Welcome to my personal fundraising page for the Christie Lake Kids! This project was designed to raise money for Christie Lake Kids, a great charitable organization based in Ottawa.
Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are putting our plans on hold for this year. BUT Christie Lake Kids still needs our help and Climb for Kids continues. To keep things going we will be holding a special fundraiser on Saturday, April 18 - Step Up For Kids. You can find more information about this here. You can join us as we climb the stairs for CLK or donate to one of our pages!
Christie Lake Kids provides economically disadvantaged children from the capital region with the opportunity to participate at no cost in quality year-round community and camp programs to develop physical, artistic, and social skills, positive attitudes and personal qualities.
Be a lifter not a leaner! Help us lift the spirits of the Christie Lake children, every child should have access to these activities.
The Two Kinds of People - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
There are two kinds of people on earth to-day; Just two kinds of people, no more, I say.
Not the sinner and saint, for it's well understood, the good are half bad and the bad are half good.
Not the rich and the poor, for to rate a man's wealth, you must first know the state of his conscience and health.
Not the humble and proud, for in life's little span, who puts on vain airs is not counted a man.
Not the happy and sad, for the swift flying years, bring each man his laughter and each man his tears.
No; the two kinds of people on earth I mean, are the people who lift and the people who lean.
Wherever you go, you will find the earth's masses, are always divided in just these two classes.
And, oddly enough, you will find, too, I ween, there's only one lifter to twenty who lean.
In which class are you? Are you easing the load, of overtaxed lifters, who toil down the road?
Or are you a leaner, who lets others share your portion of labor, and worry and care?
This year our climbing team will be conquering Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa. As we train for this climb, I will be looking for donations to support Christie Lake. 100% of the funds donated will go to the Christie Lake Kids.
Thank You for your support, you will be making a difference in the life of a young Canadian. Who knows you might be contributing to the development of the next great leader, scientist, writer, inventor, athlete, etc…
