THANK-YOU

Another year, another AndyVent under the belt!

An amazing month of prizes thanks to generous HRM businesses, owners, Realtors, Authors, you name it. Local supporting a local cause for the 5th year.

Like them, the AndyVent would not exist without you.

Thanks to everyone who donated, shared it on Social Media or told family, friends, co-workers, even complete strangers about the Campaign. The AndyVent has ballooned into something I am extremely proud to hear others refer to as an HRM tradition.

To my prize pick up elf, Krystal, my FaceBook page wrangler / fantastic sis, Allison and Arthur at Halifax ReTales, who lets my piggyback off his site each year without fail, I extend my heartfelt gratitude.

To the fine folks at Feed Nova Scotia, who work hard 365 days a year to Feed The Need in our Province. I thank-you as well.

Keep supporting them year round, kids.

Because hunger doesn’t take a Holiday.

See you next year.

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.
