Saved Christmas

  • Print

We thought Christmas would be ruined when our autistic son lost a bag of his video games on the way to a doctor’s visit. He was devastated and after checking with neighbourhood businesses and schools, we gave little hope of finding the games and saving Christmas for our son.

Fortunately, there are good people out there, and one of them found the bag and went door to door to see if they could find the owner.

Finally, they went to the doctor’s office, where staff knew who the owner was.

We were not able to find out who this person was, however we were overwhelmed by their efforts. In order to pay it forward, we made a contribution to SouthGlen Vet to help a Craig Street cat, who had undergone surgery.

Thank you to the special person who made the effort to find the owner of these games, and we wish you a very Merry Christmas.
