Rad Dads has received a thank you note from Santa's Anonymous for the donations given to them after our Halloween Monster's Ball so we thought we'd share.  Thanks to all the awesome Moms and Rad Dads that came out and brought a donation.  In the meantime and in between time, stay rad. 

Dear Rad Dads,

Thank you. Two simple words that mean so much. 

Because of you, less fortunate children all over Edmonton will wake up to new toys on Christmas morning. It has been a difficult few years for many Albertans and some families who were once in a position to donate have found themselves in need of assistance for the very first time. It can be a humbling experience for them. Michael’s family was one of these last year and his mom sent a note we would like to share with you.

“You made my son so happy with the toys that you gave him. It was our first year receiving gifts from Santas Anonymous. I am so thankful for your kindness. This is the first time I saw my son so happy, you really touched his heart. He actually told me if someday he is fortunate enough, he will share his blessings with other kids like him. You are such a good example to everyone and I am glad that my son is inspired to help others because of your goodness.”

Donations like yours make a difference in the lives of so many in the community. There are countless other examples like Michael's of how your gift inspires generosity in future generations.
