Loonie Wars return

This is a fun way to raise community awareness about traumatic brain injuries

The battle continues!

Campbell River Head Injury Support Society (CRHISS) is declaring war against Powell River Brain Injury Society in the Sixth Annual Loonie Wars.

This is a fun way to raise community awareness about traumatic brain injuries (TBI) as well as provide funds to support local TBI survivors. Starting Friday, Feb. 20 CRHISS is asking every resident of Campbell River to donate a loonie. The donations will be collected for a week until Feb 28. The community that collects the most funds per capita will be declared the winner and their local Brain Injury Organization will be awarded the prestigious Loonie War Trophy.

Last year Campbell River put in a grand effort in support and won. CRHISS is determined to keep the beautiful trophy this year and that’s why they need your help and support.

They are again encouraging groups such as City Council, schools, service clubs, businesses, churches and neighborhoods to get involved in the fun by challenging each other to “fight the War” by contributing their loonie(s). This event will increase the public’s knowledge of their community’s brain injury organization and the services that are provided. The money donated in each municipality stays in each community. The loonies will go to that community’s TBI non-profit organization to provide funding for continuation of their vital services. They’re counting on your loonies to help Campbell River win the trophy again.

Your donation (which can include all forms of monies) can be made by: putting it into the containers that will be placed in local businesses throughout Campbell River during that week; delivering it directly to the CRHISS office at 591-9th Ave (under the big orange roof) or through their website:” www.crhead.ca. Contact them at 250-287-4323 for other options or more information and get ready to triumph over Powell River.
