Media Advisory/REMINDER: Christmas for All Toy Day! Christmas is Coming Early for More than 2,000 Underprivileged Children

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2012) - On December 8th, Welcome Hall Mission is having a Christmas party for thousands of children from underprivileged families in Montreal. They will be given toys just in time for the holidays! In Montreal, 26% of children live below the poverty line and this percentage is alarmingly increasing.

This special Christmas for All distribution brings joy to the lives of children, offering them hope amid the reality of their circumstances. We are transforming our food bank area into a huge party room where they can decorate gingerbread cookies and Christmas ornaments, get their faces painted with seasonal designs, play games, sit on Santa's lap and receive new toys for Christmas!

The media is invited to witness the love, hope, peace and joy of the season in the eyes of a child and help us bring awareness to the important issue of child poverty.
