A few nights ago the Calgary Hitman hockey team had a drive to collect teddy bears to send to the Children's Hospital. Fans have been known to throw hats and the occasional octopus onto the ice during games, but this is so much better.
As soon as the first Calgary goal was scored the teddy bears started raining down onto the ice - a total of 23,096 teddy bears!!
This had to be fun for the fans, and the children in the hospital will get a gift with a story on how it came to the hospital.
To me, this is the true spirit of Christmas. I'm betting that the fans felt the good feelings of giving!
