Happy Olympics everyone! I am so proud to be cheering on the Canadian Olympic’s team. As I write this, Canada is number 2 in the medal standings with 4 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 2 bronze medals. Have you been watching the Olympics? What are your favorite events?
Lesley Stowe, creator of Raincoast Crisps, is proud to be cheering on the Canadian Olympics team as well. Lesley is the lead sponsor of the Canadian Women’s Ski Jumping team.
To motivate and inspire the team, Lesley is inviting Canadians to show their support by sharing a personalized good luck message on her official social media platforms. Lesley will contribute $1 per message, to a max $5,000 to the team.
