In just a few minutes I’ll be heading to the Pan Pacific for the annual Christmas Wish Breakfast.

It’s become a tradition of giving in Vancouver where everyone is invited to come down, bring an unwrapped toy between 6:00am and 9:00am and enjoy a complimentary breakfast. In case you don’t have time to come in for a meal, there is also a drop off “express lane” open where you can still donate and receive a donut to go.
