AN ANDYVENT THANK-YOU!

Another year, another AndyVent put to bed, while visions of a tall glass of wine dances in my head.

Take that, 2020.

Another incredible December full of amazing prizes provided by generous HRM businesses, owners, Realtors, Authors; you name it. Local supporting an important cause for the 7th Calendar.

Like them, the AndyVent would not exist without you. Please think about supporting local when and if you can throughout the year, especially during these challenging times.

My thanks to all of you who donated, shared the campaign on Social Media or told family, friends, co-workers, even complete strangers about the Calendar. The AndyVent has become something I am extremely proud to hear others refer to as an HRM tradition. (Especially the final night aka AndyVent Eve).

To my prize pick up volunteers/elves, Krystal & Ellen and Arthur at Halifax ReTales, who graciously allows me to piggyback off his site each year without fail, I extend my heartfelt gratitude.

To everyone at Feed Nova Scotia, who work so incredibly hard 365 days a year helping those in need in our Province; Thank-you.

Keep supporting them year round.

Because hunger doesn’t take a Holiday.

See you next year and thanks for helping Feed The Need

Andy

An AndyVent Calendar Thank-You!

It is officially Christmas Eve and entries are now closed.

Thank you.

Every donation, every entry, every like or share or retweet wasn’t just us as a community saying no to hunger; It was also us saying yes to: electricity, oil deliveries, new work boots, a kid getting a winter jacket, rent being paid, transportation, medication.

With supporting Feed Nova Scotia, you are supporting a safe and reliable place for Nova Scotians to access vital resources such as food. You are saving someone a choice between being warm and being able to eat.

Thank you to the many local businesses who generously donated gifts and made this all possible. We were overwhelmed this year with business owners from all over HRM and beyond.

Thank you, everyone, for your entries. Every name was read (we refreshed a LOT so we really did see them all!). Every like was noticed. Every comment was read. Every share and every retweet has been seen and appreciated.

We are completely amazed that you donated over $21,000 for AndyVent. We are in awe at your generosity (and also just how much you REALLY want Andy to eat pineapple.)

Here’s to next year!

Thank you.
