And The Winner Is......

I've been so busy lately that I didn't even notice when my Facebook page went over 5,000 "likes." For those that have been paying attention you know what that means! I promised awhile back that once my page got over 5,000 wonderful fans that I would donate $250 to the charity of YOUR choice. Tonight I was able to make that donation!

The list of charities in the running was created by YOU. All you had to do was let me know about a charity that you wanted to support and it went into the draw. Chosen by the lucky charity that received the $250 donation was the Children's Cottage Society!

The Children’s Cottage Society offers a wide range of programs for parents and children in Calgary, Alberta strengthening families by demonstrating leadership through a network of Crisis, Respite, and Support Services.

Their Services Include:
• Crisis Nursery
• Respite Care
• Family Support

Their Mission:

“Preventing harm and neglect to all children and strengthening families through crisis, respite and support services”.

The Children’s Cottage Society believes asking for help is a sign of strength. The Children’s Cottage works closely with other agencies to connect families to appropriate resources that can meet their needs.

Check out their wish list to see if you have any items you can donate to them:

I have loved doing this giveaway as it has really shown me some fantastic organizations that are out there really making a difference. I can only hope that by doing this I've been able to spread some awareness and teach you about some of them as well.
