Way Back Wednesdays- Camp Day 2002

MSCampDay2002

Each year Tim Horton’s in Canada has what is known as Camp Day.  Today is Camp Day. It’s the first Wednesday in June.  All profit from their sales goes to fund Tim Horton Children’s Foundation

This quote is taken directly from their website:

THE NEED

1 in 6 children across Canada and the United States live in economically disadvantaged homes1. For these children, opportunities and environments that promote their growth into healthy individuals are often limited.

A Foundation camp experience provides programs to help these children develop lifelong skills. When they return home, they bring with them a positive attitude about their future, and the confidence to achieve goals they learned to set for themselves.

So in 2002 my wife worked for a Tim Horton restaurant in New Minas NS and through her encouragement I volunteered for the day to draw cartoon faces and give the proceeds to the charity. This was actually the start of my live caricature biz and a lead up to Christmas/Holiday window painting the following year.
