On the 2020 Giftmas Blog Tour, Doublejoy Books is one of several websites supporting a fundraiser collecting donations for the Edmonton Food Bank. You can click here to find out more about the 2020 Giftmas fundraiser, and make a donation. It's really a good idea to click so you can read what organizer Rhonda Parrish has written about how food banks and food hampers can make a difference for families and individuals. Because of the Edmonton Food Bank's purchasing power, each dollar donated here is enough to provide three meals.
As someone who lived near Edmonton for 15 years, who has family and friends there, I can confirm that when vulnerable in Edmonton, any help and support are needed and appreciated. Rhonda Parrish has set up a fundraiser with achievable goals, that supports a needed service. You can read more about Rhonda at her website at this link.
