Andrew spent much of 2008 volunteering for Amnesty International. He was a Committee Chair for an annual fundraiser entitled “Taste for Justice”. Andrew was responsible for much of the planning, marketing and implementation of the restaurant campaign which raised money to help stop violence against women. Under his leadership, “Taste for Justice” gained the most media coverage and raised the most donations in the campaign’s history. Andrew has also volunteered and raised money for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind and WWF-Canada. He is currently studying to be bilingual.
