The holiday season is approaching! It’s the time of the year when everyone embraces the spirit of giving.

Instead of buying Uncle Bob another tie or your sister another bottle of perfume, think about giving more meaningful gifts this year.

During the season of light, consider purchasing luminaries as memorable gifts to honour loved ones. For everyone who has been touched by cancer, directly or indirectly, luminaries are a thoughtful gift idea.

Just as luminaries provide light and inspiration to Relay participants as they walk the track all night, giving the gift of strength in the fight against cancer to your family and friends will inspire them all year long.

Another great way to make the holiday season more meaningful is to encourage your loved ones to consider supporting your participation in Relay. Instead of traditional gifts, ask your friends and family to make a donation to help you reach your fundraising goal.

Giving the gift of a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society helps save lives and support those facing cancer now. That’s really a gift that keeps on giving.
