YANA Christmas Crackers

For almost twenty years, YANA has welcomed the holiday season by making and selling Christmas Crackers in support of local children and families.

5,000 crackers have been lovingly handcrafted by volunteers and filled with the usual delights. 50 crackers have special prizes, including one with a grand prize: a unique 18Kt gold ring designed and crafted by Cavelti valued at $2,835! Thank you to Mark the Gold Guy for this generous donation and to Tim Haley from Simply Timeless for donating the appraisal.

We are incredibly grateful for our sponsors Paul Ardron and Kirk Campbell of IG Wealth Management.  Their generous support allows 100% of the proceeds of this fundraiser to be directed to accommodation and travel funding support for YANA families.

Learn to make a YANA Christmas Cracker!

Thank you to our Christmas Crackers volunteer campaign coordinator Robbie Rusk for her foresight and tireless efforts!  Social distancing measures kept us from holding our regular cracker crafting sessions in 2020.  However, Robbie and several long-time cracker crafters came forward to take supplies home and they pulled together to assemble the 5000 crackers throughout the COVID lockdown in the Spring.
