Inspired Giving Program
This morning I glanced up at the top of the bookcases in my kitchen. I had forgotten to take down the holiday cards. I climbed up to take them down and then I sat and read through them one by one. Several messages, home-made cards and lovely, stark designs stood out, but one card caused me to pause and consider the gift that accompanied the card. A wonderful gift - a gift of a respirator in our name to St. Michael's Hospital Foundation.
The ventilator and other gifts are purchased by St. Michael’s Hospital Foundation using the funds donated through the Inspired Giving program – thank you Grace, Paul and Jackie for your kind gift. We appreciate it.
Receiving this gift prompted me to purchase three stethoscopes, for which my daughter gave me a thumbs up. I am left thinking that this is how gift giving and receiving is meant to feel: warm, happy, positive. What is especially wonderful about St. Michael’s Hospital as the Inspired Giving recipient is that, regardless of our family receiving care from St. Michael’s , we realize that St. Michael’s Hospital gives loving care to the Toronto’s downtown core. They are the Urban Angel caring for those referred to specialists and also caring for those less fortunate then us; those who live on the streets.
St. Michael’s Hospital gave us a way to receive in appreciation and to give where it can have the most impact. The Inspired Giving program is a great opportunity to acknowledge friends and family while we contribute to the Urban Angel – St. Michael's Hospital. Nora
