Whether you live in Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Halifax, Montreal, Fredericton, St. John’s, Charlottetown, Regina, or anywhere in-between, there’s always a place you can stop by to claim freebies on your birthday.
My son recently received a Pizza Pizza birthday gift in the mail for his 5th birthday, and boy, was he super-pumped!! A slice of pepperoni pizza and milk…yum-yum!
