And that’s a wrap! Brian and Taylor’s Acts of Christmas Kindness is officially in the books. We had a lot of fun, and met some incredible people. Take a look at what we were able to do in our third and final week!
On Monday, we stopped by the Peterborough Humane Society to drop off some cat carriers, treats, toys and blankets! They were in need to carriers to send animals home with their new families, so we wanted to help them out. Furry friends need Christmas love too!
On Tuesday, we went to the Peterborough Regional Health Centre, to drop off some toys for the kids in the Pediatric Unit. These kids are in the hospital over Christmas, which is no fun at all, but they have such cheerful spirits, it’s amazing! We also brought the staff some gift cards for Tim Hortons. They work hard over the holidays, often missing Christmas with their own families.
Today, Brian and Taylor’s Acts of Christmas Kindness brought a bunch of toys to the paediatric unit at PRHC! We also have the staff some Tim Hortons gift cards, because they do such incredible work, and often miss Christmas with their own families. Thanks to our presenting sponsor @kawarthachrysler and to Bowmanville Home Building Centre for giving us a deal on the toys! #MerryChristmas #PayItForward
On Wednesday, we started getting busier! In the morning, Carson Bartlett stopped by the studio. He’s off to Daytona Kartweek, so he came in to chat about that. We surprised him with a Cineplex movie package- tickets, drinks, and popcorn! He thinks he’ll go check out the new Star Wars movie.
Later Wednesday morning, Sarah stopped by the station… Her uncle nominated her for our Acts of Kindness initiative. Sarah’s semester at Fleming was seriously impacted by the college faculty strike earlier this year, and it’s made things pretty tough. We thought she would appreciate a $50 gift card for No Frills, and tickets to a Peterborough Petes’ game! We also gave Sarah a Wolf 25th Anniversary T-Shirt.
Sarah was nominated by her uncle for Brian and Taylor’s Acts of Christmas Kindness. She’s a student, and the college professor strike earlier this semester really messed with her year! We surprised her with a $50 gift card for No Frills and tickets to a @petesohlhockey game! And a Wolf 25th Anniversary t-shirt, of course. #PayItForward #ChristmasKindness
Thursday morning after the show, Brian and Taylor went wandering around downtown Peterborough. We headed over to the bus terminal on Simcoe Street, to see if there were any bus drivers around. We got a nomination for the city bus drivers, encouraging us to do something kind for them. These guys and gals are extra busy this time of year, and they drive in some not-so-nice conditions! We surprised them with gift certificates for Tim Hortons and Firehouse Subs.
We also found some random people on the street to surprise with a few final items we had… One woman got $10 for Firehouse Subs, and another pair got a couple of Petes’ tickets, and $10 for Firehouse Subs!
Friday was the final day for Brian and Taylor’s Acts of Christmas Kindness! That flew by. We had two items left, and we were on a mission. First, taylor happened to notice a Canada Post delivery woman out on her route, and decided to stop her (sorry for slowing you down!) to chat a bit. Tracey is always very busy at this time of year- lots of Christmas cards and online shoppers mean lots of mail to deliver! We thought we’d help Tracey out with her Christmas shopping, with a $50 gift card for Lansdowne Place Mall!
Finally, we stopped by Lansdowne Place Mall to see Santa. There was one family getting photos, and we decided we’d treat them! We gave them a certificate to pay for any Santa photo package they wanted, so they could have some beautiful Christmas memories! Then I jumped in to one of their family photos. Don’t worry, they got one without me too.
Thanks to everyone who submitted a nomination for our acts of kindness, unfortunately we weren’t able to get to everyone, but hopefully we made the Christmas season a little brighter for those we could! And, of course, a huge thanks to our incredible sponsors: our presenting sponsor Kawartha Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat, and our supporting sponsor Firehouse Subs. Some great business also gave us a helping hand: Lansdowne Place Mall, The Peterborough Petes, and the Bowmanville Home Building Centre!
Merry Christmas everyone!
