Flashframe Digital Media celebrates the season by supporting Holiday Helpers, a registered charity dedicated to making Christmas very special for deserving low-income families with young children. With the participation of generous donors, volunteers, and partners, Holiday Helpers provides each family on its list with a Christmas dinner, decorated tree, and customized gifts for every member of the household.
It all began back in 1996, when April and Sarah Rutka heard about a family that had lost everything in a fire right before Christmas. The two sisters rallied their friends and relatives to help out, and the experience inspired them to launch Holiday Helpers. Over the past 20 years, they have delivered Christmas packages to more than 3,000 families in the Greater Toronto Area.
This year, Flashframe volunteered our time to wrap gifts and help out in the warehouse, as well as making a donation and producing a video to honour Holiday Helpers’ 20th anniversary.
During their two decades of commitment to bringing Christmas cheer to needy families, April and Sarah have gathered over 6,000 volunteers who share their vision. Our Flashframe team members found our own spirits brightened as we worked alongside all the caring people at Holiday Helpers.
