I am reaching out to my friends, family, and people I have on my contact list that I have not spoken to in a while. In an attempt to try and get support with a project I am working on this year. Before you read further into this e-mail, you should know, I am looking to raise money for a charity called ( Feed My Starving Children).
OK now that we have gotten rid of the folk that are not interested in helping to feed starving kids , lets move on LOL.
I am not sure if you are aware of the project I am getting involved with yet so I am writing this to fill you in.
I have Partnered up with CFN ( Canadian Fishing Network) this season to help raise money for an incredible charity. I believe WE have come up with a unique way to involve the fishing community across the entire country. Although this is designed to involve the fishing community Canada wide, It does not exclude anyone to help out. Also if anyone feels they could contribute in any other ways not suggested below please feel free to message me your thoughts, and ideas.
As to the details of to what is happening and I’ll try to be brief ( Although if you know my writing style, then you know this won’t be brief) LOL. Basically it’s like this.
In Celebration of Canada’s 150th Anniversary this year, CFN and myself came up with an idea on how we would like to Celebrate.
The idea is as follows, in conjunction with Angling For Life, (another social media fishing group) we are trying to raise money for charity, the charity is called “Feed My Starving Children“. This charity has, in over 70 Countries world wide, helped to feed starving kids that are MOST in need, & again this is “world wide“.
So we are reaching out across Canada to all Anglers, that wish to showcase their favorite fishing experiences through CFN. and anyone willing to help out, here is how it will work.
I will go to them, (the anglers), Canada wide (and yes, you read that right). I, will, come, to, you. We are doing this to help showcase YOU, and your fishing opportunities. We will do this by filming a day, or half day, of what each angler wishes to have showcased. once filmed I will send the video clips to CFN (Canadian Fishing Network) and they will edit it and show it through their ever growing and extensive social media platforms. (https://www.facebook.com/canadianfishingnetwork/ )
The hope is to have people gain an awareness of of the charity and hopefully get them involved. As well as showcasing some of Canada’s amazing fishing opportunities, and of course the vast landscape this incredible country has.
Of course we can’t get to everyone throughout the country, so we are hand picking out some of the fisherman/woman and trying to fit them in to my schedule or time frame.
People that are interested in getting showcased need to send me a story about what their opportunity is, and why they would like to be featured. They must like both CFN’s Facebook page and my Sea’s The Day Fishing Adventures Facebook page in order to qualify. We are not necessarily looking for the best or most luxurious places, because that is not what CFN is about. CFN is about the everyday angler, the weekend Warrior’s, professional anglers alike, its about CPR ( Catch, Photo, Release), and conservation, And it’s about the passion of the Canadian fisherman and women of this country.
So in the hopes of raising money, CFN will be holding an auction throughout the summer where we have already received some amazing donations form our sponsors, from products and or services, to volunteering, to cash donations. Everyone can help by donating, Money. Or services or products to our online auction.
If you wish to donate money then you can do this easily by following the link below
I am not asking for much by the way. Just so you are aware, just $1.00 helps a great deal.
If you wish to help by donating services, or product then please get a hold of me through e-mail or you can call me at 1-343-333-2800 to discuss.
or maybe you have a great place you would like to have featured along my journey. Again get a hold of me to discuss.
So to summarize lol
In the hopes of getting anglers together Nationwide, and showcasing fishing opportunities through CFN, and with an auction with the help of our sponsors, we hope to raise money for A great charity (Feed My Starving Children), and showcase fishing opportunities, and this incredible country’s vast landscape, and this is how CFN and myself would like to Celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary.
Filming of this project has already started. we have filmed 2 episodes already and we plan on doing approx 34 separate locations throughout the country, between now and the end of October 2017. If you so choose you will be able to watch these episodes weekly starting by mid may 2017. on CFN facebook page at the following address.
https://www.facebook.com/canadianfishingnetwork/ (if we are able to showcase it in other formats then I would keep you informed of course.)
All of our sponsors will be mentioned often throughout the journey as often as we can. We will be tagging sponsors in as many posts as we can throughout many social media platforms weekly if not daily. I figured why not start right now. I would encourage everyone to have a look at the following sponsors and see the type of people that care about this great cause.
here are the sponsors facebook pages, and/or websites, we currently have on board at the moment.
