Hey Everyone,

Brandon here, I just received an e-mail from Danielle (Mr. Hayden’s daughter and my Landlord), and apparently Mr. Hayden is doing better but this whole thing isn’t over yet.

For those of you who don’t know, Mr. Hayden has suffered a heart attack while he was at the school the other day. He requires surgery as one of his arteries is clogged.

They’re going to be flying Mr. Hayden out to Vancouver anywhere between 1 and 10 days to undergo surgery at the hospital there. However this process could take up to 2 weeks depending on how busy the hospital gets.

The problem is, Mr. Hayden has no way back from Vancouver! There flying him out there but he has to find his own way back. Mrs. Hayden is planning on driving down to Vancouver to pick up Mr. Hayden and bring him back, however I am looking for a different solution.

I am trying to raise anywhere from $150.00 to $250.00 for Mr. Hayden to fly back to Kelowna on West Jet Airlines to save Mrs. Hayden the chaos of driving down to Vancouver and back, especially with everything else that’s going on.

Unfortunately my budget right now is very limited, however I have been able to donate something towards this idea. I still have a ways to go though before this whole thing can happen. That’s why I need your guy’s help!

I’ve set up a fund for Mr. Hayden to fly him back though a company called Paypal (www.paypal.com). Paypal is a very secure way of doing transactions over the Internet and I am hoping that all of you can donate something. 5 bucks, 10 bucks, it doesn’t matter. Every little bit makes a difference.

Once we have reached the amount of money we need to buy the ticket, I will transfer the money in my Paypal account to my bank account, and personally give the funds to Mrs. Hayden so we can get the plane ticket.

Mr. Hayden is an amazing person and he has done so much for each and every one of us. Not only has he made a difference in our lives but he has also had a tremendous positive impact in the school. He was apparently at the school, working his but off (even though it’s summer) to prepare for next year when he had the heart attack.

Please everyone; if you can donate anything, it would make such a difference.

Please click the “donate” button below to make a donation. If you can’t pay with Paypal or don’t have a credit card and still want to make a donation, PLEASE reply back to this e-mail and I will personally stop by your house and pick up a cheque or cash.


EDIT: Someone has raised a good point. This is what they said:

it’s a good idea but don’t you think that Mrs. Hayden wants to be with
her husband while he’s in Vancouver and during the surgery? I mean,
that’s what any wife I know would do. So why would she stay here?”

And the answer to that question is yes OFCOURSE I think Mrs. Hayden would want to be with Mr. Hayden right now and when the surgery comes. What I’m saying is that Mrs. Hayden taking a long drive down to Vancouver right now and then back again, is not what she needs.

Therefore I’m increasing the amount of money needed on this fund so that we can

This would be so much less stressful for Mrs. Hayden. Please make a donation and many thanks to those of you who already have.

EDIT 2: Paypal button wasn’t working before. It is now fixed.

    Glad to see you are expanding the funds, my thoughts were that we should fly her there and them both back if we can.

    No i also know that when i say things like this i need to put my money where my mouth is. So brandon please get in touch with me, I would like to give at least 50$ to this fund!

    How much many has been raised so far?

    Godbless Dan the man
