An initiative called “Drop Ah Dollar” started by SVG Consul General to Canada Fitzgerald Huggins, has netted 15000 dollars.
Huggins made the disclosure on Friday 13th January the final day of the campaign.
The initiative gave Vincentian’s a chance to contribute in a small but tangible way to the Argyle International Airport Project.
Huggins in a Facebook post said the following:
“ Today I am closing the “Drop Ah Dollar” campaign formally. I want to thank Charise Williams, Vanessa Ackee and Niasha Gordon at BOSVG for their patriotism and support. Today the final count from the bottle at the BOSVG was $1667.25 which brings the total to over $15000 since we started three years ago. I want to thank everyone who placed their trust in me and their money into those bottles and effectively has ownership of their airport”.
