Every year I launch The GATE’s Holiday Gift Guides with a charity guide. The holidays are coming up quickly, and we all spend a lot on gift giving, but it’s also a great time to give back to our communities.
The holidays are coming up quickly, and it’s really one of the most wonderful times of the year. While the holidays are all about celebrating loved ones though, they’re also about giving, and more importantly, giving back.
Giving Tuesday might be behind us, but Toronto based healthcare software company RL Solutions and SickKids Hospital have a great way to help people give back during the holidays while giving generous donors some sweet holiday treats thanks to the SickKids Milk & Cookies Truck.
The holidays are a wonderful time of year to celebrate family, friends, and all the good things in our lives, and they’re also the perfect time to give back. We started our annual charity gift guides so we could try to inspire a range of ideas to give back, and offer a window into some of the opportunities available to give to the community. This year we’re focusing our attention on three very important initiatives: SickKids, Habitat for Humanity, and The Brain Project.
Today is Tim Hortons Camp Day, and it’s an opportunity for you to directly help kids across Canada have a life-changing camp experience.
Before the holiday season begins, we want to take a moment to talk about a great cause. It’s an annual tradition here at The GATE that before the holidays start, and before you really start shopping, we want you to think about supporting a cause that could help your community, or the world, and this year the focus is on Stand Up To Cancer.
The holidays are almost here. There’s Christmas music on the radio, stores are filled with festive goodies, and Santa Claus has even been showing up to meet with the little ones. That means it’s time to follow our holiday tradition and kick off The GATE’s Holiday Gift Guides with the all-important first edition: our charity gift guide.
This is a tradition for The GATE that means as much to us as any other custom of the holidays: before we get into this year’s Holiday Gift Guide, I want to share some of my favorite giving ideas for charities, and ways that everyone can support a good cause before they go shopping.
Gift-giving, parties, and celebrating time with the people we love is what the holidays are all about, but this unique season also give us an opportunity to make a difference in our communities, and that starts with supporting charities in our back yards and around the world.
The GATE’s annual Holiday Gift Guide series launches today, and once again we’re kicking off the gift-giving ideas with the important part–the charities. This time of year we celebrate the holiday season by sharing with family and friends, but as we have always said, it’s also a great time of year to reach out and share with the rest of our community–and the world–by giving to charities and organizations that always need support.
