As a media outlet, we are constantly being asked to donate media space and support many local fundraising and charitable campaigns throughout the region. One of our chosen organizations this year and likely for many years to come is Breaking Down Barriers. This evening I was pretty much moved to tears when a delivery came to our house with a special thank you from the organization. It was not so much that the lovely framed Thank You included a very special ingraving recognizing mycollingwood.ca as a media sponsor...what moved me to tears was that the folks behind the organization appreciated our donation in such a classy fashion, but moreover that it reminded us how proud we are to support an organization that does such great work in our community. I was very proud to be reminded that our donation helped BDB raise almost $20,000. We are proud to be involved and thankful to be recongized. As parents of a challenged son, we know more than most how important an organization like Breaking Down Barriers is in any community, and especially thankful that they are in our community.
