Communities Coming Together

We have seen time after time that after a disaster in communities, and even cities, provinces, and the whole country comes together and provide aid and support in the event of a disaster.  The current devastating wildfire that ripped through Fort McMurray is the latest example where emergency crews, organizations, and people just wanting to help out and come together in minimizing the damage and offer support. WebStamp would like to recognize and thank all the people who went above and beyond in some way to assist in the effort.

Like Darby Allen, Fort McMurray fire chief, says “we should recognize the true heroes”, which there were so many of. Belt Drive Betty, an editor of a motorcycle magazine, took it upon herself after hearing the emergency crews fighting the fires were running out of resources to collect, deliver to, feed and supply them is one of these heroes. One firefighter asked if the food was for them because he had only eaten crackers for the last 62 hours and gave her a big bear hug when he found out it was.

Many people from the communities from Alberta, and even all across Canada, offered support in many ways. Many local communities around Fort McMurray helped with housing and supporting evacuees. Even here in Calgary many of the refugees found shelter from the firestorm. We hear stories of people and pets being reunited after being separated, facilities and schools housing refugees, extra schooling for displaced students, companies and organizations collecting and delivering food, clothing, supplies, and other necessities that people of the Fort require.

There are so many heroes that helped out and it was through communities and the organizations that they support that came together in a time of need to help others that needed it the most, even though it wasn’t their community. These communities and associations are always there but only come to the forefront when ill-fortune happens. These groups could use your support throughout the year, and not only in times of disaster. Participate and support your local communities with the many fundraising events during the year and for the most part, enjoy what your community has to offer.

By sponsoring your communities you help many charitable organizations that they are associated with the benefit of enjoying the many fundraising events that are put on throughout the year in Calgary.  Interacting with your neighbours, and the feeling that you have made a difference, is what participating with your local communities, organizations, and even local businesses and becomes a great way to start enjoying a better lifestyle. WebStamp will be the place where you can find all the info you need to enjoy and participate with your local communities.
