Big thank you

Katikati Advertiser - - Your Community Voice -

I want to give a shout out to the lo­cal busi­nesses that so very gen­er­ously sup­ported my ef­fort to raise money to help pay for can­cer treat­ment costs. It is nice to live in a New Zealand town where peo­ple come to­gether to sup­port oth­ers who are in need. It was a first for me to do such a thing, and my de­ci­sion to cre­ate cal­en­dars was a risky en­ter­prise as there were sub­stan­tial costs in­volved which we could well do with­out. There were also chal­lengers that I strug­gled with in the de­sign and print­ing as­pects of this ex­er­cise, but I man­aged to learn some things as I went and feel bet­ter equipped to re­peat this chal­lenge for a 2020 cal­en­dar, if I am still phys­i­cally and men­tally able to do so.

Thank you so very much to the busi­nesses that helped me pay for costs by ad­ver­tis­ing, as well as this news­pa­per (Katikati Ad­ver­tiser), Bee NZ, The Big Av­o­cado, Katikati Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Or­chard House Cafe´, Count­down, Omoko­roa Pharmacy, Av­o­cado Food & Wine Fes­ti­val, Athen­ree Homestead, Waihi Beach Christ­mas Fes­ti­val, Waihi New World, Sum­mer­set Vil­lage, and ev­ery­one who pur­chased the cal­en­dar. I did make a profit, so have more tax to pay lol. Love y’all!
