In its existence, the Little Elves Foundation has given away up to 45,000 gifts, according to Duhamel.
The foundation began a few months after Duhamel lost his brother to HIV/Aids after a two year bout. Feeling as though he needed to do something, Duhamel began giving away small gifts to people affected by the virus.
Now, 25 years on and 45,000 gifts later, Duhamel is still filled with the same sense of purpose with every basket he hands out.
