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?

  • Here are some of the items that go into a UGM Christmas Hamper:
  • Food
  • Gift cards
  • Baby and toddler toys

When I was younger I used to order a McChicken sandwich with two apple pies and a small coke with a happy meal. Now I order it without the happy meal. I'm dying for the McRib to come back, it's my favorite food there. Today,it doesn't really matter what I order at McDonald's. The food there is unhealthily tasty.

You are the light in my eye, My wings that make me fly, The beat to my heart that feels so right, Nothing will tear us apart, You are my angel sent from above, You have given me all of you're love, And I can not thank you enough for that, Thank you for your time,  I am sooooo happy that # ### #### you all mine  My number one priority? That's you.  There is not one thing I wouldn't do,  just to see you your cheeks rise ,  up to those two beautiful green eyes,  Don't worry about cheating, hurting, or lies,  because baby I am never going to make you cry,  and if you ever do I promise to wipe them dry  To my sole mate, lover, and best friend,  I want you to know I am here until the very end.
