Have you ever waited in line at your favourite coffee shop only to get to the cashier and be told that someone else had paid your bill? How about rushing outside expecting to find a ticket on your windshield because you’d forgotten to pay the meter but instead, you found it paid to the max? Or, in my particular case, the time that someone gifted me a quarter the day after Alexander died.
That one gesture changed my life forever.
I’m a firm believer in the saying that “it’s better to give than receive” and I try to do my part wherever I can. I admire and support others that do the same. Not for their own benefit but for the sake of others. That’s why, when I saw Schneiders stepping up to the plate, literally and figuratively, I knew that I wanted to share it with you.
Not only because I’m a huge fan of their Country Naturals product line, which is gluten-free and contains no artificial ingredients and preservatives but also because their sausages and burgers make BBQing quick and easy. Anything that cuts down on prep time, stress and let’s me spend more time with my family gets a thumbs up in my books.
Schneiders is Changing Lives One Act of Kindness at a Time
In celebration of Baseball Day in Canada on August 10, Schneiders employees in partnership with the Toronto Blue Jays* surprised the Scarborough Stingers and North York Blues with a once-in-a-life time “big league” experience. They upgraded their baseball diamond, invited Ace the Blue Jays Mascot, had play-by-play announcers, a video production team, and brought scores of fans, Schneiders volunteers, hot dogs and sausages to make the little league game larger than life.
Grab a tissue while you watch this short video, you’re going to need it.
Seeing kids dreams come true is yet another way that Schneiders supports their community. It’s incredible how one act of kindness can have such an impact on the lives of others. Even though I wasn’t there, it gave me goosebumps. What about you?
