Four years ago when I started Tiny Teethers, I knew that I wanted to make Canada Day the biggest celebration of sales and giveaways of the year. July 1st is a special day for myself and my family for many reasons.
First off, it's a celebration of our country, and the biggest party of the year! I feel proud to be Canadian and I realize how fortunate I am to have been born in such a great country. Secondly, it is my son Andreas' birthday and the inspiration for starting Tiny Teethers. Dre was born almost as the clock struck midnight and the nurses at the hospital sang "Oh, Canada". Finally, it is the day that my family lost my brother in 2006 to a drunk driver (also around midnight). On a day that brings great sadness, we now have two reasons to celebrate with the most important being a little boy who has asked for a dinosaur cake and a toy campervan for his birthday this year.
This is the 3rd year we're having our Canada Day celebration sale and I wanted to share the motivation behind it.
Happy Canada Day from my family to yours,
