The Easter Seals Drop Zone challenge is returning to downtown Vancouver for its 5th year this September. Participants are challenged to raise at least $1,500 for Easter Seals which will then give them the opportunity to rappel down the face of a 20-storey office building. Despite my small fear of heights I have signed up for this charitable stunt so it’s time I start my fundraising.
If you would like to see me rappel down an office building in support of Easter Seals (helping British Columbiaâ€™s children with disabilities through Easter Seals Camps and Easter Seals House) please consider donating to my campaign. When I hit the $1,500 mark I’ll be sent over the edge of the building, but not before taking a few Twitpics to share the experience with everyone else.
The theme in previous years has been to dress up in a superhero costume while doing your decent however as I’m fresh out of masks, tights, or a lasso of truth I’ll be calling upon sponsors and donors to help make my outfit. I will put the logo of any local business on my t-shirt that day should they donate a minimum of $200 toward my campaign.
Donations are done exclusively online through the Easter Seals Drop Zone system and tax receipts are given. Any other support (encouraging words, reasons why I should not be scared, etc.) are greatly appreciated.
