The People of Edmonton Came Together for Mother Down on Her Luck This Past Christmas

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:

I need Edmontons help please .

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:

This is what its about people. A van full of groceries, xmas gifts, and $1000 cash donations.And most of all a young lady can now have her children during Christmas.My heart is content this evening. Thank you all that helped me make this a reality.And the reason for doing this live is so that you could experiance what me and my family got to experiance. And that is seeing the emotion on someones face when they feel all is lost then to see the true feelings of life put back into someone.

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.

      C.P. Rock so what? He did a great thing for this family. He is allowed to have a personal life, … maybe you need to learn to be kind, rather than a Facebook judge

      C.P. Rock first of all pictures were not the same day as those photos where taken. Have you ever went out and had a good time perhaps a costume party? If so i think you are a bad person/parent and you shouldnt be allowed children. Just my friendly critism.

      Who cares? As long as it wasn’t around kids, Whats the big deal? If after a long day Santa wants to get drunk, smoke a bit of weed and get it on with other consenting adults who the fuck cares? lol.

    So a person can’t be a lil crazy and love their own life…and at the same time have a heart and care enough to help another person? Get over it buddy….what he did is more than people who “pray”, cause let’s face it, they can’t be bothered to get off their asses
