Richard and Hilda Martens, me, Helena and Waldemar with their children.

It was an absolute pleasure to hear Hilda's message on our voice mail about why Waldemar and Helena deserve to win the $200 Gift Card from Canadian Tire. They are German/Russian, speak very little English and have 6 precious children. It's not always easy during the holiday season and that's exactly why Canadian Tire wanted to help and they certainly have!! This morning I got the chance to meet Waldemar and Helena and present them with the $200. Through a bit of translation, Helena said she was so surprised and so thankful. Hilda and her generous spirit was thankful as well and when we left said, "This truly is Christmas!" They say it is better to give than to receive and Canadian Tire is doing exactly that by continuing to put "Family First". MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
