Halifax, NS -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/27/2014 -- Patricia Creighton is a classical musician. She has lived and worked in Halifax, Nova Scotia for the past 30 years. Her goal is to help homeless Kevin Ogilvie get off the streets. I was inspired by the Warner Brothers film Pay it Forward.
As Patricia has gotten to know Kevin Ogilvie a bit over the past few weeks, she feels Kevin deserves some help. He tells Patricia that he is desperate to get off of the streets. Patricia has got a good feeling about this young man despite the strife and anger, so she has decided to help.
The magnitude of what even a small donation will do for Kevin is far-reaching. Amounts aren't set; one can contribute $5, $10, $15--any amount they can afford. Helping even one person change their life for the better brings out the very best of the human nature.
Here is a breakdown of the funding budget of $5,000
-$1500 for eleven weeks (@$150/week) lodging at the YMCA until it closes May end, 2014
-$1500 for groceries until May end, 2014 ($150 a week)
-$200 to get his permanent driver's license so he has more options for finding work.
-Money for ongoing expenses after May
- Money to help him pay some of the expenses for his daughter
-Education funding; books, online tuition fees towards Grade 12 accreditation
This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. Funding duration: March 18, 2014 - April 17, 2014 (11:59pm PT).
