Chris' Corner: December 2012

Caine's Cardboard Arcade - A Heartwarming Story - One of my Favourites of 2012

 This is an absolutely heartwarming video that went viral in April of 2012.  There is so much "bad" news everywhere, videos like this are good for our souls. 

It's the story of a boy, and his dream, and it becoming reality with the help of many people.  The exposure from the video has netted Caine over $200,000 in College Savings. 


If you can spare a few minutes, I challenge you to watch it and not choke up... even just a little.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and all the best for 2013.
