The count is on! We should all have our totals in by the end of the week! Go Campbell River!
The battle continues! Campbell River Head Injury Support Society (CRHISS) is declaring war against Powel River, Courtenay and Victoria Brain Injury Support Societies in our Eighth Annual “Loonie Wars”, this is a fun way we raise community awareness about traumatic brain injuries (TBI) as well as provide funds to support our local TBI survivors. Starting Monday February 20th we are asking every resident of Campbell River to donate a loonie. The donations will be collected for a week until Feb 28h. The community that collects the most funds per capita will be declared the winner and their local Brain Injury Organization will be awarded the prestigious “Loonie War Trophy”. Last year our community showed a grand effort in support but Powell River won the Trophy. We are determined to win back the beautiful trophy this year and that’s why we need your help and support. We are again encouraging groups such as City Council, schools, service clubs, businesses, Churches and neighborhoods to get involved in the fun by challenging each other to “fight the War” by contributing their loonie(s). This event will increase the public’s knowledge of their community’s brain injury organization and the services that are provided. The money donated in each municipality stays in each community!! The Loonies will go to that community’s TBI non-profit organization to provide funding for continuation of their vital services. We’re all counting on your loonies to help us win the trophy again! Your donation (which can include all forms of monies) can be made by: putting it into the containers that will be placed in local businesses throughout Campbell River during that week; delivering it directly to our office at 591-9th Ave (under the big orange roof) or through our website www.crhead.ca. Please feel free to contact us at 250 287-4323 for other options or more information and let’s get ready to TRIUMPH over Powell River, Courtenay and Victoria!
