Happy New Year everyone! I think 2012 was quite the year for Due South: with another awesome convention, we showed once again that what brings us together is family and friendship, and our love for a show which, at its heart, is about doing the right thing. As Constable Terry Russel told us, there's something very refreshing about people getting together to celebrate optimism! And who would have known - 14 years after the end of Due South, we even had quite a bit of new material and new stories at RCW 139: From A Million Miles! It was all over so quickly... but we had so much fun.
For a little reminder of what it was all about:
Here's to an excellent 2013!
12 November 2012
Today, we presented the second RCW 139: From A Million Miles charity donation: a cheque of $1250 to the Ottawa Humane Society (OHS). I met up with Susan Gray, Manager: Events at OHS, and had the chance to receive a tour of the society's fantastic new shelter (and also to meet quite a few cats and dogs!). This new shelter was financed entirely through sponsorships and donations, and allows the OHS to take care of over 11 000 animals per year - two thirds of those are cats. Susan mentioned that donations have significantly fallen in the last two years due to the uncertain economy, and our donation would therefore be put to extremely good use to take care of sick and homeless animals.
With this donation, the last of the money raised at RCW 139: From A Million Miles has been given to charity. Through three events since 2008, Duesers have raised more than $10 200, which has all been distributed to worthwhile causes. A huge thank you to everyone for their support to both humans and animals!
30 September 2012
On the 22nd of September, we presented the first RCW 139 charity donation for 2012: a cheque for $1250 to the Touchstone Youth Centre in Toronto. TYC is a 32-bed emergency shelter for 16 to 24-year-old homeless and at-risk youth, and the shelter is currently at full capacity and has been for a while now. Including this most recent donation, during the last four years, RCW 139 has contributed just under $4000 to TYC. The money will provide a significant contribution towards the operations of TYC - what a great cause and what a great way to spread the spirit of RCW 139 to those less fortunate!
Many thanks to all the Duesers for their contributions and to Tom for his continued support towards the RCW 139 charities and Touchstone.
We are now out of Goodie Bags, but still have quite a few mugs left. If you are interested in a great RCW 139 mug, you can order through the online store.

If you're interested in reading more about what RCW 139: From A Million Miles was about, one of our attendees, Fliss, has very kindly put together an awesome convention report/recap.
Also, we do have some 2012 mugs left - the cost is $15 (shipping included to anywhere in the world thanks to Nancy - what a great deal!). And all the money raised will go towards our RCW 139 charities, so they are for a great cause... and fun to drink from! You can now order your mug through the online store.
Finally, for anyone who is interested in a goodie bag/supporting membership package, we have some VERY limited quantities: one S, one M, and one L. The cost is $50 + shipping, once again you can order through the online store. First come, first serve!
