There’s nothing worse than suddenly remembering you haven’t sold your turnips yet, but it’s too late, they’ve spoiled. Hellmanns came up with a way you could put your spoiled turnips to good use.
Hellmanns have created an island in where you could visit and drop off your unwanted spoiled turnips. For every turip they received they donated a meal to Second Harvest. This is a charity that sends out food that has not been sold before it goes to waste to a huge selection of social service organizations.
The island was being booked uo very quickly each day with slots open from 3pm-12pm, players were sending messages to Hellmans via twitter, in which they were allocated a time slot and given a dodo code so they were able to visit the island. They then dropped off their spoiled turnips when they reached the island.
It was a such a successful project, they managed to hit their goal of 25,000 meals. the project ran until August 21st in which they were overwhelemed by players contributions.
Hellmann’s Island in #ACNH is now closed. It’s time to tally up the turnips! For every spoiled turnip you dropped off on #HellmannsIsland, we’ll be donating a real meal to @SecondHarvestCA to help feed those who need it most. pic.twitter.com/zCMi3FGFo5— Hellmann’s Canada (@HellmannsCanada) August 22, 2020
The island still remains however, although you can’t donate anymore turnips you are able to visit the island through their dream address.
