Charities are feeling the pinch this year due to the economic downturn. Divergence of increased need and less donations expands the problem further. Christmas is the time of giving and everyone will be joyously opening their gifts tomorrow. But we hope everyone goes out and donates even a small portion to those less fortunate. Charities see a sharp decline after Christmas so it’s important to fund them to help those in need for the period after Christmas. Come on Vancouver!
