“In this day in age we have the opportunity to get toys, but at the end of the day what are the kids going to remember more? The toy that Grandma picked up, or baking cookies with her?” ~ Alisha 6:04

“Every month they got something in the mail – and that doesn’t happen very often anymore.” ~ Alisha 9:30

“For many years we have done DIY Christmas gifts for friends and neighbours. Our tradition is to make them together as a family, and then get in the car and drive around with hot chocolate to hand them out the week before Christmas. It makes me feel like Santa Clause.” ~ Amanda 28:02

“The best part of my Christmas was seeing my neighbours enjoying the Christmas gifts that I made for them.” ~ Amanda 31:10

“If you are considering getting your child a musical instrument, a ukulele is the best instrument as it is not very expensive.” ~ Amanda 47:10
