A new campaign by the name of WrestleKind has launched across Scotland to bring happiness to young people, all through the experience of professional wrestling.
Founded by Scottish wrestlers Lee Greig (Jack Jester) and Kimberly Benson (Viper/Piper Niven), alongside software developer and Get Well Gamers founder James Stewart, WrestleKind will deliver all sorts of services to bring joy to pro wrestling fans who may be needing that extra bit of motivation in their lives. The main idea for the charity came as a result of the three founders, as well as a few others, came together for a combined wrestling and video games event in 2019 at the Glasgow Sick Kids Hospital.
Per their official website, WrestleKind will work with clients to ensure each memory they’re part of creates a lasting memory for those who need it. More specifically, Greig, Benson, and Stewart will work with disadvantaged children, children who are suffering from various illnesses, young carers, and those with disabilities. The services the group can offer include hospital visits, home visits, letting individuals or groups of people gain access to a photoshoot inside a real wrestling ring, and charity wrestling shows up and down Scotland. Obviously, some of these services will be suspended for the time being as a result of the ongoing global pandemic.
The group’s first aim will be to raise £500 to help the homeless this winter. All donations can be made here, with the added bonus being that any donation at £5 or above will be entered into a raffle with the chance to win a signed singlet and pair of boots worn by Viper during tours of Japan.
