This holiday season please be careful of people trying to take advantage of your kind hearts. |
I am a mom with kids in a low to no income situation, but that being said I have NO NEED for being on Kijiji begging you for your money or gifts for my kids.
In the Region of Waterloo we are so lucky and blessed to have the social services available to us. My family is provided a turkey and food, my children are provided gifts including toys and clothing. We are given jackets hats mittens snow pants and all types of support from everything from church's to the community centers and our support workers.
I am ever so grateful to you citizens who work everyday, paying your taxes because it supports our health care system, it provides hope for us that our children are taken care of, that they have meals everyday and nurses to come to our home to care for I'll family members.
So I beg of you, do not allow yourselfs to be taken advantage of, do not let anyone lie to you about not getting support or help because it is a scam. People like me are well taken care of, at times better taken care of then someone working full time at minimum wage. Because so many services over lap, we get double and to much of some things. The system needs to be looked at more closely as even I can see how people are taking advantage of it. I have also noticed how some people think it's their right to have these thing given to them and they become angry when they do not get ever they want. If you want to help, extra above your regular taxes then please donate to a church or the community center, so it is shared and used appropriatly.
This holiday I would like to offer rides for the elderly, if anyone knows someone who could use a ride to pick up items from the food banks or getting to a doctor's appointment then please message me and I would like to give a hand.
