There is not a man of us who does not at times need a helping hand to be stretched out to him.- Theodore Roosevelt

Everyone needs a hand up at some point

Everyone needs a hand up at some point

In my life I have had opportunity to help some people.

It works best, when done in secret; something I learned from a group of men I have never met!

Somewhere in Calgary, there’s a group of men who want to make a difference.

They don’t do it for recognition.

They don’t do it for a tax receipt.

They just want to share from their bounty with others.

Each year they contribute a sum of money into the pot and wait for the opportunity to bless someone who needs help.

They solicit the help of a local financial planner to find an individual who is struggling and he shares that person’s story with the group.

The group then sends this financial planner to deliver the gift, without revealing who it comes from.


I personally know what it feels like to be at the receiving end of a random act of kindness. Click here to read that story!
