How to provide relief to those affected by the BC flooding this holiday season

“SON of a NUTCRACKER!!” – Buddy the Elf

Christmas is less than one month away!!! Hip hip hooray!! This year my neighbours have all gone all out on their Christmas lights, and I could not be more excited. It’s wonderful to walk my dog and be surrounded by twinkling multicoloured lights.

The last 3 years have been a gong show, but at Christmas, I am always filled with joy and wonder. I feel like this year, with my neighbouring towns being washed out by floods, and the ongoing storms that are not going to be offering any sort of relief any time soon, in addition to all the other negative aspects of the last several years, we need as much joy as we can find. No matter where we find it.

If you are effected by the flooding, please stay safe. For those of us not effected directly, please consider giving to the non-profits below who are helping those in need:

  • @redcrosscanada
  • @salvationarmycanada
  • Abbotsford Disaster Relief Fund
  • @abbotsfordfoodbank
  • @bcagcouncil
  • @bcdairy
  • @bcspca
  • Fraser Valley Child Development Centre
  • @gofundmeca
  • @islamicreliefcanada
  • @migrantrightsca
  • @unitedway_bc

Additionally, local stores such as @londondrugs and @saveonfoods are collecting funds at their tills when you are doing your regular holiday shopping.

If you have the capacity to spread joy and relief, please do so. This will allow more of us to enjoy the magic of the holiday season, no matter what our circumstances.
