Angels come in all shapes, from little girls to car dealers to runners

April, 2011

A real-life angel appeared at our door on a chilly March morning to warm our hearts!

The angel came in the form of Amanda, 9 (right), who was inspired by her school and her parents to give her birthday gifts to a charity. She appeared on Global along with her parents and her 5-year-old brother and said she was “cool” with it.

“I am giving my gifts to help some people who don’t have as much as I have,” she said. “We help the hungry children in Africa, but I also want to help hungry people in my city.”

In February, Amanda’s friends called in their donations to help Generations food programs. About that time, another little girl with a big heart, Cassandra, was also helping. Her mother called to say that her daughter was turning 8 and was giving her birthday gifts to Generations.

Registration has begun at CLSCs and camps. This year promises to be even better than last. Since 2000, we have sponsored several thousand children for a two-week stay at country camp. Our sponsorship of a child to Trails End or Amy Molson camps requires registration with the camp with proof of low income and a referral from the child’s school counselor or social worker. generationsfoundation.com 514-933-8585.
