A story about a 12-year-old kid determined to make a difference

48 Hour Winter Camp-Out. (brrrr…)

Last March, then 11-year old Wesley camped out for 24 hours, raising close to $6,000 to aid the homeless crisis in Attawapiskat, Ontario.

This year – he’s doing it again, but this time for 48 hours.

March 16th-18th, Wesley will be camping out – raising funds and awareness for both his mission to build a playground in every remote northern community and for Shannen’s Dream

Please stop by Campark Resorts on Lundy’s Lane. We’d love to see you – and share a smore! We’ll be there from Wednesday at 4pm right up to Friday at 4pm.

We’ve just set up a ChipIn page to collect donations and pledges.

If 250 of you will donate $1.00 for every hour Wesley spends camping in the cold, he will hit his goal of $12,000.00

If you’re not comfortable donating online, please mail your cheque or money order to:

Northern Starfish c/o Wes Prankard
6283 Finlay Ave.
Niagara Falls, ON L2G 4C4

Please consider a $48.00 donation to help change the lives of children in remote northern communities. If $48.00 is too steep for you, please understand that no gift is too small.

Once the Camp-Out is over, we’ll be hosting a free celebration at Drummond Hill Presbyterian Church at 7pm on March 18th. Check here for details
