We're ready... And so are you!!!

We're ready to navigate the streets of Calgary, Okotoks, Cochrane, Airdire and Strathmore to pick-up all your gently used sporting equipment for kids in need this holiday season!

MINI Deeds, my All4 All-Wheel-Drive MINI Countryman from MINI Crowfoot, and I are driving around Calgary picking-up all the sporting equipment you can imagine!

On Friday, October 5th, we asked listeners to stop by Talisman Centre between 5pm and 7pm to drop off all their gently used sporting equipment... And I have to say that we had a pretty good response!

We started by just parking just outside of their main doors

In the span of 2 hours we had this!

7 pairs of skates, 2 pairs of snow boots, 1 goalie bag with all the gear, 3 sets of hockey gear, 1 pair of skis, 1 hockey stick, 1 bag with karate gear and 1 pair of hiking poles.

Impressive, eh? The KooL part about it is that we're not done yet!!! We're going to be back at Talisman Centre on October 19 again from 5pm until 7pm! So, please make sure you go to your garage or storage locker and grab any item that your children have grown out off, the raquet that you never had a chance to use, those skates that didn't fit just right and drop off for us to take them away to someone that will put them to good use.

We're back at it!!!

Start dusting off all your gently used sporting equipment for your garage and from your storage closet!

It's time to reach in under your bed and grab that old tennis racquet or hockey stick that you said you were going to use but just never got a chance to do so and set it aside for MINI Deeds, my ALL4, All-wheel-drive MINI Countryman from MINI Crowfoot, send me an email to and let us know when would it work better for your schedule for us to come by to pick them up and we'll be more than happy to do so!

There's no item to big, we've actually had a few bikes in the MINI already, or too small, a pair of hockey skates will bring the biggest smile to a kid, that we can't pick-up! And you have to keep in mind, that for every item that you donate, your name will be entered into a draw to win an Annual Adult Family Membership to Talisman Centre! This prize is worth over $1,200 dollars!!!

So, get on it! If you wanted to clear up some space in your garage but had no idea on what to do with some of the items taking up some space, this is the time to do so and to make sure those items go to a good cause.

And If you just don't feel ok about me dropping by your house to pick-up your donations you can also drop them off with me at Talisman Centre on October 19, November 2, November 16, November 30 and December 7 from 5pm until 7pm!
