Pitching In and Helping – Out Part of What This is All About!


Throughout my 10+ years of writing articles as a columnist (Wheat City Journal, Brandon Sun and currently WWW.BDNMB.ca) I’m often approached by folks who are searching for some extra coverage for an event that they are involved with planning and or organizing. Many of these said events are designed to help out charitable causes and or organizations. It has always been my pleasure to oblige as many as possible whenever time allowed. I do this because I maintain the belief that these types of events add to the greater good of our community. As a result they make our community stronger. The more people become aware of these events, the better the event and more successful the result! Another positive I take away from these requests, especially the handful I’ve already contributed to this website, is as I continue to receive these requests it shows that people actually like to keep up to date with what is going on in our community and know about all events in our community big or small. Therefore people are visiting this site which makes it all the more worthwhile to continue pecking away at the keyboard. It’s something that started out as a hobby but soon turned into a labor of love. So before I share some brief info about a local event that will help out a well deserving group, I want to put out the invitation to people who require a little extra promotional push behind any worthwhile community event that they may be involved in. Whether its charity based or otherwise, I’m here to help. Just email me at: Alwaysfrank@mymts.net

WHY REGISTER FOR A TEST DRIVE? Launched in Canada in 2010, the Drive 4UR School and Drive 4UR Community programs are Ford's pillar test drive fundraising programs. They are a fun and exciting way to engage schools and local community causes and support their fundraising efforts. Ford Dealerships partner with a local school or community organization to conduct a test drive event together. For every valid test drive completed at the event, Ford of Canada donates $20 to the cause – up to a maximum of $6,000.
