Did you know that in Canada there are over two million senior citizens living on $18,000 or less per year? That is, 15% of all seniors live in poverty.
Can you live on 18K or less a year?
A large percentage of these people are single and women.
If ten million dollars can be raised to support an illegal protest, then surely people could spare a hundred dollars or so a month to help a senior.
I have said it before. A small amount of money can make a huge difference in someone’s life. And it is often the lack of a bit of currency that denies people a decent life and robs them of their dreams.
I know seniors are not as cute as a puppy or as endearing as a child, but they are just as in need of housing, food, medicine, care and companionship.
You are probably not aware of a seniors needs. Adults tend to hide their poverty.
So if you know of someone, and it could be your own granny or grandpa, that could really benefit by you buying their medicine once in a while, pay their rent for a couple of months, buy their groceries for a few weeks, or just give them some extra cash to do with as they please, it’d really be appreciated.
