Global Calgary’s Morning of Giving in Support of The Magic of Christmas

morning of giving

Join us in celebrating The Magic of Christmas by supporting the Morning of Giving. This is a tradition that Global TV has been following for many years.  I am proud to be featured in the advertisement from a photo taken of me with Santa and my granddaughter, Florence.

Rather than being hosted at Global Calgary studios, Global News Calgary’s Leslie Horton, who created the Morning of Giving initiative, and the Magic of Christmas crew will be heading downtown to the Core Shopping Center for the eighth annual Morning of Giving.

When:  December 13, 2023 from 6:00 to 9:00 am
Where:  Core Shopping Center - 324 8 Ave SW, Calgary, AB T2P 2Z2 

We also have a donation box setup outside our office door where you can drop off your items. We will make sure that all donations are delivered to the event.

Drop Off:  The Travel Lady Office

Suite 214 – 755 Lake Bonavista Drive SE
Calgary AB T2J 0N3

What:  Donate a new, unwrapped gift - see wish list below
