Gord Downie and the Tragically Hip have meant a lot to many people among our friends and family. This fall Scott's brother Dave Ouderkirk asked him to create pieces for an auction benefiting Courage for Gord, which donates to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research. Scott really enjoyed creating these and giving back to a important cause, so after the auction was complete we decided to create more one of a kind snowmen inspired the Gord and the Hip, and donate $5.00 of each purchase to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research. With the help of our Etsy customers, we were able to donate to the fund and have just completed several more hand painted snowmen. We've decided to increase the amount donated of each purchase to $8.00. We really appreciate our customers helping us to give back to this meaningful cause.
