#003 Giving Tuesday 2023 Success!

🥳 Happy New Year! Wishing you all the best for a bright and joyful year ahead.

You showed up for #GivingTuesday! We are so proud!

We have some exciting news to share – your generosity on Giving Tuesday went above and beyond! While our initial goal was to sponsor 10 Heirloom Stockings, thanks to your incredible support, we actually surpassed that by 30%, filling a total of 13 stockings with hope and holiday cheer for families in the Greater Toronto Area through Habitat for Humanity ReStore locations!

Your incredible $260 in donations, fuelled by every warm wish and kind heart, will be channeled directly to Habitat for Humanity. Every penny goes towards building stronger communities by providing safe and affordable housing for families in need. That's a gift that truly keeps on giving!

Here's how your generosity made a difference:

  • 13 Stockings Overflowing with Joy: Each handcrafted stocking, filled with your kindness and festive spirit, is on its way to brighten a family's holiday season.
  • Building Brighter Futures: Your contributions directly support Habitat for Humanity's mission of building a brighter future for GTA families.
  • Community Spirit Sparked: Your giving spirit, exceeding our initial goal and setting a new record, is an inspiration to us all!

While we didn't hit our fundraising target in its entirety, we're immensely grateful for every single donation. You've proven that generosity, regardless of size, can create a powerful ripple effect of hope and positive change.

Let's carry this spirit of giving forward, not just during the holidays, but throughout the year. Together, we can make an even bigger impact than ever before.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for making a difference!

P.S. Remember, each $20 you donated sponsored a stocking for a family in need. That feel-good math warms our hearts and fuels our mission.
