Positive Impact

There was a positive story out of Lethbridge that I want to touch on for this week’s column.

Earlier this month after heavy snowfall, a Lethbridge resident with the twitter handle of @KaeleeHelps posted on social media platforms that she would be braving the cold to shovel driveways, sidewalks and staircases for donations to the Lethbridge Humane Society.

The radio station CJOC in Lethbridge heard what she was doing and helped get the word out.

What made this act of kindness even more amazing is the fact that she decided to do this in one of the coldest stretches of the winter so far.
It was a brisk -23 with a wind-chill that made it feel like -39.

Kaelee spent her entire day shoveling business lots, driveways and sidewalks around town and ended up raising a total of $90 for the Humane Society.

But what makes this story even more special is the fact that people ended up matching her donation.

Another individual on Twitter matched the $90 and local company Theoretically Brewing also matched the donation bringing the full amount raised to $270.

To top it all off, the week after her day of shoveling, she dropped off cupcakes along with the $270 donation to the Lethbridge Humane and also dropped off cupcakes at the CJOC station as a thank you for getting the word out on what she was doing.

It’s the small things like this that make communities a better place to be.

We shouldn’t hesitate to go out and do the small things that may make someone else’s life better or easier.

It may be something as helping someone across the street or opening the door for someone to enter before you.

Whenever we have a chance to positively impact a person’s life, we can’t hesitate to do it.

Everyone goes through some kind of struggles in their life on a daily basis and being the one to give them a helping hand may just be what the need to keep going forward.

Never underestimate what the simple things can do for someone.
