Close to $100k raised through Dean’s #NovaScotiaStrong fundraiser

MIDDLE MUSQUODOBOIT: Nova Scotia Strong indeed.

In a post on Facebook, Karen Dean with Countryfied Clothing, announced the final tally raised from the sale of her t-shirts she designed with the slogan #NovaScotiaStrong in support of the 22 victims killed in the mass shooting in April.

She donated $96,000 to the Stronger Together Nova Scotia fund administered by the Canadian Red Cross.

“Thank you to everyone who supported this fundraiser,” Dean said on the post. “A huge thank you to my friend, Kim Parker, who was a phenomenal help with the fundraiser.

“I wouldn’t have been able to do it without her and the help of many other friends and, of course, my children.”

Dean said she could hear her friend Gina Goulet, one of the 22 victims from the April mass shooting, cheering her on.

“She was the inspiration for all of this,” said Dean. “She is missed by many.”
