A Vernon business looking to help the people of Humboldt Saskatchewan, says it’s had a great response to some free decals it’s been giving out.
Daryle Ehnes of Sunshine Autographics says they’ve given away hundreds of ‘Humboldt Strong’ decals.
He says people can give a donation if they want, and so far, over 800 dollars has been raised, which Ehnes will donate to the Go Fund Me account for Bronco family members.
“There’s been guys dropping 50’s in the donation jar. It’s been pretty phenomenal,” Ehnes tells Beach Radio News.
The decals will be available at their shop on 4504 31 Street until the end of business today.
You can also get one at Beach Radio at 3313 32nd Avenue.
The Go Fund Me campaign is now up to 10.8 million dollars, with donations from 124-thousand people.
A Vernon company is providing another way to show support for Humboldt and the impacted families.
Daryle Ehnes from Sunshine Autographics says they made-up some decals saying ‘Humboldt Strong’ this week, and one of his employees, George Shioshvili, put it on the back of his truck, and sent it to some friends.
“The next thing you know there is people sending him messages, ‘Hey George, where do I get these?’ That’s how it all sort of started. Then we got thinking about it this morning, and said ‘Why don’t we just do up a bunch of these decals, and make them free by donation,'” Ehnes tells Beach Radio News.
The funds raised will go to to the Go Fund Me account to help the impacted families.
“Right now, they are only available at our shop. Just swing by. They are in different colours, whatever people want. We’re just going to put a jar out, and however much money we raise, we will ship it off,” adds Ehnes.
You can get the decals at Sunshine Autographics at 4504 31st Street.
Today is ‘Jersey Day’ across Canada where people are encouraged to wear a hockey or sports jersey to show their support for Humboldt.
