3000 Members Contest

We did it!
We began the Stuff To Do With Your Kids In Kitchener Waterloo facebook group several years ago.  We saw a need for it and since then it has grown into a blog, a source for events, restaurant reviews, contests, media coverage and an ambassadorship for Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution.  Last week we became 3000 members strong on our facebook group and to celebrate we are holding a contest!

As you can see from the image above we put out a call for prizes! The response was overwhelming and we appreciate these businesses regarding us as resource for the community!
