We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter: ‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.  I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?” My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.” Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks ‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’ It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.

Want to get fit, support a local charity and get real messy?  There is a marathon called Color Me Rad sweeping across North America.  Wear a white t-shirt and prepared to get SPLATTERED!

Money raised in this event will support a local charity (each charity varies so check out the map to find your location and what charity you will be supporting!)

There is no competition - the whole point is to have fun, show your support and get DIRTY.

2013!

It’s a bit of a slow start this year but we’re hoping it’ll be a good one.  We’ve got some ideas for how to help out around here.  But for now, there have been a lot of changes going on outside of North Star Movement.

But we won’t let that hinder progress!  Thanks for the support so far and here’s hoping for even more change and involvement in this year.

Achievement Unlocked: NHL 13 Success!

The NHL 13 Tournament was an absolute success and it couldn’t have been done without the help of volunteers and the support of people who entered in the raffle and the tournament.

On November 24th, North Star Movement teamed up with EB Games to raise money for the Children’s Hospital by holding an NHL 13 tournament for anyone wanting to hone their hockey skills, alongside with a raffle for anyone who maybe didn’t want to participate but wanted to support the hospital - and win some sweet prizes still.

Even Dr. Goodbear came along to check out the scene and say hi to everyone!

Congrats to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners of both the Kids Tournament and the Adults Tournament - and thank you to everyone who joined in to have some fun.  This is all for an important cause - in the end, everyone is a winner.

The prizes for the Kids Tournament were:

1st Place:  Winnipeg Jets hoodie, along with a copy of NHL 13 for XBox 360 and a rare limited edition of the Evander Kane sleeve for the XBox 360 case

2nd Place:   Winnipeg Jets hoodie, and a rare limited edition Evander Kane sleeve for the PS3 case

3rd Place:  DLC code for XBox Kinect games, Lego Super Heroes figure, and Angry Birds bandaids

And for the Adults Tournament:

1st Place:  250GB XBox 360 w/ Kinect with the rare limited edition of the Evander Kane sleeve for the XBox 360 case

2nd Place:  Turtle Beach Headset XP500

3rd Place:  Sleeping Dogs for PS3

We want to thank Charlene Brown and Garden City EB Games for hosting the tournament and providing the systems and games.  As well, thank you to Sears in Garden City for providing the TVs for the tournament.  To all of the volunteers who helped set up and helped things run smoothly throughout the day - thank you for working hard and having fun in the process.  It was greatly appreciated!

Thank you to Tania Gauthier of the Children’s Hospital and her volunteers for the help and getting people excited about the event.

Huge thanks to Energy 106 for broadcasting the event live!  The music was swell and got people dancing - even Dr. Goodbear was loving it!

Most importantly, thank you to everyone who has been so enthusiastic in helping and supporting the Children’s Hospital.  Thank you to everyone who donated in their own little way - every little bit helps these kids, especially around the Christmas season.

Happy Holidays and have a safe and wonderful Christmas!

If you haven’t registered for a spot in the tournament, do it soon!  There is only enough room for 160 people!

And now for prize announcements.

Thanks to support from EB Games and Microsoft, we have a brand new XBox 360 with Kinect and a Turtle Beach XP 500 headset to give away as prizes.

Remember, the tournament is on Saturday, November 24th at Garden City so be there bright and early around 10:00 a.m.  And as we’ve stated before, even if you aren’t part of the tournament, we are always accepting toys, books, and video game donations for the Children’s Hospital.

That’s all for now, folks, see you Saturday!
