    Please help us raise $20,000 for Charity!

    Hello Hello everyone!

    Tis that time of year where we here at Wolverine get started gearing up for our busiest weekend of the year, cleaning the racks, stocking the showroom, loading mags ect. This is our...... I can't even remember anymore time blurs together here if I am being honest, it really does. Anyways, I work with some of the finest people in the business ( not to toot Mr. Wolverine's horn but it's the truth ) , and this upcoming weekend we get to all gather together and show the community who we are and why we do what we do! All of our business partners are more than happy to take part in the event and come down to friendly Manitoba and give us a hand all weekend, we make sure they are well fed every evening so don't worry.

    Every year we do a online promotion to try and raise some coin for various charitable organizations, this year we have decided to go with the Ronald McDonald House of Canada and Courageous Companions. Both are amazing orgs. and we are hoping to one up ourselves and the firearms community this year by raising not $10,000, but $20,000!!!! 100% of all proceeds from this draw will be going to these charities, break open the wallet, and enter yourself into a draw for some of the best prizes ever! There is going to be 1000x moral patches launching on the website Thursday June 22nd, they are $20.00 a piece and purchasing one enters you into a draw for a chance of 3x amazing prizes!!!! Prizes include a B&T APC223SA, a $2000.00 gift certificate for any Bushnell products. and a Savage firearm package! All of the details on the prizes are below along with some info on our days!! I hope to see everyone who can make it there, and good luck to everyone entering into the draw!!

    You can take a peek at the patches right here at the link below and bookmark the page for next Thursday!!!!

    https://www.wolverinesupplies.com/Pr...-Morale-Patch-

    This limited edition Morale Patch is your qualifying purchase to be entered into our Online Promo for Wolverine Days 2017!

    These patches will go on sale ONLINE ONLY at 9:00 A.M (CDT) on Thursday, June 22nd. They will be available exclusively online for June 22 and 23rd, and if there are any left after that, they will be available for sale in store at Wolverine Days on Saturday and Sunday (June 24 and 25).


    Specifications
    There are only 1000 patches available and it's first come first serve!

    This year we are offering THREE prizes, meaning - you will have THREE chances to win!

    Prizes Include:

    1) B&T AG APC .223 (Non-Restricted)

    2) $2000.00 Bushnell Optic Voucher

    3) Savage Arms Rifle Build

    This year, we are donating all the proceeds of this promotion to TWO charities; Ronald McDonald House Canada and Courageous Companions. All proceeds will be divided equally between the organizations. We have increased the amount of entries this year in hopes to raise $10,000.00 for BOTH CHARITIES.

    NOTE: This is open ONLY to ONLINE CUSTOMERS starting on June 22 and 23. And then, IF there are any left, patches will become available in store as well on June 24 and 25. We will count email orders...BUT...and this is a BIG BUT, we will not be checking or processing phone calls or emails all weekend long during Wolverine Days and wouldn’t be able to get to those orders until the Monday. If the 1000 patches sell out before we get to the emails that is going to be tough luck. We STRONGLY RECOMMEND ordering via the website. When the patches are completely sold out we will be announcing the results. Price does not include a $2.00 shipping cost.

    About Us
    Ronald McDonald Houses provide families of sick children with a home to stay at while their child is being treated at a nearby hospital. As well, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide a comfortable place for families to rest and recharge, right inside hospitals. And through Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles, we help to bring basic medical care to vulnerable communities. So families can stay together and kids can heal better.


    RMHC provides a home away from home for the families of seriously ill children who are staying at a nearby hospital. There are 15 Ronald McDonald Houses, 16 Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and 2 Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles across Canada. 70% of Canadians live outside a city with a children's hospital, which means that they have to travel for medical care if their child is seriously sick or injured. Ronald McDonald Houses give families the chance to stay together and close to their sick. The good news is, thanks to medical advances, children are healing more today than ever before; however, the healing journey is taking more treatments over longer periods of time, creating constant demand for Ronald McDonald Houses and Family Rooms. Today, Ronald McDonald Houses serve approximately 51% of the families of Canada's most sick and injured children. As well, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms are serving over 10,000 families right inside the hospital every year.The Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles have travelled more than 74,000 kilometres and have served more than 7,000 families in Canada. All 15 Ronald McDonald Houses offer a Home for Dinner program for families, and have served 40,762 dinners in one year alone. No home is complete without laundry and our Ronald McDonald House families did a remarkable 147,334 loads of laundry in one year. 6,000 caring volunteers and 283 dedicated staff bring Ronald McDonald Houses to life every day for our families.

    There are 13 Ronald McDonald House Charities Chapters, collectively operating 15 Houses, 16 Family Rooms and 2 Care Mobiles. Each RMHC Chapter is a community organization, independently operated as a charity. Each Chapter receives financial and in-kind support from RMHC Canada as the national foundation as well as McDonald’s Restaurants of Canada and its suppliers, in addition to generous support from individual donors, corporations, and charitable groups. Founded in 1982, RMHC Canada is honoured to be the everlasting foundation of support for Ronald McDonald Houses, Ronald McDonald Family Rooms and Ronald McDonald Care Mobiles across Canada. Since then, RMHC has helped more than 292,253 sick children and their families.

