I am sending our newsletter a few days early as there are things I want to share with you.
Our mat making production continues to grow and we are now at 5305 mats for the year 2019; thank you for all your work.
The following is a touching message from Stewart who is a frame builder, and who drives mats to the warehouse for some of the schools in York Region.
“The fellow that helped me unload at the Canadian Food for Children depot asked me to pass this along to you. He was in Liberia and a woman was proudly showing him her home – dirt floors and all. The only thing in the house was one of the milk bag mats and she was extremely proud of it”.
When I read the above, it touched my heart. I am not ashamed of all we have here in Canada, but feel blessed. However, this woman only owned a mat and she was grateful for the people who made it possible for her to have this. These are the stories that make this work worthwhile.
