YES BBQ in the park….. ing lot… Saturday June 19th, 2010 – 196 Brock Street June 14, 2010

The Peterborough Youth Emergency Shelter (aka YES) is having their annual fundraiser – this time as a BBQ. Nothing fancy – but we will be preparing coffee – and selling bags of coffee to help them raise money. Your support means the world – we know it’s easier to roll over and go back to bed on Saturday morning – but this organization needs you to get up and come buy a burger and a coffee!!

Saturday June 19th, 2010 from 10am – 2:30pm

Y.E.S. provides emergency housing for both youth and families without shelter, as well as other essential services including a food cupboard, help with housing and employment, life skills training and educational programs. The shelter is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Y.E.S. relies on support from the community to augment its operating budget.

Raffle tickets will also be on sale for a chance to WIN BIG – a laptop computer and printer donated by Computer Solutions “Plus”, a gas barbeque from Rona Cashway, a family health membership from the YMCA and more! Generous sponsors for the event include M & M Meats, A & W, Shopper’s Drug Mart, Millbrook Foodland and Kyoto Coffee.

Come out, bring your family and friends and enjoy some good food and family entertainment to help support our youth .

Try to remember that we don’t all have the same supports in our lives – this organization helps to level the playing field a little…

Peterborough zoo marathon June 5th, 2010 9 am May 31, 2010

Filed under: Fundraisers — Tracy @ 11:09 pm

We have been asked to be at this event and we graciously accepted! Our family have enjoyed this zoo for years, and are happy to provide coffee for the marathon runners. Onlookers and spectators have to pay (it is a fundraiser!) We will be there from 8 am (set up) until 11:30 am – possibly longer if administration allows…
come on out and support the runners… support your zoo… and have a look around while you’re there – they’ve made some fantastic changes… and great animal additions… the new splashpad is amazing… and as always – the zoo is free public access. There is a small donation box, for those that can… my favourite animals are the lemurs – what are yours?

 

Fair Fare March 6, 2010

so I ask you… what is fair? some organizations think fair is a marketing campaign.. some think fair is a concept that doesn’t have to follow the humane rules that they imply… I personally don’t think its “Fair” to line your pockets with money that’s supposed to be doing good in the world.

So today… with the help of a local missionary… Mr. Brian Nichols and I are creating fair where no fairness exists. He is walking into Zimbabwe with money and medical supplies… I admire that… so… I bought some Zimbabwe coffee… the highest quality I could find… and will donate to his efforts with a portion of the proceeds. It doesn’t go to the farm that created it… but the villages Brian visits will get badly needed medicines, and food, and water, and many other badly needed things. I am so proud to be a part of this… no advertising fees, no top heavy management fees and hefty lawyer bills… just a man, walking into a village… that wants to make things better
now…. THAT’s fair.
