Why give to the Christmas Wish List? - giving is receiving
When you give that special wish to someone in need, you are making a connection - to their heart and yours. This is a special time of year for those staying at the Kawe Kii Win Centre, family connections have been broken, or lost, or simply forgotten.
The purpose of this initiative is show the residents that are not invisible, that someone cares. It also allows people to see that the residents are not unknown and nameless, but real people with personal stories, who can feel the joy of Christmas in a simple way. When you give you are saying I see you. I care about you. And in your caring is hope that can mean the difference between someone feeling lost and alone or part of a greater community, a community where they belong and having meaning and purpose.
