I would like to take a moment to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season! I hope it's spent with family and friends, and filled with laughter and cheer.
I would also like to thank all of you for your business, your referrals and your support over the last year and I can't wait to see what 2020 has in store for all of you!
Instead of sending out traditional holiday greetings in the mail, I've chosen to make a donation to an organization that is doing some incredible things.
Located in Whitby, Ontario, WindReach Farm strives to enrich the lives of persons of all ages with disabilities and/or special needs by providing opportunities to enjoy experiences in farming, nature, outdoor recreation and other activities and to share those experiences with family and friends.
WindReach was founded by Sandy Mitchell MBE. Sandy was born with cerebral palsy and was a three-time equestrian Paralympian. He recognized early in life the value and impact of an accessible farm and natural environment for individuals with special needs of all ages. Animals and fresh country air combined with barrier free design is good for everyone’s overall mental health and well-being. Sandy’s vision to inspire, empower and change lives turns the ordinary into extraordinary experiences for our visitors and program participants.
I've been lucky enough to visit the farm a few times and I'm always amazed at the love and care the staff has for the visitors, animals and each other. They are truly inspirational people.
The farm relies on donations to keep their animals fed and to keep their programming going. Please consider making a small donation to ensure WindReach farm can continue to enrich the lives of people with disabilities and special needs!
Happy Holidays and All the Best for 2020!
