2017 Holiday Appeal Campaign - the Michaelis family
This holiday season, you can help give Ottawa-area families a hand up.
Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of seeing this little girl’s face light up with joy as she saw her new bedroom for the first time.
It took place at her family’s Habitat GO Key Ceremony; the day when their dream of owning their own home came true.
Tamara had a simple wish – to have a sleepover with her friends. She was sharing a bedroom with three of her siblings in a drafty rental unit that was difficult (and costly) to heat. The floor of their bedroom was covered entirely by mattresses.
The day of the Key Ceremony, Tamara was running around the upstairs of the four-bedroom home, thrilled that she could finally host a sleepover with her friends.
It’s those small things that mean so much to a child and something that many of us took for granted when we were children or raising our own kids.
