Fundraiser to provide PPEs for health-care workers

By Letter to the Editor on May 29, 2020.

I received permission from the International Development and Relief Foundation (IDRF) to make the public aware to donate to a COVID-19 fundraiser for the purpose of providing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to front-line health-care workers in Canada. IDRF has partnered with Conquer COVID-19 to accept donations that will be used to purchase PPE for Canada’s health-care community.

Donate $100-$2,500 and an income tax receipt will be issued.

The public can listen to my 12 poems on video and DVD by searching them on YouTube, Whispering North480p. I am indebted to JVR Productions 2011 and to Jack Van Rijn for producing the DVD. The poems were written in Northern Canada when I worked for mining companies from 1972-82 and my wife Lydia worked for the Saskatchewan government.
