Another worthy charity receives Usborne Books

17th October 2017

One of the most important influences for success in life is the availability of books in the hands of children from birth on. This autumn, we are making donations across the country to ensure all children have access to Usborne Books.

Today we delivered our Charity box!!!

I decided to donate this box to Midwives of Algoma in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario. The reason why I chose to donate to them is because of Hayden and Hunter. If it weren't for these two beautiful women, Andrea and Amanda, my son wouldn't be here today. We had two different midwives with Hayden which were just as amazing.

When this opportunity came, that I could donate Usborne books to a charity of my choice I was going to donate them to someone with a sick child but after thinking long and hard I wanted to give back to a business that has helped me. That's when I wanted to think of a business that has helped not only myself but my children. That's when I thought of MidWives of Algoma. These ladies aren't your normal doctors.

Yes, they get paid to go through my pregnancy with me and help deliver but they don't get paid for the late night calls/texts/Facebook conversations. These two ladies have gone above and beyond what their job description states. We have created a friendship. They still message me and ask how my children are doing. That means everything to me. 

They will be using the books in the waiting room as well in their personal office for the children waiting for their moms to finish their appointments.
