On behalf of all of us at Canadian Cowboy Country magazine, I would like to thank all of you for your support of the Cooper Children Trust Fund Auction. Watching this project grow as quickly as it did was truly amazing. In just 10 days, we had over 4,200 people join the group and nearly 300 donations. Together, we have raised over $123,000 for the children of Cam and Wade Cooper.
The cowboy community has allowed us the privilege to share their stories with our readers and television viewers for the past 15 years. When we witnessed the outpouring of support from this Facebook auction, it both humbled us and reinforced our belief that there is no stronger or caring community than the rodeo community, and those who live and love the western lifestyle.
On a personal note, I would like to recognize Lindsey and Dee who mentored me through my first Facebook auction. What a ride!
Thank you to everyone who shared stories and memories of Cam and Wade—it was incredible to hear how two people influenced so many. And thank you to everyone who donated, bid, and helped us spread the word. The cowboy world is one-of-a-kind and I don’t think you will ever find a group who supports and takes care of one another as we do.
Your kindness and generosity will always be remembered.
