Snowballing Kindness

This past Saturday the residents of Waterwheel St., Taylor St. and Smithy St. in Markham held a gigantic street sale.

When Mary recieved the flyer in her mailbox she thought it would be a great opportunity to have a bit of a fundraiser for Julia!

She brought a flyer to Carleton Printing, who immediately said they wanted to support Julia by printing any and all things to further the cause. They not only printed the flyers, but printed up four HUGE posters. The community`s generosity began here, and slowly snowballed!

Once the flyers were handed out by a very helpful friend and neighbour Susan, people began calling to add their support to Julias Foundation, every one wanted to help.

Neigbours came to the street sale with donations in hand, and you have NO idea how eternally gratefull we are to all of you!

People donated their items to be sold at the street sale, and a family friend donated food for our BBQ sale! Friends and family came to send good wishes to Julia and her family, and we raised hope and spirits and funds...

It was a HUGE success despite the rain in the afternoon, and everyone is so grateful for everything and anything that was contributed.

Can you feel the love? I can!!!
