Can Man Dan ensures no child goes without a hot meal & a gift to open up on Christmas Day
Can Man Dan nets more than 75 000 pounds of food for Edmonton's Food Bank and $75 000 in new toys for Santa's Anonymous.
Edmonton, AB – Dan Johnstone’s (AKA Can Man Dan) final winter campout of the 2019 holiday season wrapped up today as he made good on his promise that, “no child will go without a hot meal on their plate and a gift to open up on Christmas Day."
On November 21st, Johnstone announced that he would be completing four “freezing cold winter campouts” around Edmonton in hopes of raising as much food and new toy donations as possible for Edmonton’s Food Bank and Santa’s Anonymous, respectively.
For his fourth and final winter event of the season (from December 21st to December 24th at Southbrook Sobeys), Johnstone camped out for four frigid days raising 25 000 pounds of food for kids in need, bringing his total contribution to 75 000 pounds of food for Edmonton’s Food Bank and $75 000 in new toy donations for Santa’s Anonymous! While Johnstone did not hit his goal of 100 000 pounds of food and $100 000 in new toys for each organization, he is still incredibly proud of the accomplishment.
"I am absolutely thrilled by what Edmonton accomplished during the course of this campaign. I put my body on the line, completing four winter campouts around the city, and Edmonton more than delivered," said an excited Johnstone.
"This is not only a victory for the city, but it's a victory for me personally. As someone who grew up in a family that utilized the services of both organizations, seeing these numbers is really special for me. Thank you, Edmonton, for helping me keep the cycle going! Merry Christmas!"
