Keychain campaign in high gear

To the editor:

New Years is a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. For TB Vets Charitable Foundation, it signals the launch of our biggest annual fund-raiser, our Keytag Campaign.

In the final days of 2007, Canada Post picked up more than 350,000 TB Vets Keytags and will distribute them in early January to our valued supporters throughout British Columbia. Your keytags should be arriving any day.

Since 1946, TB Vets has returned almost 200,000 sets of lost keys to their rightful owners. And through the generosity of our donors, we have been able to give back over $10 million to B.C. communities.

People in respiratory distress receive immediate and often lifesaving results from the financial support we provide. TB Vets Charitable Foundation provides funding for respiratory equipment for B.C. hospitals, research into cures and treatment of TB and other respiratory diseases, and education of tomorrow’s respiratory therapists.

If you would like to donate or be put on the TB Vets Keytag mailing list, please contact us at 1-888-874-5626. For more information on TB Vets please visit our website at www.tbvets.org.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported TB Vets throughout the years. Your generous donations help fellow British Columbians breathe.

Ron Goyette,

executive director,

TB Vets Charitable Foundation
