The First to Give Back!

We were inspired by a friend's sister to give back to the community for James' First birthday this week.  We wanted to do this to give thanks for what we have and try to help others who are not as fortunate as us. We also felt like he wouldn't know at this point if he wasn't getting a present from us so perhaps in the future when he sees these pictures, he'll understand the importance of giving back!

We opted to purchase baby food and donate it to the Langley Food Bank, so Grandma and I hauled off to Superstore and cleared some shelves! (Yes, we usually take our own bags, but since we were donating, opted for plastic)

We took James to the Food Bank and as it was quiet, we got a great tour from a volunteer. They were thrilled with the donation and took James' info to write him a thank you card!



A big thank you to Grandma, Papa G and all of James' Great-Grandparents (Mollie, Ken, James and Lorraine) for their generous donations too! xox
