Support Our Local Youth

To the residents of our community,

My name is Kelsey Holt and I am a grade 11 student at Halifax West High School, currently enrolled in the International Baccalaureate Programme. I am a resident of the Hatchet Lake area.

I am writing to tell you about my upcoming trip to Poland where I will be acting as a young Ambassador for Canada with Coalition for Kids International. I am participating in the Coalition’s Journeys for a Lifetime program. In July of 2011 I will be going on a twelve day trip to Poland with five other teenagers to grant the wishes of many terminally-ill and underprivileged children in their homes and in hospitals.

After hearing about the extraordinary work that the Coalition does, and their commitment to children, I had no doubt that this was the perfect trip for me to participate in. Not only will it be a life-changing experience for me and the children I will help, it will be a great way to better myself and represent our community. I am seeking sponsors to help make this possible.

In order to participate in this exciting program I must raise $3900 towards the cost of the trip.  The Coalition has several methods that I can use to support my own sponsorship endeavours …

  • Individual sponsors who support me will receive a complimentary copy of the Coalition’s 4-track Single and Music Video CD-ROM “Flight of Angels”. Recorded in London's Library Studios, by a collection of amazing artists and musicians, who all contributed their time, anonymously, to record and film the song as a reminder to everyone that each time a Coalition kid "takes off" to grant the wishes of terminally-ill and underprivileged children, they are taking a 'flight of angels'.
  • Company sponsors who support me by contributing a minimum of $50 will have their logo and web-link displayed on the Coalition’s website for one year. Companies will receive an invoice for advertising which is a deductible business expense. Companies can send their logo to my email which I will forward to the Coalition.

More information about Coalition for Kids International and Journeys for a Lifetime can be found by visiting and I can be reached by contacting the BCHA. I would be pleased to meet with you in person at any time to tell you more about the Coalition and my trip.

Thank you for your consideration!
Kelsey Holt ☺

Thank You For Helping Brookside Stand Out!

Thank you to everyone who joined in the community cleanup on Saturday!  The weather cooperated and we were able to gather up much of the winter debris from the ditches and parks. If you weren't able to join us on the weekend, don't let that stop you!  Take a garbage bag with you on your evening walk... there are many areas still needing some TLC.  The community thanks you!
