Straton Daily Driver Mark II

Straton Daily Driver Mark II – Charity Sweepstake

After I finished reviewing this Straton Daily Driver, Kyle Schut, the founder of Straton Watch Co., offered that instead of returning the watch, to use it to raise funds for a good cause. I’m more than happy to oblige, as it gives me the opportunity to write about a fantastic organization that is very close to my heart, Kids Kicking Cancer Canada.

About Kids Kicking Cancer

Kids Kicking Cancer (KKC) is a global organization dedicated to lowering the pain of children through the teaching of martial arts as a therapy. Children learn breathwork, meditation and traditional karate movements that empower them to teach others and thus gain purpose within their lives. Our young cancer patients teach other children with challenging illnesses and even adults how to “breathe in the light and blow out the darkness”. This has extended into the creation of a Heroes Circle program dedicated to lowering the pain of all children regardless of disease.

Kids Kicking Cancer began in 1999 with ten children at Children’s Hospital of Michigan and is now empowering over 5,000 children in 48 hospitals in 5 countries (US, Canada, Italy, Israel and South Africa).

In 2010, Canada’s first Kids Kicking Cancer program was piloted in Windsor. The program expanded to London in 2012 with service at Children’s Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre and community programs. In 2018, a community-based program began in Ottawa.

Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye. WatchPaper was born from the desire to create an online tool where I can share my passion for watches.
