After seeing @evilpez4 on Twitter run with this neat idea last year in HRM I thought it would be awesome to steal borrow the format and try it here in the Annapolis Valley. The idea of this calendar is to raise money to help support a local charity or organization. If all goes well with this first attempt I’d love to make it an annual thing.

How it works is by having local businesses donate prizes which are revealed each day through the month, from December 1st to the 24th. People will donate through an online fund setup on and the full amount, minus the fees from GoFundMe, will go to the organization chosen. As a thank you, for every $5 a person donates they will get a chance to win the full set of prizes which were donated. At the end one person will be drawn and they take the whole pack of prizes.