    About Service Dogs

    Service Dogs help relieve symptoms of OSIs

    Operational Stress Injuries (OSIs) include such conditions as PTSD, seizure disorders, anxiety disorders, depression, and others. At Courageous Companions we have seen service dogs significantly relieve symptoms such as anxiety, assist in easing the exhausting and often debilitating impact of flashbacks and nightmares, decrease and even eliminate the need for medications and in many cases relationships have been restored.

    Service Dogs trained for the specific needs of the individual

    Courageous Companions can raise and train an Elite Service K-9 specifically moulded to respond to the symptoms of a specific individual. Each dog is be raised in a home setting, fully socialized and live and train with future and present service dogs.

    Our training philosophy puts the well-being and care of the dog at the fore-front and is based on a 100%, all humane, non aggressive, leadership style. We use only a positive, supportive, well balanced approach which encourages the dog to bond with humans.

    Service Dog Definition

    A Service Dog is a canine specifically trained to minimize functional limitations of a person with a disability.

    Service dogs may also be referred to as assistance dogs.

    Includes but not limited to guide, mobility, medical alert, medical response, hearing, psychiatric, autism and PTSD.

    Desirable character traits include:

    good temperament or psychological make-up
    good health including physical structure
    bidability (obedience) and
    trainability

    We have found that Labrador, Poodle or Golden Retrievers or a mix of these breeds have the qualities in health, temperament, bidability, trainability and the physical ability needed.

    Ronald Mcdonald House Charities Canada is a personal favorite of mine and I was incredibly happy to be able to choose them as one of the recipient’s for this year’s donation. They helped out myself and new family and any chance to give back I grab with both hands.
    Back in 1998 I came to visit friends in Canada and within 24 hours of being here I know this is where I wanted to spend the rest of my life. In 2000 I spent all my money and finally emigrated.
    I married my girlfriend that came with me from the U.K. in 2001 and eventually in 2002 my old man had convinced me that if “I waited until I could afford to have children then I never would”.
    Our first son “Luke” was born July 8th 2003 in Brandon hospital and that was the day our lives turned upside down. We had no warning during the pregnancy that it was anything other than a normal pregnancy. As soon as Luke was born he was taken straight away from us, we never even had chance to see him. The pediatrician took me outside a few minutes later and explained that Luke was fine but he had a growth on the side of his neck and to be prepared when we saw him.
    He was our son and he was perfect to us.
    Over the course of the day there were plans made to go to Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg for diagnosis and possible surgery once it was determined exactly what we were dealing with. Accommodation was arranged for us at Ronald Mcdonald House just a few blocks from the hospital. We drove to Winnipeg (3 hours from home) on the morning of the 9th with Luke in his car seat. Once at HCS, Luke was admitted and taken straight to the neonatal intensive care unit and the tests began.
    Test results showed some alarming initial diagnosis. He had virtually no platelets (to clot blood) so blood transfusions were started straight away. To cut a long story short, he was diagnosed over the next few days with a Kaposiform Hemangioendothelioma with Kasabach-Merritt Syndrome. Basically it was a vascular tumour with 5 feeders from his carotid artery that was destroying his platelets as they passed through. Surgery was not an option and it was decided to try chemotherapy to control it.
    He started chemo at around 3 weeks old and was moved from NICU to the Cancer Care department at 6 weeks until we were allowed to take him home at 3 months.
    All this time we stayed at RMH and it was a lifesaver for us. Not only was it cost effective (we had no money back then) but the staff were fantastic and the other families helped us through the most difficult time in our lives. It truly was a home away from home.
    One incident that stands out for me from that time was walking into the house to see another father in the entrance in tears. His 2 year old daughter’s diagnosis was bad and we spent some time together that evening. Sometime after I came to the realization of how lucky we were compared to so many other. Just remember, when things seem bad, there are people who have much worse things happening to them.
    Once we got Luke home at 3 months we were down to transfusions once a week and chemo twice a week so regular trips into Winnipeg were still need but at least we had our own beds. Over the course of the year the transfusion and chemo frequency decreased and eventually his central line was removed when he was a year old.
    He is graduating from middle school to go up to high school this week and is a typical teenager annoying his mother and brothers on a regular basis. 100 % healthy.
    I cannot give enough thanks to the incredible staff at Brandon hospital (especially Dr Elves), HSC and of course RMH Winnipeg.

    Awesome story and great to hear he is doing well!

    I feel the same way about children's hospital. One of my closest friends had his son evacd to the Vancouver one and it was an experience I will never forget... we often forget what real problems are but some of the stories you hear there are some of the greatest and some of the saddest.

    Going back to that time I still remember some of the looks on parents faces and it was heartbreaking...

    I felt it was a special place... worthy of support... the people who work there have my profound respect... the place was permeated with sadness, joy and an incredible purpose...

    I support them whenever I can and just feel fortunate that my daughter hasn't needed to go there and that such a place exists because it really does show the best of our society...
    It's not about money.... It's about sending a message...

    Great stuff Wolverine Guy, thanks for sharing. I will be definitely be ordering on the 22nd. The Ronald McDonald House is a personal favorite charity of myself and my Company supports an annual shotgun shoot here in Grande Prairie that has proven to be very successful for them. I have never come in contact with Courageous Companions but I admire what they are doing and i will be glad to support them as well. Here is hoping you make your goal Wolverine Supplies!!!
