So it has been almost a month since I did the big sprinkle bags and I have heard from quite a few people. Here are some of the amazing things people had to say:
1. Good Afternoon, I wanted to tell you what a nice surprise it was to be stopped by you on the street today. My colleague and I were on a mission to get our gifts for the office, and in our own world when you stopped us. I have to say I was startled. When we opened our bags, we were shocked at your kindness. Someone of your age I would have thought would have kept the money! I am all about "Giving" this year, and not toys to my kids or an Ipod to a family member. I have donated my time, and have recently sponsored a child in a third world country. This really warmed my heart and made my day. My colleague and I switched bags that were handed to us. I had the Warm hands and Music Sprinkle bag. We walked around Stevens Ave for a bit, and found a lady who really looked like she could have used the gloves. She looked so grateful when we gave them to her. :) The itunes gift card, I will be passing on to my friend, who is going on a long trip, and would need the tunes. I am blessed with enough, and feel the gift card would help her on her journeys. I wish you a Merry Christmas!
2. thanks Nicky! hey we got two of your sprinkles in Calgary. one was a box of monopoly chocolates that you gave to my 6 year old son. he was so excited to get a gift. he gave some to a man who was whistling/busking instead of money and the man then let him whistle with him and gave him a flashing star which made him so excited! he also gave some to a policeman and offered them to lots of other people. our 8 year old daughter was given a subway voucher from you. she then looked very carefully to see if there was someone who could do with a decent meal and found a lady knitting who looked cold. she was so thankful for the meal card and it really made my daughters day to give a present to a stranger. it was such an unexpected thing to receive a present from a stranger on our first day in Canada (we are Aussies and have only just got home). We tried to spread the goodwill around by buying second hand warm clothes from a thrift shop in Canmore and then we donated them back to another charity in Vancouver. keep up the great work! it really made our very first ever white christmas a really memorable one!
3.Brilliant Nicky! Keep rockin' it!
