Kind Kids Club hands crafts cards for Oak Bay Lodge residents

Additional funds raised go toward gifts for the pediatric wing at Victoria General Hospital

Residents at Oak Bay Lodge get a little holiday boost for the second consecutive year thanks to the Kind Kids Club in Oak Bay.

Chloe Cameron started the club a couple years ago. This summer the small group raised $1,163 for wigs for kids.

“I want to help make the world a happier place. I started doing kind things when I was little and it felt so good that I just kept doing it,” says Chloe Cameron. “It makes me so happy to help others and doing it with my friends makes it really fun.”

Last year they made cards for all the residents and then made a day of it handing them out. Her little sister even sang a little entertainment on the day they handed out the cards.

“It made everyone so happy and was one of my favourite parts of Christmas,” Chloe said. “I’m very excited. I’m a little bit nervous too because I want it to be perfect. But I think Lucy (her little sister, 5) will sing again and that always makes people smile.”

The project grew this year, to the point where they had to limit the kids creating cards in Windsor Park Pavilion.

“It makes me feel really proud of all the kids who want to help. They’re all so kind,” Chloe said.

The youngsters crafted cards they’ll hand out to the 234 residents at Oak Bay Lodge, as well as 53 cards commissioned by the district for their annual holiday card mailout. Since the Royal Bank paid for the space, Villages Pizza provided food and Crumsby’s handed out cupcakes, all the funds raised through the cards sold to Oak Bay will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for the pediatric ward at Victoria General Hospital.
