This is the Most Awesome Thing A MALL DID in Vancouver in 2014

mostawesome2014 Every year Metrotown has their holiday train decked out bringing kids around the place, most local malls have Santa available for photos, and most offer gift wrapping as well. This year Kingsgate Mall in Mount Pleasant is doing something really incredible: they’ve put up a Tree of Giving that’s going to bring some joy to needy kids in the neighbourhood.

It works like this: you check the tree for a tag telling you you the age/sex of a specific kid and their special interests/what they want for Christmas. You then go and find a suitable gift, place it (unwrapped) under the Tree of Giving House with the tag attached. Their elves will ensure it’s delivered in time to create Christmas memories. By doing this, all of your bad karma that you built up laughing at the fake/satirical @kingsgatemall Twitter account will be forgiven!
