Mr. February in the 2015 Hall of Flame Calendar has chosen Kid Sport as his charity in the Donation Challenge.“Being involved with sport teaches kids more than being competitive; it shows discipline, sacrifice, dedication, and community."

Mr. February has chosen KidSport Vancouver as his charity in the first-ever Hall of Flame Calendar Donation Challenge.

“They help kids who cannot afford to play sports. This is important to me as I was affected by financial troubles growing up with a single parent and a younger brother,” Shane says. “Being involved with sport teaches kids more than being competitive; it shows discipline, sacrifice, dedication, community and communication skills. Sport has been a huge contributor to a lot of the skills and values I have today, and for that reason I think this is a great charity. It not only keeps kids active, it teaches life skills.”

Shane is 33 years old and has been a firefighter for three years. He works for the Vancouver Fire Department.

Half the money Shane raises in this crowdfunding campaign will be donated to KidSport Vancouver. The other half goes to the Vancouver Firefighters’ Charitable Society, which will donate the money to traditional Hall of Flame Calendar beneficiaries, such as BC Children's Hospital, the Burn Fund and CKNW Orphans Fund. You will be issued an official charitable donation tax receipt.

However, if Shane wins the Donation Challenge by raising the most money, all of the donations to his campaign will go towards helping KidSport get more children involved in sports.

Your donation helps him raise money for this worthwhile cause — and perhaps win the challenge! But you can also help by sharing a link to this campaign with your friends and on social media. It’s easy: when you make a donation, you will be asked if you want to share a message about why you donated to Shane’s charity on Facebook and other social media sites. Please say yes and help a child play sports!
