HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL, NEAR AND FAR...


We wish everyone a very merry holiday season and a happy and healthy new year. Here's to a brighter 2021 for all. But before we turn the page on 2020, we are pleased to end the year on a positive note here in our bookstore community. This is the BEST kind of holiday newsletter because we're so thankful to be able to share a good news story today. This morning Chris and I, along with our three daughters, were able to drop off a cheque to Linda Caron and Jory Pritchard-Kerr of the Collingwood General and Marine Hospital Foundation with 100% of the proceeds generated from Curiosity House Books' Holiday Hospital Raffle. We were able to do this today because of you and your generosity. We have the best bookstore community. SERIOUSLY. You purchased raffle tickets upon raffle tickets, spread the word, and in 3 short weeks we sold 225 tickets! In addition to tickets sold, there were top-up donations, so in total, the raffle generated over $2800 for the hospital to help in their fundraising goal of acquiring a new digital X-Ray machine. Every little bit helps. A state-of-the-art Fluoroscopy & Digital X-ray machine will continue to help the CGMH Imaging team to not only diagnose a fracture, but also perform minimally invasive procedures, such as barium contrast exams and joint and spine injections. It will also allow doctors to continue to accurately see how well patients are responding to treatment or detect and treat an illness like cancer in many areas of the body, such as stomach, intestines, kidneys, heart or lungs. We can't thank you enough for your support and for making the raffle a huge success. THANK YOU! Happy Holidays from all of us to all of you. Looking forward to seeing you in 2021. Best, Chris and Rina and family December 30, 2020
