It's that time of year, and I look forward to it. It's time where the people from Sally Ann stand out there in the cold with their donation bowls. I spend the year nickel and diming and saving wherever and whenever I can. It's in my nature, being Asian. Then during Christmas, I give back. I also gave to the Firefighters in front of Costco, yesterday. Their cause, Muscular Dystrophy - sory, ADD moment. Back to Sally Ann. I don't support anything that is tied to religion, but I make an exception with these folks. They do a lot of good work, expecially in the DTES. I've seen what they do, and many of them are very genuine - really good people. This is one army I support. Please give whenever you see the people out there. If you have old one cent coins (Pennies are American, BTW) that are kicking around, they can use it.

Most of us are fortunate, some way more than just fortunate. I urge you to not have that cup of coffee in the morning and use the money you just saved and give it to a good cause, instead. If everyone on RS gave a dime or two this season, it would make a helluva difference. Use some change to change some lives.

Not to mention Sally Ann seems to run a more fiscally tight ship than a lot of other DTES service societies.. at least they don't have management that brings home 6 figures.

Yup. Second best in North America with $0.83 per dollar going to either goods or services. That's pretty lean to run on $0.17 per dollar for management. I support the SA for the same reasons MG1 mentioned.

As a lot of you may know, yesterday there was a big tribute meet/cruise in the name of Paul Walker to raise funds for the typhoon victims at Richmond SilverCity.

What a lot of you may not know is that unfortunately a lot of people were too lazy to walk to the theatre to dispose of their garbage, or put it in their cars for later. Local RS member Roach ended up grabbing a garbage bag from the theatre, and spent an HOUR on his BIRTHDAY collecting the garbage so as not to have our car community plagued with negative attention.

I think everyone should go thank stalk this standup guy

so i'm driving down an alley and this crosses my path!


With no owner in sight, my gf and I started knocking on doors nearby. Luckily, the first one we knocked on told us to try their neighbour because they knew that the neighbours owned a dog. low and behold, it was their dog! The owner's seemed clueless and not worried of what was happening. But then again, the dog wasn't soaking wet, so my gf and I may have found the dog soon after escaping from it's house. I didn't stay to chat with the owner. I received a couple "thank you"'s and left, but I'm assuming that it's not an outdoor dog because the blue jacket it was wearing was fleece....who wears fleece in the rain

on a side note, my dashcam thinks that's it's 4hrs earlier than real time. How do I fix that?

One day, just decided to donate some food to the local food bank.

Found some time to buy a trunk load of food and drove to the local Food Bank.

Was fun.

A big applause to the volunteers (100+ people) who work their butts off!

Me and my wife found a really old golden lab wandering around a neighbourhood a couple weeks ago. Coaxed him over and spotted the number on his collar and delivered him home a few blocks away with the spare leash I had in my trunk. His owner seemed like it was more of an inconvenience to answer the door than thankful he was home. Pretty fucking lame, but whatever, I'm sure he was happy to be home and thats all that matters to me.

Scruffy Vancouver panhandler's random acts of kindness

Scruffy Vancouver panhandler's random acts of kindness

VANCOUVER - Yogi Omar was so strapped for cash that he nearly didn’t help a scruffy panhandler who asked him for change on a Vancouver street corner just after midnight Thursday.

But just as he was about to walk away, something compelled him to turn around and offer the man food and clothing.

“I wanted to give him food more than anything else, really,” Omar, 30 said.

Omar was stopped in his tracks, though, when the man refused his offer of help — and instead asked Omar what he could do for him.

Turns out, the panhandler wasn’t even homeless, but a wealthy benefactor participating in a random acts of kindness ritual with his family. For three hours every night for a week over Christmas, the man apparently hangs out on a street corner to see who is willing to help the down and out.

“He said ‘I do this with my family every year,’” Omar said. “They just want to see who cares about the homeless. I was like ‘wow, that’s crazy.’”

Omar ended up speaking with the man, telling him how he had just bought expensive plane tickets to Guangzhou, China, to visit his dying father.

The man offered to help but when Omar declined, he asked him how much he paid for rent.

“I said $469,” Omar said. “I was joking but that’s what I pay. He just whipped out this fanny pack and gave me $469 in cash. I was like ‘is this serious?’ I was really stunned at that point.”

The man, whom Omar described as a Caucasian in his 50s wearing a plaid shirt, refused to give his name.

“He said ‘that’s part of the deal, I have to remain anonymous.’ Just keep doing good things,” Omar said. “I guess that’s what karma is, you don’t expect anything back.”

Omar headed home to his basement suite and immediately posted his good fortune on Facebook. When he woke the next day, he was greeted with a “bazillion messages” from friends and strangers, and then immediately went upstairs and paid his rent.

“It happened to me and it brought be so much joy that I wanted to spread that joy around,” said Omar, who is co-owner of InspirationALL Talent and Modelling Group. “I was very, very stunned. I was thinking about this the whole time.

“I was like, ‘I don’t know what to say. What do I do?’ I thought, I’m going to tell people ... it’s weird but wonderful.”

Omar maintains he often helps the homeless, and once even had a down-and-out teenager write a poem for him because he stopped to listen to him one day. The timing was a bit off this time, he said, as he was financially strapped because of the cost of the plane tickets, but he’s glad he offered to help.

“I just feel a lot of times people don’t have the time or opportunity to be heard,” he said, adding he’s torn about wanting to know his benefactor’s name. “I do and I don’t. I want to thank him properly but I don’t because that is what he wants ... Inspiration comes from anywhere.”

Isn't this guy 7seven's friend?

A good story, and couldn't have happened to a better person. Good Karma. But seriously... How did he find a basement suite for 469 bucks?

I have a friend in Kelowna without a family to visit these holidays, a difficult burden that I've experienced, so I drove there today to visit her! We cooked dinner together and enjoyed one another's company. Driving back, I saw a car stopped with hazard lights on above the snowshed. I stopped to see whether they were OK, and they were, but they were having trouble breaking torque on the lugs to swap a flat out. I had a breaker bar and socket and was able to break the torque, and I noted that they were way over torqued, explaining why the oem lug wrench wasn't enough to get them loose. Anyway, I'm aware that offering help may be 'dangerous', and I'm sure that's partially why so few people offer help. I always stop to offer help, though. I'd like to see it a more common practice.

I always stop because sometimes the person doesn't have a cell phone to call for help from. I come across people who don't more often than I would have thought.

Just a couple weeks ago I saw an elderly gentleman changing a flat tire on the street near a school. He had the car lifted and the lugs off but was struggling to get the wheel off the hub. Two kicks from me did it and saved him from having to pay for the tow truck that was on its way.

Also, depending on the stretch of highway you don't always have range.
My tire blew out coming down snowshed hill when I was commuting btw surrey and Kamloops.
Stupid Rogers was a deadzone and I had never changed a tire myself. I know how to do so but fortunately being a woman a man has always offered to do it and of course I won't say no lol

I stopped early evening yesterday just off of the kensington exit. Thought buddy was struggling swapping out his spare. Turns out he had two flat tires. Said sorry for not being able to do shit for him, wished him a merry christmas and was on my way... Felt bad for the guy, but shit happens tow truck probably got there pretty quick.
