Remember that story about Reese and his Surrey Christmas Pyjama Drive? Well, Reese’s goal of reaching 1,000 pyjamas was surpassed!
There has been an overabundance of support for Reese, his friends, and his cause. With Brown’s Social House helping out, just one of the restaurants was able to bring in 279 pairs! But it doesn’t stop there! 308 pairs were collected from Sea of Stars Elementary School. The King of Floors donated 101 pairs to Reese’s cause!
What was even more impressive were the people who sent pyjamas from places like Shuswap and Victoria! The story had not only affected people in the community but also in other places around the province. The story was so great that people mailed Reese cards, one with a Tim Horton’s gift card attached too!
So what is the total? 1,422 pairs of pyjamas! That’s incredible! What’s even more great is that people still want to drop off pyjamas and help this amazing cause. The pyjamas were dropped off at the Surrey Christmas Bureau and the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau. Reese is kind of a celebrity, he dropped off the pyjamas to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau with the Kid Carson show on the Beat 94.5!
What’s next for Reese? Well, he’s heading back to headquarters (Tim Horton’s) with his “pyjama posse” and planning an even bigger and better next year! Reese is an amazing kid who is an inspiration to his fellow peers and to adults. Reese has shown what the true spirit of Christmas is all about.
