Did you naysayers not notice the byline from Vancouver, British Columbia?
That's in Canada. Why should he worry about "Detroit, Cleveland, St.
Louis or Milwaukee" and even Salt Lake City more than Haiti or the
Philippines? He deserves praise for his generosity, not criticism or negativity.
You can't fix everything, but you can fix something. Good on this man for
his efforts in a place he felt strongly about improving. Maybe everyone else
can see his example and do something for someone near to them too.
The Philippines needs it more than anywhere in America or Canada. If people here
can't find work they haven't worked hard enough to find it. We
don't even know poor by comparison. Yay for the doers, nay to the politics
that just talk about the doers and do nothing themselves (If that's not
true, then pray tell what are you doing besides yapping?).
I lived in Manila for several months. Im glad he is doimg something for the
impoverished people there. I have never been to Haití but can imagine It
is simular to that of the philippines. May God bless him for His generosity.
How wonderful someone is trying to make a difference in the lives of the
vulnerable! For those who feel Mr Leavitt should be contributing funds to help
the disadvantaged in the US, I think it is important to note that both he and
his company are Canadian; giving money to the US would still be sending aid to a
foreign country. Being personally acquainted with him, I can affirm he is also
generous with those in his own community.
It's a legitimate comment. We have soo many children and people in need in
this country. We often skip out on helping our neighbors for the glory of
traveling around the world and helping others instead.There is a big
need for help, even in our little Salt Lake City.
@popeyeThey already have Obama giving them handouts. Why would they
need to put in some actual work at an egg farm?
What a pathetic comment! A man who is working miracles in a country that has
absolutely nothing much going for it but the kindness of strangers has to be
knocked down a peg for not choosing to sink further resources into your choices
of black holes: once great cities that were before so richly endowed and then
corrupted. They have their expensive never-ending programs, supposedly meant to
help. This man teaches children how to live productively and provides them a
safe, nurturing environment. It's contemptible as well as
pathetic because your question shows someone like this benefactor will never do
enough to suit you or anyone else with an axe to grind, as if that's a
worthy standard. It wouldn't matter where he'd chosen to do this
work. If you think Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis or Milwaukee need some help,
give it yourself rather than denigrating the generosity bestowed on some of the
poorest of the poor elsewhere by someone with important dreams.
Why not Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis or Milwaukee?
