Whereas everything else on The Anthology’s top ten of 2010 is just plain ridiculous, number four is ridiculously heartwarming.
4. The most ridiculously heartwarming display of community: your support of Hope in Haiti. After an earthquake devastated Haiti last January, my sister Larissa, my friend Kim, and I decided to raise some much-needed funds. Thus Hope in Haiti was born. The WIZERDZ, DJ Flipout and DJ Soo performed, Barcelona hosted and no less than 37 companies sponsored the auction.
Thanks to you, we raised more than $17,000 for the Red Cross’ relief efforts in Haiti. And when matched by the Canadian government, that means more than $34,000 of aid went to the devastated country. A huge thank you to everyone who volunteered their time and talents to make it such a success: Mattie, Rica, Gregory, Rachel, Alexa, Lara, Lib, Kim, Dana, John, Rob, Sonja, Connie, KellyAnn, Michael and Mike. You guys are the best!
