A young Edmonton mother unexpectedly received a plethora of groceries, gifts, and $1,000 cash this past Christmas, and it was entirely from the people of Edmonton.
EDMONTON | It’s always a pleasure to have the opportunity to write about such happy events. This past Christmas in particular, Edmontonian Jack Shultz (heavily known for his Alberta Cash Cows ventures) took it upon himself to ask the citizens of this city to find it in themselves to help out a mother-of-three down on her luck this holiday season.
Jack had been informed of Kat’s situation through someone else that he knows, and took it upon himself to meet up and provide her with a few gifts. When meeting up with her, Jack says that his heart was broken with the whole situation presented in front of him, so even though he had already done what he could with what he had, he wasn’t done just yet.
Here is a short video that was recorded live on December 23rd, 2018 at 4:44 PM by Jack:
In the video above, viewed 521 times at the time of posting, Jack asks the people of Edmonton to come together to help this mother with absolutely anything, to allow Kat to have a Christmas with her children.
As we all know, a little bit from a lot of people has the least amount of affect on people’s bank accounts.
According to Jack, in just two short hours after initially asking the public, $1,000 in donations had already been received.
Later that same evening, at 8:47 PM, Jack and his kids go live on Facebook at Kat’s residence to show the full emotional feeling of being in the presence of someone receiving such an uplifting gift in a time of need:
In the video above, viewed 858 times at the time of this posting, you can see at least 14 grocery bags and boxes filled with groceries and gifts for Kat to be able to cook a Christmas dinner, have groceries for a while, and be able to provide her kids with some gifts.
She also receives an envelope filled with $1,000 cash, which all came in through Jack Shultz, his family, and the people of Edmonton, most (if not all) of which do not know Kat personally; let alone Jack himself.
I just want to take a quick minute here to thank, not only Jack Shultz himself; for he seems to be teaching his kids the proper ways, but also to you – the people of Edmonton, for coming together for this young mother during hard times. It’s moments like these that add glimmers of hope into our lives.
