"I saw how sensitive our community was for people in pain."

Submitted by Ruchin Patel

I work as a food delivery driver.

When I heard about Fort McMurray, I thought, 'let me donate the money that I earn on Friday because that is the most well-paid day of the week.'

On that day, I thanked every customer for the tips they gave and informed them that the tips would be donated for Fort Mac. 

Most people were touched by my initiative and they gave such good tips that I earned $200 that night and donated it all to the Red Cross. 

I saw how sensitive our community was for people in pain.

I thank everyone for the help they give me to help those in need.
