Thanks to Santa Claus, a Happy End to our Season at Marché Jean-Talon!

The weather didn’t cooperate this Fall, nor today, but Santa Claus’ visit at Marché Jean-Talon on Saturday, December 1st — incidentally, World AIDS Day– allowed us to break all previous records. Our team of volunteers, and everyone who bought a product at the kiosk or a picture with everyone’s favourite bearded man, raised $3,920 !!!

That said, the race isn’t over yet. New organizations have requested gifts for their beneficiaries, and, of course, there will be shipping costs to cover.

So, if you haven’t done so yet, we invite you to make a small donation towards our goal of over 4,000 gifts. You can do so online through our partner CanadaHelps. Thanks in advance!

Next weekend, we wrap!
