Deer Lodge Centre Foundation News


Never too young to give W


Ryan McBride


hen a customer asked him how he planned to spend the proceeds from a summer yard sale, 8-year-old Zsigunnar


Tordarson barely paused before announcing that he would donate the money. Te answer took his mother Daina Leitold by


surprise—at first. “Tat really came out of nowhere,” she recalls.


“His father and I certainly didn’t put the idea in his head. But Zsig does have a lot of empathy for oth- ers. He’s always been unusually thoughtful about other people’s feelings. He’s a great example to us.” Zsig raised additional funds by selling iced tea


on the corner of his street. He donated a portion to Deer Lodge Centre Foundation, and another to Snowflake Place for Children and Youth, a Win- nipeg advocacy centre focusing on the needs of abused kids. He chose to support Deer Lodge Centre for a cou-


ple reasons. Last year, his 95-year-old grandmother spent more than a month at Deer Lodge recovering from a crushed vertebrae. A military history buff, he saw how Deer Lodge also supports Veterans. His great-grandfather was a Veteran. Visiting Deer Lodge got him thinking about how


technology can help people live healthier lives. But technology costs money to develop and maintain. He realized it was as important for him to support important causes as anyone else. “If I don’t,” he says, “who else will help those who are suffering?” He admits that neither summer sale was without


its challenges. Making change involved doing math (not his favourite subject), and getting the iced tea recipe just right took some trial and error. He foresees a career for himself in law enforcement, or baseball. Wherever his destiny takes him, we know he’ll make a difference for good.
