Jason Cuypers of Newmarket is an inspiration and a shining example of how anyone, at any age, can make a difference.

While making plans for his 9th birthday party he asked his mother if instead of receiving gifts, he could ask his friends to make a donation to help the people of Haiti. His mother, Jennifer, was quick to get the ball rolling and sent invitations to his guests asking them to come prepared to make a donation to Haiti relief in lieu of bringing birthday gifts. His guests enjoyed a great party with a hockey theme and gave generously to The Salvation Army Haiti Relief Fund. The final total collected was an incredible $1,330!

Congratulations Jason, we are grateful to you and your guests for their generosity.
