Camp Day at Tim Horton's!

Posted by Adam Kertesz

On a personal note, today is my single favourite fund raising day of the year. It's Tim Horton's Camp Day. For those unfamiliar with it, here's a little description of this awesome day, taken off their website:

What One Cup of Coffee Can Do

Every time a customer buys a coffee at Tim Hortons on Camp Day they will help send close to 14,000 kids - who could otherwise not afford it - on the camping adventure of a lifetime. All children who attend one of the Foundation's six camps are selected from within the communities where Tim Hortons stores are located. Tim Hortons Store Owners work closely with local youth organizations and schools to select children, between the ages of nine and 12, to attend a 10-day summer camp session or seven day winter camp session.

"By purchasing a coffee on Camp Day, our customers give kids, who live in their very own community, an opportunity to experience a camping adventure that will inspire them for years to come," says Bill Moir, President, Tim Horton Children's Foundation. "Together we can continue to foster within thousands of children the quest for a brighter future."

I attended some form of camp (first day camp, then overnight camp) from the age of 6 all the way until I was 24 years old, so you could imagine how close to home this type of initiative is for me. Camp is a truly remarkable experience that without question played the biggest role for me personally in shaping who I am today. Where else do children get the opportunity to play every day with kids their age, and have daily access to such awesome activities like waterskiing, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, arts and crafts, horseback riding, archery, dance, basketball, soccer, baseball, and hockey (just to name a few!) Some of my closest friends today are friends that I met at camp. It is a place where incredible growth can take for every child that attends, and it is where children can best learn to be independent- a key building block in the character development of a child.

Today is the day where simply buying a coffee can help send kids to camp who otherwise might never have attended. Please take some time out of your day and buy yourself (or the guy behind you!) a coffee. You will be changing a child's life.

Help Support an Important Cause (JDRF)

posted by: Mitch Zeltzer

Today's blog entry is really a call for support...

This is Corey's nephew, James. He was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes when he was only 2 years old. He is now a little over 3 and continues to deal with the day to day challenges.

This little boy inspired us, at Dynamix, to make JDRF the youth charity we are raising money and building awareness for this year.

Through the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes we are uniting with communities across Canada to help find a cure for diabetes. This event is our opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of over 240,000 Canadians living with type 1 diabetes.

As a team we are trying to raise as much money as we possibly can for this great organization. I have set a personal goal to raise $2000.00 before the walk, which takes place on June 14th. It won't be easy to reach my goal, but I'm hoping I can count on everyone's support. There is no minimum to donate and every penny counts!

The organizers have made it very easy to donate, simply click the link below to make your pledge now.

For more information on Juvenile Diabetes, go to the JDRF website to watch a very informative video.

Thank you so much for your generous support!

Feel free to forward this message along to your generous friends!! Together we can all make a difference.

All the best,
