Just before Christmas, we were able to be a part of something amazing and exciting. Our partnership with OHgo allowed us to attach Christmas cards to the shoe box gifts they were going to deliver to children in Erie County, Ohio who were in need of a little extra love. These gifts (almost 1000!) and cards (600!) were then hand delivered to the children in time to open them on Christmas morning. All of the volunteers that were a part of Project Happy Christmas really did make a difference in the lives of many with all of their small acts of kindness. We were honored to be a part of such an awesome event and can't wait to see what the future holds.
On a side note, OHgo has made a huge difference in the lives of many children in our communities. They have also promoted and perpetuated an attitude of giving back and putting smiles on people's faces through small acts of kindness. In a world and society that is constantly bombarded by all that is wrong, it is nice to see individuals finding the good in everyone and making it a part of their life. We know that the future is bright for our community when there are individuals who are willing to make a difference in the lives of many by being kind and inspiring others to do the same.
