I struggle to imagine how another year has passed without our beautiful, kind and patient Mom.
We know she sees us, and feel comforted when we think of her.
The big fundraising totals in last year’s Hike for Hospice blew me away! I was so heart warmed by the number of people who reached out, shared my campaign and donated funds in a year that was still so wrought with uncertainty and pandemic pressure. Since Mom’s passing in November of 2020 – Hospice Halifax has welcomed many families into their care. It’s my hope we made a difference for these families, and for the incredible humans who work there. It’s also my hope that again this year, you’ll all help me in supporting this organization which has been a gift to me.
I’ve personally chosen to support Hospice Hospice in their work, by raising awareness, sharing their social media posts and donating when I can. I ask that you do the same, whether or not you’re able to donate. It’s my pleasure to support this organization, to increase access to the same care and compassion shared with my family – even in the brief time we spent in their care.
So please – if you like a cup of Tetley tea, to watch Wheel of Fortune, to bake, do jigsaw puzzles, or play Candy Crush on your iPad – know my mother is smiling when you do. This is how I remember her best.
Sarah and Family
PS Again this year I’m offering a batch of baked goods of your choice (from Ma’s catalogue or not 😉 ) to the individual who makes the largest donation to my campaign. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
