Many people have asked me if I am doing Christmas mini’s this year,
and I have some exciting news!!!
Last year our family made the decision to forgo many of the gift exchanging that we usually do, in favour of putting the total amount of money we would normally spend towards The Giving Tree at Northumberland Mall. This charity provides much-needed support to families who need it during the holidays. We took our girls down to see how many names were on the tree, and how hard it was going to be for some families to provide their children with the kind of christmas that most of us take for granted. We are not wealthy by any stretch of the imagination, but we do have more than enough in our own lives and certainly we have lots we can share.
Our experience (and the mark it made on the kids) made us want to do a bit more this year for this organization. As I said, we don’t have a lot of money, but we do have the time, talent, and desire to make a more significant contribution this year. I am THRILLED to announce that Northumberland Mall has generously offered us a vacant unit in the mall for a day, and we are hosting a fabulous Christmas Photo Party! On December 7th, children can be photographed on one of several stylized Christmas sets for a $20 donation to the Giving Tree. 100% OF THE PROCEEDS WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE GIVING TREE!!! Our friend Joanne from Garden Girl has offered to help us create some gorgeous sets for our mini’s, and we couldn’t be more excited to work with her!
Additional children can be added for $10 each, and all files will be emailed the SAME DAY!!! Great for gifts, Christmas Cards, or just as a memorial of the 2013 Christmas season. Stop by and see our elves and helpers to get your kids photographed, and feel great about your 100% donation to an amazing charity that helps children in our community.
