Vancouver: The Savvy Guide to December


It’€™s December, and even though you might be thinking about that long gift list for your friends and family, we’€™ve moved on. It’€™s time to start thinking about how to instill an appreciation for the gift of ‘€˜giving’€™ in your kids.
Here are some ideas for you to help capture the true spirit of the holidays.

Bring your kids to your local toy store to choose a gift for someone they don’€™t know, then wrap it up and drop it off at a toy drive
Why? Because it’€™s good for them to understand that some kids don’€™t get everything they want for the holidays’€”in fact, some don’€™t get anything at all.

To the Student Union Building at UBC on December 2
Why? Because Santa will be there for photos from 12 to 2 pm as a fundraiser for UNICEF UBC. As well, you can browse the annual AMS Holiday Sale and the Campus Security Lost & Found Sale in support of the United Way. Shopping and Santa’€”with proceeds going to charity’€”that’€™s a holiday deal.

A gift of three baby chicks for someone who has everything
Why? Because it’€™s a $15 gift that literally keeps on giving for girls in developing nations who will use the chicken eggs to sell and feed their own families. It could help save a girl’€™s life.
