BALANCING ACT OF KINDNESS
While in Winnipeg last week the crew decided to have the bus tires serviced using the "Equal" tire balancing system. We then found out that Max Tire Supplies of Kitchener had donated the product for us to install in our bus. A huge thank you to Keith and Max Tire Supplies for helping to keep us rolling smoothly!
The students in the KEYS Club at Sir Robert Borden High School in Ottawa recently raised $300 for charity, and decided to donate it tothe Robb Nash team immediately after the band’s recent performance there.
"We decided to donate to your cause seconds after Robb's presentation was finished," said Zac Ramsay, club co-president. "Our school's KEY Club was looking for a local charity to support and you cause resonated with us so well. Depression, self-harm, and suicide are major issues facing the developed world and it's an issue that can't get enough awareness. The performance was the real hook. Robb was funny, the music was amazing, and his message was inspiring. Robb embodies all the values that KEY Club wishes to imbue into all of it's members. KEY Club was delighted to support such a great cause."
There's no doubt that Robb's effect on his young audience is significant. But his message hits home with school staff as well. Here's a letter of gratitiude from a teacher at Sir Robert Borden in Ottawa.

A BEACON FOR THE BUS
As we began the 2013/2014 tour we had a few major problems with the engine in our bus. Our tour manager was looking for a shop to repair an alternator while we were touring in Winnipeg, and came across Beacon Auto Electric. By the time we went to get it repaired, the owner Hans had checked out our website and felt compelled to make a significant contribution to our team! THANK YOU VERY MUCH Hans and the crew at Beacon Auto Electric!
From setting up the presentation to watching it unfold in a span of a week, I couldn’t help but feel such deep gratitude for all of those associated with the Robb Nash Project. more
