Christmas 2015

Tbaytel, Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada  The 12 Days of Christmas Wish campaign.  TBaytelDilico and Children’s Aid both organize great campaigns each Christmas that provide gifts to children in Thunder Bay and the region. Tbaytel proudly supports these two organizations, and this year, our employees got together to shop, wrap, and deliver gifts for 100 children from these organizations this holiday season. If you are interested in donating to either campaign, please visit or visit any Wal-Mart location in Thunder Bay to recieve a gift tag and “wish list” for Children’s Aid. Dilico needs 120 more bags filled, and Children’s Aid needs 180 to meet their goals.

Kristine Barenz I am a Rodan + Fields consultant and will donate my new customer registration fees for the month of December to the RFDA (food bank). There is never a time when anyone should go hungry. The RFDA needs donations all year long, not just Christmas. I hope my donation will help to provide food to those in need all year.

Christmas 2014

Janis Ferrish- Speech Pathologist-  Child’s Centre Thunder Bay- Canada We are ready to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas with my “speech” colleagues at CCTB.  We are planning to take up a collection and then purchase new socks and underwear for the Undercover Project here in Thunder Bay.  The Undercover Project asks that the people of Thunder Bay donate brand new socks and underwear to help them meet the goal of assisting over 2000 needy children in Thunder Bay that are going without these bare necessities.  Best wishes with your project and thanks to you and your kids for inspiring us 🙂

 Stefania Borrelli, Founder of Esploritalia – Vitaliana and Language Culture Travel, Ottawa ON – Canada Dear Leanne and Peter, That’s a wonderful project! I’m sure your website will be visited many times from many more countries! This is my idea and contribution: I will forward your project to some of my contacts but to reach more people in the quickest time, I’ve just finished this morning to post the letter in my website, linked to the  “Pen Pal project”page , also I added a widget on the right side of the site with the picture of your school so people can click and go straight to the page. this way there is more chance to spread the project faster since my site is viewed in 112 countries from all the continents and more than 30,400 views. Hope this help! ciao ciao and see you at Christmas!  Stefania
