Christmas came early for a group of families thanks to a partnership between the Just Because Foundation and regional advocate for safe/eco-friendly cleaning, Ulti-Mate. Families were treated to a Christmas-themed celebration filled with music, laughter, food and gifts.
The Just Because Foundation (JBF) is a non-profit organisation that supports children and families of children suffering from paediatric cancer and was founded in 2007 by Noel and Chavaughn Joseph.
The organisers say the idea behind the event was to bring some holiday magic to children and their families.
The Josephs and Ulti-Mate CEO Robert Marfleet say the effort spent to treat the children and their families with an afternoon of socialising and seasonal surprises pays dividends in creating stronger, more compassionate communities.
