Halifax Stanfield #StayConnected December Giveaway

For many of us, this holiday season is going to be different than past years. We’re all making sacrifices to keep each other safe. We’re wearing masks, keeping our distance, and washing our hands.  

On the bright side, we can stay connected even if we’re apart from those we most want to be close to.  

This December, we encourage you to share a message of hope, joy and love about the people you miss the most, with the hashtag #StayConnected. 

Everyone who shares a story tagged #StayConnected will be entered to win a prize package that can be used when you’re ready to travel again.  

Because, at Halifax Stanfield, connecting means the world.
