And the winner is…

First a word from our sponsor of this epic trip.

We met up today to draw the name of the lucky winner of our Save the Great Bears draw! Terry reached out to the winner today and we’re hoping to hear back soon. We should be able to announce their name next week.

In the meantime, we wanted to say good luck to everyone. And also, we can’t thank you all enough for your smiles and energy and donations.

We appreciate you. And we love seeing your love for the Great Bear Rainforest. We see you. Thank you for joining with us. No matter what individual wins this trip, graciously donated by Daniel Terry, founder of Denman Island Chocolate, I think it’s fair to say that bears will win.

That feels good to write. Bears will win.

Seeing the photos and donations and caring pour in has also shown me that our communities are made better by your support for this campaign.

How can we not see this joy for chocolate and bears and not feel inspired?

Terry told us that he’s seeing this too, “People are so engaged with this campaign. I’m still getting requests from retailers and people are really behind this. We’ve sold close to 20000 bars in the last three months, and people are asking me about the bar all of the time. People want to help. People want to save bears.”
