Cody Deaner announces Yo Mobile as charity of choice for the Giv'er for Charity Campaign in November
Cody Deaner has announced the charity he will be raising money for in the month of Novemeber through the "Giv'er for Charity" campaign. He wrote the following on his Facebook page:
"I’ve decided on the charity of choice for the “Giv’er for Charity” campaign for November...
Throughout November, 100% proceeds from my #RedneckRenegade cartoon caricatures will be going to an amazing charity - The Yo Mobile.
#YoMobile was founded by Mario Dussault and is run in Timmins, Ontario. Timmins has one of the highest percentages of homelessness in the province. Mario saw a need and decided to do something about it. He bought a bus and sets it up 2 times a week to distribute warm clothes and food to the homeless during the cold winter months.
On Nov 17th, Rock Solid Wrestling will be in Timmins for an event where 100% of the proceeds will be going straight to Yo Mobile - which relies 100% on donations to operate. I’m proud to partner with Rock Solid to help this cause.
But I won’t ONLY be collecting money at this event. I’ll be collecting money at EVERY event I’m wrestling at or guest speaking at in November.
Please partner with me in this cause and help the homeless in the fine city of Timmins.
Let’s not just giv’er ... let’s GIV’ER for CHARITY!
Throughtout the month of October, Cody Deaner's "Giv'er for Charity" campaign was raising money to put bullied kids in self-defence classes.
Cody Deaner had the following to say about the October campaign on his Facebook page:
"October has come & gone and I’m happy to say that the “Giv’er for Charity” campaign has been able to raise the funds for putting bullied kids in self-defence class to $330!
The folks at Fear The Fighter have made it a priority to help #StopBullying & I’m happy to join them in their cause to get kids with low self-esteem and a low sense of self-worth involved in BJJ classes to raise their confidence and help them realize they DO MATTER and bullies to not have to have power over them.
I’m PERSONALLY picking the kids to put into self-defence programs & have heard stories from kids & parents across Canada & have reached out to some to help. But I know there are more out there. If you or someone you know would benefit from classes, please drop me a PM & we’ll see if we can help.
Thanks to everyone who has supported my “Giv’er for Charity” efforts & the #StopBullying campaign 👊

On Saturday, October 6th, Border City Wrestling celebrated their 25th Anniversary event with an Impact Wrestling "One Night Only" taping at St. Clair College in Windsor, ON. In the main event, Cody Deaner faced 3 Impact Wrestling Stars: Kongo Kong (champion), Johnny Impact, & Matt Sydal for the BCW Can-Am Championship.
At the end of the night, Cody Deaner knelt in the ring as a 2x BCW Champion after pinning Kongo Kong with a roll-up out of nowhere.
Cody had the following to say about the win on his Facebook page & Instagram:
“The title doesn’t make the man. The man makes the title.”
For 25 years Border City Wrestling has been the measuring stick in Canadian professional wrestling. As of this past Saturday’s Global Wrestling Network #OneNightOnly taping, I find myself once again as the BCW Champion.
I have been praising Canadian (and specifically Ontario) independent wrestling for literally my entire career. I have travelled far and wide and some of the best wrestling talent in the world... yes the WORLD... is right here in my backyard in Ontario, Canada.
British wrestling is getting a buzz. For years the Northeast US has had a buzz...
CANADIAN wrestling deserves a buzz. Because we have the best talent on the planet. With Border City Wrestling’s affiliation with Impact Wrestling, we are finally getting a platform to show the WORLD how amazing the talent in our country really is.
Whether I’m viewed this way by others or not... as BCW Champion, I feel like I represent the other wrestling talent in this country because BCW has proven with its deep 25 year history that it is THE company in this province & in this country.
A championship is only as meaningful as the person holding it. And this means the WORLD to me.
Time to get to work and show the WORLD how good #CanadianIndependentWrestling truly is. Time to truly GIV’ER!
Cody Deaner wrote the following on his Facebook page:
"Together we can #StopBullying...
For many months I’ve partnered with Fear The Fighter and sold their merchandise with portions of the proceeds going toward putting bullied kids in self-defence classes. I’ve decided to take it up a notch!
October is #NationalBullyingPreventionMonth ... so throughout the month of October, I’ve decided that “Giv’er for Charity” will also be raising funds for this cause and 100% OF THE PROCEEDS I raise through my campaign will go toward putting bullied kids in classes.
I’ve been told numerous heart-breaking stories from parents about what their kids go through on a daily basis. With this money, I will be finding quality BJJ & MMA gyms in those kids’ areas & putting them into programs for children. I will personally be picking kids who I have met and heard stories about. This one hits close to home.

