Donating to charity is the perfect opportunity to make a difference in the world and can save many lives. Giving to those who are less fortunate gives us a feeling of satisfaction and self-worth and this is part of the reason why it’s important to teach children to give and not just receive.

Dr. Andre Lalonde, a long time CPAR donor and former Board Member, gave his grandchildren (ages seven to 12) a unique Christmas project. He asked them to select a gift from CPAR’s Gifts of Change Gifts of Change catalogue and challenged them to each personally contribute towards the gift they selected. Some of the grandchildren contributed funds from their own savings while others raised funds by having a cookie sale.

A big thank you to Zacharie, Eve, Marie-Soleil, Emile and Laurier for their generosity. You help make the world a happier place. Our gratitude also goes out to their grandfather Andre for matching the children’s donations and encouraging charitable giving.
