    We definitely complain about high taxes here in Canada, but seeing those numbers, I don’t mind contributing a small portion of my income each year to help myself and the less fortunate!

    I don’t know how you guys do it with such privatized health care!

    @Jen @ Canadian Rhapsody, I guess that’s just the way it is here – there has been lots of talk about changing it but so far nothing has happened. I don’t know enough about the different options to have an opinion as to what is best.

    But, this is one big way we deal with it. People rally together to support a good cause.

    For sure. We have a lot fundraisers here too, but they’re mostly for research. And to help families stay near the hospital, or help cover lost income, etc.

    It can be a very difficult thing to transition into paying higher taxes and waiting to see those tax dollars begin to result in a system that works for everyone.
    Families shouldn’t have to worry about losing their home because they’re putting everything they have into keeping their child alive. Society as a whole cares, but everyone thinks that someone else will step up and care for the sick, and it’ll never happen if we all feel that way. You’re doing a great thing!

    I’ll have to get the ebook as a stocking stuffer for a few people. I don’t have kiddos myself, but people who do would for sure love a gift that they know helped go towards a good cause.

    @Jen @ Canadian Rhapsody, Wouldn’t it be neat if the governments took things that worked best from each nation and put them into practice? The world would be a much better place.

    I know! I’m hoping Canada starts learning more from France.
    I wouldn’t mind paying a little less for childcare if the time comes!
    I wish our electoral process and the term of the prime minister was more like the states. I hate the threat of a new election (costing millions of dollars) every couple of months because the opposition doesn’t like something.

    @cheryl, The walk is November 21st in over 40 cities. It’s free to register and it’s also a family walk – they encourage you to bring people of all ages.

    I updated the post to reflect the date. Thanks for letting me know I left that out. :)

    My 4 yr old daughter has a brain tumor and is a patient at St. Jude. It is a remarkable place and I am so thankful for people like you who take the extra time to provide for people like us. Because of those donations, my family has a nice place to stay, good food to eat, and the best medical care while at St. Jude. On behalf of all the St. Jude parents, thank you!

    @Morgan, I am really at a loss for words, so, with tears running down my cheeks I want you to know how grateful I am that your daughter is in the very best medical hands. I will keep her in my prayers, as well as the rest of your family. May God keep you all safe and in His arms.

    I just stumbled on this article and was curious if you still had the cookbook available. Also, are all of the recipes sugar & gluten free?
    Thanks!
