Union Gospel Mission Toy Donation

Dec 13, 2010

Kidzworld recently made a large donation of brand-new, never-used toys, books and video games to Vancouver’s Union Gospel Mission (UGM) for its Gifts of Hope Christmas Hamper program.

As a safe, content-driven website for kids and tweens ages nine to 14, Kidzworld receives tons of toys, book and games throughout the year for review. Each holiday season we donate all the items that have collected in our office throughout the year to a worthy cause. This year we’re happy that all these brand-new toys, books and games will be given to kids throughout Metro Vancouver through UGM’s Christmas Hamper program.

“Our Gifts of Hope hamper program would not be possible without the support of … corporate partners,” states the UGM website. “Items … donated to UGM’s Christmas Hamper program will make Christmas brighter for families in desperate need this season. Some have struggled with homelessness this year; some are fighting just to keep a roof over their heads. No matter their circumstances, there’s no doubt your generosity will mean so much to parents who worried they wouldn’t be able to provide for their families this season.”

What Goes Into a Christmas Hamper?

There's alot of discussion on this in the social media . Many call it as a rumour while many say that they have fooled us . But I wonder why NASA has not answered all these questions to make it clear .

Straight or gay , should the gays punish straight people for liking opposite gender? No? Than should straight people punish gays for being attracted to the same gender?  How far does that logic extend though? Should thieves punish non-theives for not stealing things? No? Than should non-theives punish theives for stealing things?
