Thank you to all who attended our Christmas open house and fundraiser event on the 9th and 10th of December. Chris and I are immensely grateful for the support you showed us with your presence and your Christmas joy, and of course with your purchases that continue to make our art work and our business possible.
This year you also helped us raise an incredible $2035 for The Foodbank of Waterloo Region as well as a number of food donations to our food drive, all amounting to over 4000 meals for families in our community!
I am so deeply disheartened to hear about the vast numbers of people in Waterloo Region and in our country at large who are currently depending of local food banks for the most basic supplies to survive, but your help this season brought me hope, and comfort to all who will receive your gifts via our food bank. These are the kinds of gifts that truly contain the meaning of Christmas; the light in dark times that guides us towards love and care for others.
This year's donation doubled our donation from last year and i will be thinking strategically in the coming months about how to exceed this year's $2035 at next year's event.
Our great thanks to the Waterloo Potters' Workshop members who donated their pottery for sale in our event. With out them ,this wouldn't have been possible.
