Help us bring Santa's Workshop from the North Pole to the East Side

for complimentary photos and all the trimmings! 


I have noticed so many more families with little ones  coming to the Eastside Market these days for affordable food, warm clothes, boots, socks and all the goodies that many of us take for granted.

The one thing I recently experienced that really resonated with me was the stark contrast  from Robson Street to Hastings Street at Christmas time.

Christmas lights, trees, Santa, wafts of chocolate delights and sweet peppermint in the crisp air should be experienced by all Vancouverites.

You can give a first time experience to a family that may not otherwise be able to afford it.
