Give the Gift of Hygge
We knew that this Christmas we wanted to do something special for the youth in our community. Partnering with the Adoptive Families Association of BC, we set our sights on giving the gift of Hygee this holiday season. What is Hygge you may ask?
“Hygge: (Pronounced Hue-Guh) a danish word used to acknowledge a special feeling or moment. It can be ordinary or extraordinary but is always cosy, charming or special.”
Our aim for this campaign was to provide backpacks for youth who have aged out of the foster care system in British Columbia. We stuffed the backpacks full with essential items like warm socks, toques, gloves, body wash, pens, and a journal. We had generous donations from the community dropped off at our charity partners as a much needed way of giving back during the Christmas season. With nearly 800 youth age out of the foster care system each year in BC, we wanted to provide the essentials over the holidays.
We supplied over 100 backpacks filled with the essentials during this campaign and are so thankful for your generosity!
