Sophia leads the way

UPDATE : JCI Winnipeg's Charity Toy 

After a busy month with our #wpgToyDrive, we are very excited to share with you the success of this initiative. With the help of 13 different sponsors across the city, coupled with JCI Winnipeg member Brandi White's efforts, we collected over 300 toys for the Christmas Cheer Board.

A very big THANK YOU to all those who contributed to this initiative. Your generosity is undeniable, heartfelt and appreciated.

We would like to thank the 13 businesses that made important contributions to this drive. They age:

Sophia leads the way...

I was moved when my daughter and I discussed the Christmas Cheer Board’s toy drive.

What’s a “toy drive” she asked. With a few explanations about giving to those who need, Sophia decided to break open her piggy bank and give.

She wants to make sure that as many kids as possible can have a present to unwrap on Christmas morning. She wants to help me organize a drive. And so, we are. With the help of JCI Winnipeg and generous support from small businesses across the city, we've put together a list of Drop-off Location Sponsors to help Sophia gather as many contributions as possible.

I'm happy that she has such a big hart. I'm so proud of her and that she cares for others. It's an important value that all children can learn. Also, I'm glad to be a part of JCI. This group of young professionals can help little ideas like this turn into community successes.

On Monday, Nov. 10th, look to JCI Winnipeg's blog and Twitter feed for details on where you can donate a new, unwrapped toy for the Christmas Cheer Board. Tag and follow the drive on Twitter with #wpgtoydrive.

Thanks to all the businesses who have volunteered to host a Drop Off location, and to all of you who can contribute. 

Together, let’s help Sophia get, or should I say give, her Christmas wish.

Brandi White,JCI Winnipeg member and proud mother.
