Great people in Saskatchewan. AND 2000 KILOMETERS!!

We are all praying for and thinking of the people in Calgary and hoping everyone manages to get back on their feet safely and quickly.  It is so hard to imagine something happening in such a large city. But it is amazing to hear the stories of people stepping up to help one another. Stay strong Calgary. I hear news that power to downtown could be back up very soon.

While it is amazing to see all the people helping,  (One friend posted that they asked for 1,000 volunteers to show up for a clean up  crew and over 5,000 showed up) I have to say that it is not surprising.  I have always know that we Canadians are helpful and kind spirited, it is just part of who we are.  While this support happening in and for Calgary is heartwarming, it is just us watching out for each other as we always do.  So with the Canada Day long weekend coming up, take a minute to think about what that means to you and make an extra effort to help each other.  Even just a kind word or a simple acknowledgment is so easy to give, but can make all the difference in someones day.

I received a string of texts from Breyden a few days ago with a long list of people who have reached out to help him.  So I would like to acknowledge some of the great people who have helped him recently. I know I have not gotten everyone and may have some spelling mistakes on a few names so please leave me a comment and share your meeting with Breyden.

In addition Breyden met with the Mayor of Moosomin, Larry Tomlinson who was very encouraging and donated $50.

We would also like to thank, Rick, of the Fieldstone campground,  Doris Troberts of Estivan, James of Elkhorn Manitoba and Donna Bugler for their generosity and support.  Oh, and did you notice that? That's right. Manitoba.

Breyden and the Road Crew have now cleared the 3 Western Provinces and are in Manitoba. that calls for some donations. Breyden is so persistent and dedicated to raising money for cancer research. Please donate and help by passing on the work.

Thanks Everyone!!.
