Merry & Bright Initiative
Our Family purchased three 15 min virtual visits with Santa and came up with a way to engage others in random acts of kindness while randomly gifting these three visits.
We created a Colouring Contest open to all children between the ages of 0-18 in the Edmonton & Surrounding areas.
This was they had to do:
Step 1. Download the "Merry & Bright" picture & print it off.
Step 2. Have your child colour it. Get them to add their own picture or words of hope & kindness.
Step 3. Take a picture of it and submit it.
Step 4. Place your picture in a plastic ziploc bag, wait 72 hours & give it to a random neighbor in their mailbox.
On December 10th all pictures submitted were put into a random draw & three random names were be pulled to win a virtual 15 min visit with Santa. To extend our giving we also were provided with three story time visits with Mrs. Claus which we gifted to the three runners up.
All children who did not win received a small gift of appreciation for paying it forward. It definitely put a smile on our faces to be able to give something during a time in which a lot has been restricted and taken away due to covid-19.
