Calling out to my Toronto Readers for help

In Toronto while my son and his friends were celebrating a birthday, another child from our neighborhood was losing everything but his parents.

There was a blaze that destroyed a townhouse complex in our neighborhood. To read the full article as published by CTV click here.

The toddler they speak of in the article that was caught by that extraordinary gentlemen is a playmate of a friend. The family affected did not have any insurance...

Donations for the families effected can be made at the Lighthouse Church, 17 Rhodes.

Items they need are as follows:

  • Clothing
  • Blankets
  • Personal Stuff
  • Toys for Ana and others (she is 22 months)
  • Food (no peanut-based)

They are also hoping to present monetary donation in cheque form adressed to Helping Hands International Ministries, branch/transit #05522 and Account Number #010-4901-1

I can't help but to tear up when I try to imagine the thoughts that must have gone through that mother's head when she threw her baby out the window to safety.
