To celebrate National Donut Day I decided to hold a stand in downtown Kitchener where I sold donuts for any amount of donations given. All the proceeds were for the Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada. I left the decision of what amount each donut should be priced at to my KW neighbours.
I held my stand in front of city hall knowing many people would pass by, especially during the evening. The donuts were made fresh that day so anyone who made a donation would get the best tasting donut I could deliver. I spent the day talking about how the Children’s Wish Foundation fulfills the wishes of children diagnosed with life threatening illnesses.
During the several hours I was in front of city hall I had the obstacle of keeping the toppings on the donuts from melting. Sadly National Donut Day was 25 degrees. But after a long day I was able to sell almost all of the donuts and the rest were given to those who were in need thus given a donation to the local area.
As well as planning out the stand I had a custom banner created at a local print shop. The donuts were purchased at Norris Bakery, both small businesses located in Kitchener, Ontario.
I had a great time and received so much love and support from my community. Being able to meet more people from my town and making new connections helped me make a positive impact as Miss Waterloo Region.
