I contributed to the Timmies’ Children’s Foundation Camp fund, which will send more than 14,000 kids to camp this year, according to their website.
The only reason I ever had the chance to go to summer camp was because my generous Grade 8 teacher — Mr. Harris, best. teacher. ever. — ran a camp in Haliburton, Ontario, and every year he’d invite both Grade 8 classes in our small public school to his camp for a whole week (before his paying summer campers arrived).
It was such an incredible experience I think it should be part of every school curriculum at one point or another.
But since that’s not about to happen, I’m happy to contribute to the Timmies camp fund … and keep those happy campers in Timbits….
Happy Canada Day, everyone!
P.S. k.d. lang singing Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah at the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Opening Ceremonies (iTunes version). A proud Canadian moment. Enjoy!
