My family has taken a lot of vacations over the years, and discovered a lot of places to love. And one of the most fun-filled trips we ever took was to beautiful California. When people think of California, places like Hollywood, Silicon Valley and the Napa Valley wine region tend to spring to mind. But […]
It’s amazing how easy it is to take clean water for granted when it’s something that has always been a part of our lives. Growing up in North America has given me the understanding that when I turn on a tap, I can drink the water that comes out without any concern. But I did a lot of travelling in my youth and I know from exploring places like Cuba and South Africa that clean water is a luxury in many parts of the world, not a right.
In fact, approximately one billion people do not have clean drinking water, many of whom are children in the developing world. As a result, thousands of children die every day. The P&G Children’s Safe Drinking Water (CSDW) Program helps provide clean drinking water to these people through a water purifying technology developed by P&G. One small P&G purification packet quickly turns 10 litres of dirty, potentially deadly water into clean, drinkable water. Nearly 7 billion litres of clean drinking water have been provided by humanitarian organizations across the globe using P&G packets, helping to save an estimated 39,000 lives in more than 75 countries.
I do a lot of online shopping and so I’ve spent quite a bit of time figuring out how to get the best bang for my buck online. I started shopping at Walmart.ca about six months ago and it didn’t take long before I was hooked. With easy online ordering, free shipping with no minimum purchase and the same everyday low prices as my local Walmart store, I could always count on getting a great deal at Walmart.ca!
Now, the site I love has gotten even better with a recent new redesign that promises to provide a smooth shopping experience whether you’re on a tablet, a smartphone or a desktop computer. And to test out the new website, I had the chance to tackle an online shopping challenge at Walmart.ca. There are a lot of little gifts I buy each year for neighbours, teachers, babysitters and the people that work at the businesses in our small town. My go-to gift is a box of Christmas chocolates, so I decided to see if I could stock up at Walmart.ca for less than $100.
As soon as I started searching the site, I knew I had made a good decision. There isn’t a huge variety of food products on the Walmart.ca site just yet, but there are plenty of Christmas treats! I added Ferrero Rocher, Pot of Gold, Turtles, Toblerone and more to my cart and within fifteen minutes, I had everything I needed. Best of all, when I checked out, I had gifts for nine people, stocking stuffers for each of my boys and a tin of Premium Belgian Biscuits for me, all for just $90.63! [Read more…]
