the hospital. It surely will bring a smile to their faces as it will to mine!