Let’s not just giv’er guys... let’s GIV’ER FOR CHARITY!
Cody Deaner's "Giv'er for Charity" recently raised $1000 for the Every Kid Counts program at the Lansdowne Children's Centre. Cody raised the money in honour of a fan he has developed a unique bond with - Regan Anderson.
As part of the fundraiser, Cody surprised Regan by inviting her in the ring for a special presentation.
Cody had the following to say about the campaign when posting this video on his social media:
"THIS is what "Giv'er for Charity" is all about...
I started the "Giv'er for Charity" campaign at the beginning of this year. It started as a small, inspiring idea and has quickly morphed into something that is currently fueling my drive and passion for professional wrestling, and despite how cheesy this may sound ... has reignited my faith in the human race.
I started "Giv'er for Charity" because I wanted to give back to my fans. In a real and tangible way. And I wanted to use what small influence I have in the wrestling world for good in the "real" world.
When I started "Giv'er for Charity," I had the pleasure to talk with Mick Foley (who I've looked up to for YEARS as both a wrestler and someone who does absolutely amazing and inspiring work with various charities) about what I wanted to do with my charity work and he gave me some fantastic advice: "keep the focus of your contributions local." ThanksMick, I’ve taken your advice and you were absolutely right.
I've had the pleasure of not only giving back to my fans and bringing my fans into the ring to honour them (like you see here with my buddy Regan)... I've gotten to team up with them and raise money alongside them and bring awareness to causes that are near and dear to their hearts and others in the local communities I visit on a regular basis as a travelling independent professional wrestler.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the "Giv'er for Charity" campaign at some point this year. Your support has not gone unnoticed to me and the numerous organizations like the Lansdowne Children's Centre, Rumball Camp of The Deaf, The Bob Rumball Foundation for the Deaf, Special Olympics St. Thomas, Pedalling Away Age at Exeter Villa & other charities we've been able to help so far this year.
I hope this video makes your day. It sure makes mine.

And I'm happy to help the people at the Rumball Deaf Camp in anyway I can. Whether that's through financial support through the Giv'er for Charity campaign, or helping spread awareness about their amazing organization. I'm just happy to contribute in anyway I can."

For the fifth straight year, with Cody Deaner in the main event, pro wrestling sells out at the Parkhill Fall Fair.
"I look forward to this show almost more than any other event I do all year," Cody Deaner said. "It's in my hometown, which is awesome. But, even more than that, the fans here are the loudest and rowdiest fans I perform in front of all year long. I literally get swarmed and embraced by the kids on my way to the ring. It reminds me of when fans swarmed wrestlers back in the 70's and 80's. You just don't see that much anymore - pure, true emotion from the crowd. It happens every year in Parkhill. It's truly special."
Wrestling has become the main attraction at the Parkhill Fall Fair since wrestling started coming to the fair 5 years ago. Cody Deaner has main evented every event in Parkhill. Every year it sells out and it keeps getting bigger and better.
"We'll see what next year brings," Cody said. "I'm already looking forward to it."
Cody Deaner was surprised at a recent wrestling event in Rodney, Ontario when he looked out in the audience and saw a sign that said: "I travelled 3,870 miles to see Deaner."
Cody met with the fans who came from Holland after his match and took pictures with their entire family.
