Delivering Compassion Returns for 2018

Delivering Compassion Campaign Launches for 2018

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at start to change.” – Wayne Dyer

Imagine for a moment you were freezing cold with no warm clothing to speak of, no friends or family to rely on, and a constant growling in your stomach because you can’t remember the last time you had a meal, never-mind when you might get your next one.

The 2016 homeless count reported over 1700 homeless people living in Edmonton

Then try to picture, as hard as it might be, how it would feel if a complete stranger approached you with a meal they prepared with their own hands and delivered it to you with a caring, compassionate smile.

How might that make you feel in that moment to know that someone cares?  That someone is thinking of you, even in just some small way.

That is why Santa YEG was started; because we believe that when we extend compassion to each other, when we show people love who aren’t used to feeling it, the way they view the world changes and the world changes around them.

Santa YEG is fueled by Edmontonian’s who care about making a difference.  So many people and organizations in our City do so much, all year ’round, to help others in need.  We are so grateful to join those organizations to do our part in some small way.

For the 2018 campaign we will focus our efforts on feeding Edmonton’s less fortunate and creating meaningful experiences where volunteers prepare meals and serve them to those who need them most.

To join our community of compassion and learn how you can help, please email us at santayeg@outlook.com or call us at 780-996-8389.

Happy Holidays,

Santa YEG
