Local & Loving it – London ON

I very much believe in community, if you know me you already are aware of my commitment to giving back. I urge you to remember FoodBanks in this, particularly difficult time. Donate what you can, anything no matter how insignificant it may seem to help. More than you can imagine. A little and a little more and a little more makes a lot more. Donate to your favourite creative arts provider, The Grand Theatre, Blyth Theatre, Stratford Festival, Aeolian Hall…. these resources need our support more than ever before. Can you imagine a life without the arts? I can’t.

As for my blog, the businesses I have selected are far more than that, a business, to me. They are people. They are friends. They are risk-takers. They are heart-centred. They are creators and brilliant thinkers who provide beauty to our world. In every instance I can, I will be ordering little things from a variety of places so that in the end, after all, is said and done, I know I did my part. And guess what? It is so much more fun!!! That is what will make me feel good this Christmas. That and seeing the faces on those in my virtual bubble when they receive the special something I found especially for them. Local or Canadian nurtured.
