This season, give the gift of giving



For the past couple of months, The March of Dimes and a group of Canada's bloggers have been actively promoting an upcoming event to be held in Toronto on Sunday December 2nd at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. The OpportuniTeas High Tea with the Young and Restless' very own Kate Linder and Friends.

Well, it brings me great pleasure to inform you that the event is in fact SOLD OUT. The March of Dimes would like to thank everyone who has purchased a ticket for the soiree and looks forward to meeting everyone on Sunday.

They would also like to remind everyone of the importance that donations play for their everyday existence. They have for years been instrumental in raising funds and awareness to the plight of people who are born with and suffer from debilitating diseases, such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida and muscular dystrophy. They also add support to those who develop physical disabilities later in life, such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, stroke, or post-polio syndrome.

The March of Dimes Canada offers life-changing programs, such as the stroke Recovery Program®, Post Polio Program, and Conductive Education® are helping individuals lead more independent lives. They are thankful that through the generosity of people like yourselves, they are able to assist more than 50,000 Canadians.

But the March of Dimes still needs your help. Until the end of the year, Scotiabank has generously agreed to match every donation http://bit.ly/SsXYIH dollar-for-dollar, up to $10.000. Any donation received by December 31st, 2012, will go twice as far in helping to change a life in need.

Please make your end-of-year donation http://bit.ly/SsXYIH today and assist the March of Dimes do more than ever. Your tax deductible gift will offer those living with physical disabilities a better chance to achieve their potential for independence.

If you only make one donation to a worthy cause this calendar year, why not make it the March of Dimes Canada Foundation? They will put it to good use by helping others
