There are many ways to give during the holiday season, but sometimes it isn’t a material gift that really makes much of a difference but rather giving something that will evoke an emotion. This holiday season I’ve decided to give some gifts, loads of tasty treats and a dash of Hope.
The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is one of the world’s top 5 cancer research centers and has been running a program called Doves of Hope for the past ten years.. Doves of Hope is a program where families and friends of loved ones who are fighting cancer can show their support by dedicating a dove in their name. Over 55,000 doves have been dedicated to date making a beautiful visual show of love, strength and solidarity that can be found in the Atrium of The Princess Margaret every year around this time.
This year I’ve dedicated my dove to a friend of mine named, Mandi, who was recently diagnosed with Cancer. I have never seen someone deal with something so complex with such style and grace. To me she is the epitome of strength, courage and hope!
Join me in spreading some hope this holiday season and dedicate a dove HERE. It takes but a few moments but leaves a lasting impact.
