Help Fill A Back Pack (Bear In A Bag) With Andrew Banar
Andrew Banar is a young man with Down syndrome and owner of Group Hug Apparel in Kingsville Ontario. Andrew has recently partnered with the Dollar Tree in Leamington ON for a really beautiful idea. He was so excited to meet everyone, talk about his ideas and now share them with all of you.
Andrew and the team at the Dollar Tree are looking for support from our gracious community. They need help to fill Back Packs full of wonderful items that will go to children who are sick in the hospital or receiving treatment for an illness. Andrew has health issues that relate to being born with Down syndrome and knows what it is like to be in the hospital, it’s not fun. So Andrew has made it his goal to help them feel better. He say’s, “its important to help others.” and wants to help cheer them up while they are going through their health issues.
So if you could please consider supporting Andrew and his idea of helping others, he would greatly appreciate you kindness.
Ways You Can Help Out:
During your visit to the Dollar Tree in Leamington from August 26th to September 6th, you could sponsor an item to go into a Back Pack when you check out for only $1.25 plus tax. Andrew thinks that this is pretty cool. You could also stop by to meet Andrew on Saturday August 27th from 10 – 5 and sponsor an item then. You could join in our bbq from 11-3 and get your face painted by Sunshine The Clown. Oh, and you will be entertained by the Stilts Guys (look way up) or purchase one of Andrew’s Group Hug Apparel shirts. Proceeds from this event will be supporting Andrew’s – Help Fill A Back Pack – Helping Sick Children One Shirt At A Time Campaign. Wow, and that’s just some of Andrew’s great ideas.
Here is another one for you. If you are not in our area but are still one of Andrew’s World Wide supporters, feel free to check out his Bear In A Bag gift Back Packs and consider sponsoring one. Each Back Pack will be filled with items that are hand selected by the man himself “Andrew” along with an awesome NEW stuffed animal or Toy that will go to a child on Andrew’s list of recipients to receive. Oh and Andrew will be honoured to include your name on his gift tag as a gracious sponsor.
Oh my, I cannot believe how excited Andrew is with everything that he has planned. He wanted to let you know that he has been working hard at his business since 2007 and to date he has donated over $50,000.00 towards helping others and he has set a goal to fill 50 Back Packs. Do you think he will? I hope he does with your help.
