Sam's Gift - Covenant House Vancouver

Sam’s Gift

Back to Blog Listing Page | | August 7, 2009

Sam and his mother came in today with a wonderful gift.  He was adorable with a curly mop of hair and big eyes.  He handed me an envelope looking very proud, $32 in twoonies.

Sam just turned 5, his day was full of fun and he had a cake with cars on it….for his birthday party he asked all his guests to bring a twoonie to help the kids without a bed.

You see Sam has accompanied his mother to St Paul to do rounds in the early mornings and questioned why there were kids on the street without beds, why would there mom’s let them sleep there, aren’t they cold etc..

He asked him mom if they had money could they have a bed, what can we do….she they came up with the birthday party idea and first in mind was Covenant House.

I bent down to tell him how thankful we were and commended his kind heart…I asked if I could give him a hug and he said yes and I received a delightful squish and off they went.  As I turned away I felt the tears well up, what more can I say, amazing!
