Good Monday afternoon to you! I hope that your weekend was great, and that you had a chance for some fun! And now, onto today's topic: I was quite touched when I learned of a family member's choice of corporate gifts that they will be giving for Christmas. This year, they will be giving festive red tins filled with gourmet cookies and other treats, created by a collection of some of the top chefs in the city. The most wonderful part? 100% of the proceeds will go directly to British Columbia's Children's Hospital. 100%.
This is the 6th Annual Operation Cookies for Kids fundraiser that local favorite winery Vista D'Oro has done. And after such a wonderful response in the previous years, I will certainly be keeping this in mind to pre-order for next year, as the perfect gift to give those who do not lack for lovely things, but would appreciate the heart-felt giving that comes along with purchasing these tins... and the delicious treats of course! Isn't this a beautiful idea?
