What do you give someone who has everything?

How about a donation to people who don’t have anything?

Terry and I want to give you a Christmas gift (besides our handy dress for success, networking and business etiquette expert advice).

Giving a donation to a worthy charity seems a good gift idea.

That’s what we’re doing this year. In our family we all make donations and only exchange little stocking stuffers, an idea which we’ve carried over into our business & corporate gift giving. We encourage you to do the same.

For every dollar you donate to a registered charity, the Canadian Government
will contribute one dollar to the Syria Emergency Relief Fund

Double the need – double your donation

So we’ve made some donations to help Syrian Refugees thru Oxfam. The nice thing about this donation is our Canadian government is matching donations.

Here is the Oxfam International link and the Oxfam Canada link

How about some local charities too

But whether it’s Syrian refugees or local food banks, there are many registered charities that would welcome your gift. Support one that is closest to your heart. This holiday season you can give a gift that really counts.

The nice thing about these gifts is they not only make the recipient feel good but they also make you the the donor feel good.

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and all the best in 2016
from Terry and Joanne.
