“Unfortunately next week I will not be able to make the Covenant House sleep out, helping to raise funds in support of our at risk youth. So this year I am donating 100% of the proceeds from my book “Take that Leap – Risking it all for what really matters” directly to Covenant House. You can purchase multiple copies of my book direct from my web site at www.nigeljbennett.com or if you live in Vancouver we can arrange a pick up just email me at nigelb@aquaguard.com Over the past three years you have supported me with donations of over $65,000 for Covenant House so lets do it again this year. Thank you so much for your continual support. A short ask video is below: http://ow.ly/bWMk30mz6Af Cheers, Nigel
