Calgary, Alta. – The Western Hockey League and its 22 member Clubs are proud to launch the inaugural WHL T’s For Toys Campaign. Mascots from across the WHL have united to raise funds throughout Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest United States to ensure as many children as possible receive toys during the holiday season.

The WHL T’s For Toys Campaign will give Wheat Kings fans an opportunity to purchase, limited-edition WHL Club T-Shirts featuring Willie, the official mascot of the Wheat Kings! This program marks the first time the 22 WHL mascots have joined forces to benefit children in their communities.


T-Shirts will be available for purchase online at a cost of $20 (CAD) and available in adult and youth sizes. $7.00 (CAD) from each T-Shirt sold will go directly to a local charity in the home community of the mascot depicted on the T-Shirt purchased. The proceeds will be donated to community charities to purchase toys for local children in need.

Each WHL Club has partnered with a local charity to support the WHL T’s For Toys Campaign, which will run through December 11.
