Tubes for ToysThere are lots of great local fundraising events happening at this time of year. It's important to give back, in whatever way you can.

Thankfully some places are super creative with their fundraising ideas, offering fun and goodies in exchange for a donation to their favourite cause.

I'm a snow bunny, so this one caught my eye. Hemlock Valley Resort (about an hour east of the tri-cities) is hosting Tubes for Toys on December 18 - 19, 2010. Simply bring an unwrapped toy for each person in your group, and you will receive a free tubing pass and a hot chocolate!

The kids will be off school later today and what a great way for little ones to begin their winter break! Though, I have to say, tubing is fun for kids of all ages.

Have fun on the slopes :)

food donationsI love the holidays. One of the best things about this special time of year is that magical spirit in the air; the spirit of giving. 

My office, Sutton Group - 1st West Realty, is capturing this spirit by helping out six local refugee families from Nepal and Sri Lanka. We are presently accepting food and cash donations to share with them over the holidays.

If you are interested in contributing, please email me or phone 604.942.7211. The office address for drop off is 118-3030 Lincoln Avenue, Coquitlam.

Thanks for your consideration. Happy holidays!

REALTORS care blanket driveThe weather sure has been chilly in the tri-cities over the past couple of weeks. My mind always goes to the homeless during this kind of weather. The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive is on now and I encourage you to share some warmth with those less fortunate. 

The REALTORS Care® Blanket Drive started on November 29 and runs through to December 6, 2010. Over 100 real estate offices across the lower mainland are collecting blankets, sweatshirts, sleeping bags, warm winter jackets and other warm accessories to help keep the homeless and working poor warm this winter. 

Donations first stay in the communities in which they are collected. If there is a surplus and greater need in another neighbourhood, they will be shared.
