Connecting Countries would like to extend a large thank you to the participants of the 2014 Tackles for Toilets fundraiser that took place on Friday, November 7th, 2014. Special apprecation goes out to those who donated tickets so that youth in the Toronto District School Board’s Boys 2 Men program were able to attend the event.
In case you missed it, the Ottawa Sun had a write up on Tackles for Toilets spokesperson, the Ottawa RedBlacks’ Jason Pottinger and his efforts on & off the field.
“It’s very important for people to help locally, but at the same time it’s important to recognize how privileged we are,” said Pottinger. “We just take it granted the way we live, having sanitary washroom facilities wherever we go; in Kenya, they don’t have that. We have a responsibility to take it upon ourselves to ensure people get a fair shot at education in other countries.”
