As many of you know, Fort McMurray has been a big topic on the news as of lately. On May 1, 2016, a fire started just outside of Fort McMurray. In just 2 days, the fire swept through the city of Fort McMurray, destroying over 2500 homes, businesses, and buildings, and sending over 80 000 people fleeing from their homes in a city-wide evacuation.
Many of you may have heard stories about the people who lost everything in Fort McMurray. I have one more story that I would like to share.
Growing up, I had the pleasure of living in a small town. Everyone knew everyone when it came to school and who your peers were. One of the boys in my school, who is a few years younger than me, was also affected by fires. His name is Brendon. Brendon was always a shy kid growing up. We didn’t hang out with the same people, but when you live in a small town, you are acquaintances with everyone.
Above and beyond what I donate to the Canadian Red Cross (all sales from Monday, May 16th) I will match it with my own money and donate toward Brendon’s Go Fund Me account. Together we can make a difference!
Here is a list of all the stores that are involved in the sale. Check them out and help support this cause. Thanks so much in advance for your support.
