Received a text message from Ron from Erin that another incredible “The Ring Finders” team Steve Zmd recommended me to assist in finding lost truck & tractor keys in my own town!!
Ron was on his lawn tractor cutting 2 acres of grass. He was rushing to finish the grass before dark. After he finished cutting the grass he reached into his pocket and his truck & tractor keys where gone. He searched his property and could not locate them. Lucky he had a back up set of keys to his truck.
I decided to grid the outer portions of the 2 acres using my Minelab Excalibur 2 on ‘pinpoint/all metal mode’. With-in 40 minutes and many darn mosquito bites….I LOCATED THEM!!
He’s one happy camper as it’s pricey to purchase a new set of keys!! Thank you Steve Zmd for the recommendation AGAIN XO
For the last 11 years I have been a participant in the “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation Snow Run”. February 4th, 2018 was the 19th Annual Snow Run event. Woman only snowmobiling ride raising much needed donations for this amazing Charity.
Every year I try to think up ways to raise donations to out due my previous years fundraising attempts without asking my dear Friends, Family and Co-Workers every year…
You see…here’s a little bit about the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation….
The Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation was established to help women/men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. There are many unforeseen expenses they may face, and which their health insurance program may not cover.
Our mission is to provide financial assistance to women/men in these situations in order to make their fight with cancer a little less challenging.
If you are diagnosed with breast cancer and need our assistance please go to www.kellyshiresfoundation.org and find out more on how we can help you. Our policy and application for financial assistance can be found under the heading “Need Financial Assistance”. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
I try my very best….but in 2017 and 2018 I resorted to my metal detecting skills and decided that through my “The Ring Finders” call outs….I’ll use my PASSION & SKILLS for metal detecting and make my “CLIENTS” …PAY-IT-FORWARD!! I ask for my call-out feed to cover my fuel and a meal…then when I recover the clients lost item…I ask them to “PAY-IT-FORWARD” by making a donation through my fundraising page to the Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation.
I really was blown away as you see my this video (as I was doing a live broadcast) that I won this incredible “Kelly Shires Award” for the most INNOVATED WAY OF RAISING DONATIONS FOR THIS CHARITY!!! Out of the $3,600 donations (my highest amount fund raising in the last 11 years participation) I RAISED $2,600 DIRECTLY THROUGH MY RING FINDERS CLIENTS!!! S-T-O-K-E-D & HONOURED I WAS!! In 2017 I raised $1,850 dollars metal detecting.
Here is the link to the video for the award! I was truly in shock but very honoured;
So…I am heading into my 11th year in participating at the 20th annual KELLY SHIRES BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION!! and again…will be insisting my RING FINDER CLIENTS to “PAY-IT-FORWARD”!!
I received a phone call while nearing the end of my Summer Vacation week when I received a phone call from Himanshu. He was playing volleyball at the private compound of President’s Choice HQ in Brampton, Ontario. They had weekly volleyball matches. One of his team mates had said “you should take your ring off in case you lose it”…..
He was practicing prior to the match and sure enough…he lost it. I arrived a few hours prior to the start of the first match. Started a grid pattern from the serving line. One half of the court completed…no ring. Lots of clad coins and sharp thin copper wire pieces. Started on the other side of the court…3rd pass and BAAM…there was his 21k Platinum wedding band. Very special to him as it was India gold. We managed to capture the recovery on video!
One happy camper!!!
Himanshu was kind enough to make a donation to my charity “Kelly Shires Breast Cancer Foundation” in which I am sledding in my 9th consecutive year raising donations for men & woman fighting breast cancer!! “PAYING IT FORWARD”…awesome, everyone WINS!!
