Tim Harris Auctions Personal Photography Collection for Make A Wish Atlantic Provinces Canada
Posted by Tim Harris — November 19, 2010
Seasons Greetings Everyone and Welcome to My Online Fundraising Auction!
As some of you know, I have set a personal challenge to climb Mount Kilimanjaro on January 4th. I expect to summit January 14th and walk off the mountain by January 16th. My ultimate goal in this challenge is to raise $50,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation Atlantic Canada. To reach this fundraising goal, I am auctioning off my extensive collection of Panoramic photographs. The online auction will run from November 17th to midnight December 3rd. As you will see, I have an impressive selection of panoramic photographs which capture the beauty and character of the province. I am fully funding my own travel, event and climb expenses ($7,000+) and 100% of all auction funds I raise will go directly to Make-A-Wish Atlantic Canada. It is my personal wish that you view and bid on the online photographs and support me in my efforts to benefit this incredibly worthwhile cause.
I have never seriously fundraised for a charity before and I find this a huge challenge in itself. My goals may appear as steep as the climb itself, but each step I take and every penny I fundraise will be worth it. I am keen, excited and overjoyed to be representing the Make-A-Wish Foundation Atlantic Canada. The Make-A-Wish Foundation Atlantic Canada identifies, organizes and grants “wishes” for children between the ages of 3-17 who have life threatening medical conditions. The organization is not-for-profit and wishes granted are funded solely by personal and corporate fundraising events and private donations. The Atlantic Chapter is currently working on granting 8 wishes and there are 8 wishes in the waiting. Wishes are as varied and personal as the children themselves. A child can wish to “be”, wish to “go”, wish to “have” or wish to “meet”...and with your support, we can share the power of granting a wish to a sick child. If you’d like more information on how this organization grants wishes to sick children and enriches this human experience with hope, strength and joy, please visit http://www.makeawish-atl.ca/
Some of you have already mentioned you are inclined to assist me in this fundraiser and I appreciate your generous support of my efforts.
In addition to the on-line auction, there are two ways to give.
