TESTIMONIALS

“I wish you could see the faces of some of the children you’ve supported. Many parents wished to collect the snowsuits from the school. However, I was able to hand out a few suits and the kids were delighted! It’s so lovely to see them playing in the snow with their friends, knowing they’re warm and that they feel just like all the other kids. Thank you.”

“One child came in to get her snowsuit and was so overcome that she cried. I asked her if they were happy tears thinking she was upset but she shook her said and said, ‘No, it’s just so beautiful!'”
