Chai Lifeline’s Toy Drive
For the majority of families, the holidays are a time we all look forward to; when traditions are established, recalled and celebrated. There are family members, you maybe haven't seen in a while, whom you'll be laughing and lighting candles with while eating delicious foods and deserts. For most families, Chanukah filled with good memories and joy.
However, not all of us will be facing the holidays with hope and joy. If family does come to visit, it may not be in order to gather around the dining room table or to sit in front of the candles and spin a dreidle. It may instead be to stand around a hospital bed, holding hands and praying that their ten-year old girl will be able one day to run and play with neighbours and school friends. Most of all, they are desperately hoping that the holiday will not establish for them a new tradition... one of grief and mourning.
Chai Lifeline Canada is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping Canadian children suffering from serious illness, as well as their family members.
