Attitude is Everything!

I know many of you wanted an outlet to show support for Brent Sass and the Wild and Free kennel in honor of the amazing man and musher he is, and his best friends - HIS DOGS!  I've set this up on behalf of the dozens of you that thought about it. Let's support our Champion!

Bernadette Live Podcast: 3-13 10A

Every kind word, with or without a donation, will hopefully make Brent feel how loved and supported he is...all over the world!

Since there is so much excitement, wouldn't it be fun to band together and raise an amount of money close to what Brent may have earned if he finished this race Let's make it happen!

Here are 4 quick and easy ways to donate (depending on your preference), to show your support for Brent and his team:

1) Donate here - Outside of what the process deducts, 100% of every dollar raised will go to Brent and his dog team.   Brent's mom will be receiving all of the money directly. ***WE HAVE CLOSED DONATIONS TO THIS SITE, PLEASE SEE BELOW

2) Donate by sending a check to his mom, Christine Sass -  6275 Hummingbird Rd. Excelsior, MN 55331.  She will deposit it in his checking account.

3) Send a check directly to Brent - PO Box 62, Manley Hot Springs, AK , 99756 (He checks his mail about every 2 weeks).

4) Buy Wild and  Free merchandise or sponsor him/the team directly.  Additional Wild and Free merchandise can be found here.
Note: Please be patient on shipping time (2-4 weeks).  

As anyone who knows Brent knows, he'd be the first to help you and the last to ask for help! If you do not know Brent, and you'd like some insight, please read this article - he's a true CHAMPION!  He is the most humble, honest, hardworking, courageous, kind, and genuinely happy person I've had the pleasure of knowing. He is a role model for many mushers, children, and friends alike. 

With the recent decision, Brent will not leave the race with any winnings, and feels he's let his dogs and his fans down.   Let's show him he hasn't let us down and that we are all behind him, now even more than ever! 

If you are able to show your support with a comment or small donation (even $5), maybe we can give him a fan-produced "purse" of his own!

I know that in time, he'll be appreciative of all of the support that I know this community will provide!

Please share only positive posts and stories below, he wouldn't want anything else! There are links below the pictures of fun stories, singing, and recent headlines.  If you need a laugh, watch this video again - Dark Winter Nights!

Please share this site with anyone and everyone...
