Cody Deaner's "Giv'er for Charity" raises $500 to feed and clothe the homeless in Timmins, ON through Yo Mobile!
Throughout the month of November and the first weekend of December 2018, Cody Deaner's "Giv'er for Charity" campaign made its way to various independent wrestling events across the province of Ontario. At each event, Deaner sold his "Redneck Renegade" caricatures to donate 100% of the money to Yo Mobile - a bus that hands out food and clothes to the homeless in Timmins, ON.
Timmins has one of the highest rates of homelessness in the province. And, they have been hit extra hard this season as their homeless shelter experienced a major fire.
Cody had the following to say about the fundraiser on his Facebook page:
"I got two words for ya... THANK YOU!
After extending the “Giv’er for Charity” fundraiser for Yo Mobile to this past weekend... with all the generous donations that came in this weekend added to the original fundraiser at Rock Solid Wrestling... I’ve been able to collect $500 to send to the folks at #YoMobile to help feed and clothe the homeless in Timmins, Ontario this holiday season.
Thank you to all of the amazing wrestling fans who bought my #RedneckRenegade caricatures & donated extra $ on top of your purchase. The homeless in Timmins are in desperate need this winter due to a fire at their shelter. And I know the wonderful folks at #YoMobile will make this donation go a long way. 👍
THANK YOU to everyone who doesn’t only giv’er... but makes sure to GIV’ER for CHARITY! "

On November 21st, 2018, Cody Deaner visited two different elementary school in the London Catholic District School Board - Monsignor Morrison in St. Thomas, ON & Assumption in Aylmer, ON.
Cody Deaner brought his message of "Dare to Dream BIG" to the schools to teach the kids that even though they might live in a small town... that doesn't mean their dreams have to be small too.
Cody wrote the following about his visit to the schools on his Facebook page:
"It meant a lot to me yesterday to visit my old stompin’ grounds of Aylmer, Ontario & speak to the kids at Assumption Catholic School Aylmer at London District Catholic School Board.
As a kid who grew up in #Aylmer, played basketball in that very gymnasium & has travelled to some pretty amazing places doing what I love... it was important to me to tell the kids that just because they live in a small town, that doesn’t mean they can’t #dreamBIG.
A big thanks to all the staff & students at #AssumptionCatholicSchool... you guys rock!"
Cody's visit to Assumption held some special significance to him when he was told about the immense impact he had on one young girl who watched his talk.
Cody wrote about this unique story on his Facebook page:
"I was told a very satisfying story tonight...
Last week I spoke at two awesome elementary schools: Monsignor Morrison School & Assumption Catholic School Aylmer in London District Catholic School Board.
A young girl from Assumption went home after I spoke there and excitedly told her mother: “Mom! I met a real life wrestler today!”
Mom: “That’s nice, honey.”
Young girl: “And he told us that we can be whatever we want to be and be amazing at anything we want... IF we try REALLY HARD.”
Mom: “Is that so, honey?”
Young girl: “Yes! So, I’m going to keep trying really hard at ringette mom. And I’m going to be amazing at it! And when I grow up... I’m going to be a ringette player!”
As a motivational speaker, I don’t often get to follow-up with the kids I speak to. In this case, I was speaking to kids in the town I grew up in. So, I had many special connections to the community and the kids.
I’m extremely grateful this story made it to me. To say it made my day is an understatement."
Cody is currently travelling across Canada as both a professional wrestler and motivational speaker. More information on his speaking can be found HERE.

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!
