Ever since I begun Darrel's Playground, I have wanted it to exist not only in cyberspace, but somewhere in the physical world as well. Originally I had plans to do something at St. Joseph's Catholic School, where Darrel had attended Junior Kindergarten, but there have been several setbacks along the way, which along with the passage of time, has made that option no longer
viable. This project at Stait Park provides an excellent way to allow me to achieve some part of this dream, while helping the present and future children of my community a safe and all inclusive, barrier-free area to enjoy the outdoors.
While there will be many fundraisers for the park in the future, I would greatly appreciate you donating through me directly to the Playground's account, so that the funds will go towards getting Darrel's name on the sign.
To become a "Bronze Sponsor", we need to raise at least $3000 over the next 18 months. Every 2 months, I will transfer the money to Mr. Speers, who will then have the Township of Centre Wellington issue a Tax Receipt for all donations over $25.00, which I'll mail out to you once I receive them.
If you have any questions and/or interested in making a Donation and a Difference, please contact me:
1. Through Facebook (if currently connected to me on that site)
2. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
3. In Person (if in the Centre Wellington area)
4. PayPal available from "About Us/Fundraising" Page
