“It’s no longer good enough for us to tell kids who are different that it’s going to get better. We have to make it better now, that’s every single one of us. Every teacher, every student, every adult has to step up to the plate.” – Rick Mercer
With Mercer’s rant fresh in my mind, and a great suggestion via Twitter, I chose Kids Help Phone as the benficiary of TV, eh?‘s first online charity auction, launching soon. Kids Help Phone is a free, anonymous and confidential phone and on-line professional counselling service for youth. Big or small concerns. 24/7. 365 days a year.
I’m gathering items and experiences to be auctioned off – TV related and not – and have been touched by the response so far from the friends and acquaintances I’ve reached out to already. Can you help with more?
So far the auction will include swag and autographed items from popular Canadian and American television shows, Olympic and hockey memorabilia, magazine subscriptions and autographed books, services from local businesses, and more. If you can provide an item or experience for auction in exchange for recognition and logo placement, please contact me.
All funds raised will go to Kids Help Phone.
