Thank you for giving the gift of adventure!
Your amazing outpouring of support ensured that publicity was off the charts for our Around the World campaign earlier this year. Because of this, one lucky resident’s story caught the attention of some movers and shakers in the world of travel. A refresher on that story:
To say that Geraldine Anderson likes polar bears is an understatement. The Misericordia Place resident’s room door is adorned with polar bears, she has a polar bear mug, framed pictures of polar bears, a polar bear blanket – you get the idea! Naturally, Geraldine’s dream destination would be to journey throughout the Arctic with special attention to Churchill.
Thanks to the amazingly generous teams at Calm Air & Lazy Bear Expeditions, Geraldine’s dreams recently came true! From October 25-28, she adventured in the Arctic, trekking the tundra keeping her eyes peeled for polar bears. We can’t thank her hosts enough for making this incredible opportunity possible – a thought she echoes with her whole heart!
I still can't believe this. My whole life I've dreamed of coming to Churchill to see the polar bears and I am so grateful to everyone who made my dreams come true. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Thank you, everyone, for your role in making dreams like this come true. Your support means the world to all of us at MHC!
