‘For eighty-million years birds have ruled the skies, seas, earth. Each spring, they fly vast distances. Each fall, they fly the same route back. This film is the result of 4 years following their amazing odysseys, in the northern hemisphere and then the south; species by species, flying over seas – continents.’ – Jacques Perrin, Director

About Jack’s Kids – Kosovo Kids In Need …

An EPS detective, along with two other officers who are stationed in Kosovo are initiating a fund raising effort to help children in need in that war torn country. The Emergency Services Credit Union is helping to make this possible by setting up an account to accept donations. The officers involved are Detective Jack Kraus of the EPS, Dave Zack (Comox RCMP) and Burt VEENENDAAL (Ontario Provincial Police).

The money raised through the “Jack’s Kids In Kosovo” campaign would be used to buy food, clothing, school supplies and play ground equipment among other things. The children they would be assisting live in Kosovo (Podujevo, Pristina & Gracanica). Emergency Services Credit Union launched the effort by making the first donation, a cheque for $500. Once funding is received, the officers will endeavour to have these funds reach as many Kosovo children as possible.

Anyone interested in making donations can do so by visiting one of the branches of Emergency Services Credit Union (14909 – 121 A Ave., or 10104 – 111 Ave.) and contacting Dianne Brown (455-9500) or by mailing a cheque made payable to “Jack’s Kids In Kosovo” to:

Emergency Services Credit Union: 14909 – 121 A Avenue, Edmonton Alberta, T5V 1P3
