EBAY AUCTIONS FOR THE AFRICAN WELL FUND, CANADIAN HEART AND STROKE FOUNDATION AND SHOES FOR PORTERS

image

The items listed below was the result of my lego4africa.ca project that started in the fall of 2012. I wanted to trade a mountain climber lego-man for items of higher value that will hopefully get me 2 return plane tickets to Tanzania. I want to there to see the wells I helped build with the African Well Fund in 2012 and climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

Because I have raised enough money to go Africa I am now auctioning off the donated NHL and Hockey Canada swag. The money received for all of these items will go towards two different organizations.

1. The Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation

2. The African Well Fund.

I also plan to buy hiking shoes for the porters helping us climb Mt. Kilimanjaro who do not have great footwear.

RECYCLING STOLEN + JERRY NEVILLE = AMAZING RESPONSE

Last Wednesday, me and my dad were out training for our possible climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. We went to look at the bin of recycling that was donated by Denesoline to my school Sister Mary Phillips. What we found was an empty recycling container, garbage and no recycling. This recycling would of brought 1000 dollars to my Africa trip.

The recycling bin that was broken into.

I saw what had happened and got angry at the people who did this. But then I thought maybe people should know what happened. I got home and tweeted and posted on facebook and instantly got support from a lot of people in Fort McMurray. One of the supporters was Country 93.3 morning host Jerry Neville. He told my story on air which caused people to want to help by donating their recycling or donating money. Because of this I decided to have a bottle/plastic drive on Saturday, July 19th between 11-2 at Sister Mary Phillips School. Hertz Car Rental donated a CUBE VAN that was used to pick up and bring the recycling to the depot.  A lot of people visited and donated and by the end of the weekend I have raised over $3800!!!!!

So I want to say THANK YOU to Country 93.3 and JERRY NEVILLE for everything. Also to everyone on Twitter and facebook and in Fort McMurray for donating. You turned a sad thing into an AWESOME THING! Nathaniel <(^_^)>

THANK YOU TIM REID, MACDONALD ISLAND AND STAFF AND EDMONTON ESKIMOS!

Today Macdonald Island announced that in the Northern Kickoff The Edmonton Eskimos and Saskatchewan Roughriders will be playing at the grand opening of SMS Stadium on June 13. 2015!!!

A few weeks ago Tim Reid (head of Macdonald Island)  told me to be there a very important announcement. I tried to find out what it was but no one would tell me. After 2 weeks of waiting I went and my met friend Theresa Wells and Adam Hardiman (both work at MI) who looked at me weird. I kinda knew something was up with all the Eskimos logos but didn’t know what the “big surprise” was.

Then Tim came over and told me that after the press conference that something would be given to me then at a later date something else will be too! BUt during the press conference in front of a lot of news people and other people there he called me up spoke about my “lego4africa” project and gave me an eskimos fan package (shirt, hat, seat warmer) and the first jersey and tickets on the 50 yard line to the NORTHERN KICKOFF!!! I then had my picture taken with the head of the Edmonton Eskimos, Tim and stood in line with my friend Mayor Melissa Blake. I was very happy and excited!

Now I am deciding what to do with this stuff.. but when I do I’ll post it here. It was a very good day and THANK YOU to everyone for making this possible. :D <(^_^)>
