A Christmas miracle can happen and does on the West Island. It seems no matter when someone reaches out there is a hand there to lift us up. We are truly blessed to live in such a wonderfully tight-knit community that is so generous.
Jasen Bolanis, a West Islander since birth, decided he wanted to get into the Christmas/Hanukah spirit and offered to deliver candy cane ice cream from Provigo. Much to my surprise, this product flies off the shelves and is not available all that long.
Here is what Pamela Jesty had to say once she received her special delivery from Jason, Santa’s West Island Elf…..
Earlier today, I was at Provigo and wandered to the frozen section in the hopes of finding the President’s Choice Candy Cane ice cream I enjoy every Christmas (and usually miss out on because it sells out so quickly). To my delight, it was in stock, but because I was heading back to work and park in a heated garage…I passed, texting my daughter (equally smitten as I with the ice cream) that I found it and we would get some this year.
Later on, I log in to FB and see on my feed a post in the West Island page from Jason Bolanis asking West Islanders if they loved Presidents Choice Candy Cane ice cream and if so, would they like a home delivery……hmm…well sign me up please, what is this, a Christmas miracle?!!
So my secret Santa, Saint Jason Bolanis, true to his word, pulled in my driveway, ice cream in hand. He wanted to give me two tubs, but I sent him down the road to Catherine Jones to share his delightful treat.
I’m grinning ear to ear from this warm-hearted stranger’s quirky offer and the fun coincidence of it all happening on a cold and stormy day. My waning Christmas spirit is restored. Jason didn’t want anything,but mentioned wishing he had time to plan to somehow benefit a women’s shelter so tonight I donated on behalf of Jason Bolanis (and you can too if this story touched your heart and you need a little Christmas spirit).http://wiws.ca/ Merry Christmas!!
