Have you ever wondered exactly what Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) does and how we do it? Our Facebook Live! Series Rise and Shine will answer those questions.


On our last episode, we celebrated Christmas at CCFC. Sharon Caddy, a CCFC volunteer ambassador, joined us to discuss her recent trip to our program areas, and we even gave a behind-the-scenes look at how CCFC employees deck the halls for the holidays.


Here’s what you missed — read about it or watch below.

At CCFC, we love to decorate for the holidays, so we gave a behind-the-scenes look at our decorating party. Listen in as an employee tells us his favourite Christmas movie. Is it Elf, Rudolph, or another great movie? Tune in to find out.
