On Friday, September 19th Joel Ives, Owner of Century 21 Colonial Realty will be banished to George's Island in Halifax Harbour. Once there, he will be competing with other "exile tribes", our ticket off the island, to raise enough money so The Children's Wish Foundation can grant a wish for local children, each diagnosed with a life threatening illness. Our challenge is easy in comparison to these ten children who face the real survival challenge every day.
The name of the event is Exile Island and it is in its second year and this is the first year that a team from outside of Nova Scotia will attend. All funds raised by the "The Islanders" tribe will stay with the PEI Chapter. We will be dropped off on the Island with just our clothes on our backs and our mobile phones as we may need to raise more money while being on the Island to gain necessities such as food, water and umbrellas (if needed...I hope not!!)
Although not raising enough money may keep Joel on Exile Island, this is not a reason to not donate.
If you would like to donate to Joel as a tribe member you can go to the main page at www.exileisland.ca or direct to his own page www.exilejoel.ca - once you fill it out a tax receipt will be sent to you.
Thanks to all who donated and helping us grant a wish !
