A winter fundraiser to continue the legacy of a late Port Coquitlam girl is now on until the end of January.
The Amanda Todd Legacy Society extended its deadline this week — largely because of the demand for the glass snowball ornament featured in the online campaign.
Called the Light Up and Shine Purple to Support Amanda’s Legacy during 2022, the snowballs are purple — Amanda’s favourite colour — and symbolize how her story has shone brightly around the world.
Amanda, a 15-year-old CABE student in Coquitlam, was cyberbullied for years before she took her life in 2012.
Her mother Carol said she’s heard from many people in the past month about how the Light Up snowballs are being gifted.
Still, “they aren’t just for Christmas but to support Amanda’s story,” she told the Tri-City News.
To date, the winter fundraiser has collected more than $3,400 for the society’s operations through sales and donations.
Other items available include inspiration journals, handmade charcuterie boards, books, and Snowflake pop sockets and tree decorations.
