Every year, the holiday season reminds us that there are some families that could use a little help. The holidays are a great time to receive, but an even better time to give. It's in this spirit that we decided to end 2016 by giving back to our community!
We work closely with multiple community driven organizations that work tirelessly throughout the year to offer amazing programs that bring joy to their clients. Although these organizations do everything in their power to accept all participants, sometimes, and often due to financial issues, not everyone can afford to join the classes they love.
We decided to offer an Amilia organization a gift certificate applicable for the purchase of any activity to support a customer who, despite a tough period, deserves to continue participating in an activity of his or her choosing.
Over 50 Amilia organizations (day camps, sports clubs, community centers...) sent in their applications and, in a few lines, explained why one of their members deserved this gift. We then selected the recipient organization based on the following criteria:
- The quality of the request.
- The situation of the participant.
The choice was not an easy one to make, but we are pleased to announce that the Gymnastic Club l’Envol has been selected. They will be able to help one of their athletes participate in one of their classes. We believe that every child deserve the chance to chase their dreams and we're grateful that Gymnastic Club l’Envol has given us the opportunity to make that possible.
This processed showed us how much our organizations care about their members. It was inspiring and heartening for us to know that all these organizations are members of the Amilia community. We couldn't be prouder to be working with them.
To warm you up a little during this holiday season, we share this festive video of our team!
