We are so excited to see Medicine Hat Campaign Leader, Keri Karman featured on the front page of her local newspaper. The article titled, “Tis the season: Hatters share their Christmas Traditions” explores the family traditions people look forward to every year during the holidays. Traditions that people cherish include getting together with family, cooking and pulling secret Santa gift exchange names.
The article got me thinking about the holiday traditions that I look forward to each year. One of my favourite traditions on Christmas day is reflecting on the impact donorworx World Changers have had on so many communities around the world. I like to take a moment to think about all of the children who have had a knock on their door with news that they have been sponsored. I try and imagine how joyful the children’s reactions must be and the sense of love and hope that they would feel when they learn this news. This is my sixth Christmas fundraising campaign with donorworx, and I can’t imagine a Christmas without the tradition of getting involved to make a difference.
