We Raised Over $5,300 To Help UGM Feed The Hungry

The donation drive for UGM started off slow but picked up nicely in the end. Thanks to your donations, we’ve raised enough money for the Union Gospel Mission to feed over 1,600 people this Thanksgiving. I want to thank everyone who made a donation to this worthy cause. For many of the homeless in Vancouver, this will be the start of a new life and new beginning and you’ve help made that possible.

A huge shout out goes to Quinton Pullen for his $1,000 donation. I said that if anyone donates $1,000, I would give them a free review but Quinton doesn’t want a review. He doesn’t even want his name linked. He gave because he wanted to help. A true class act. Thank you Quinton! A big thank you goes out to all the readers who stepped forward.

Quinton Pullen, Vincent Woo, Michael Kwan, Tyler Cruz, SEO Arbiter, David Wong, Michael Yurechko, Duane Storey, iPhone In Canada, ChrisD.ca, Miss 604, Franco Frenette, Stephen Fung, Personal PPC Coach, Victoria Revay, Pinky Arcade, Blueverse.com, Qwik Media, Weight Loss Diet Plans, Props Blog dot Com, Omar Yesid MariΓ±o, Mike Walker, McElroy Flavelle, Basketball Drills, Louise Kozier, Rachel Kaufman, Keep Blogging, Terry Carter, FitJerks’ Fitness Blog, Kevin Wu, Celebrity Seats, Karilee Orchard, My Blog 2 Day, Social Couch, Web Traffic ROI, Sport Gab Network, Tia Singh, My Boxing Fans, My Brute Game Guide

Altogether, John Chow dot Com readers raised $2,654.89. I said I would match all donations and I have sent the UGM my half to bring our total to $5,309.78. Once again, thanks to everyone who helped to make this Thanksgiving a better one for the less fortunate in our society.

        My compliments on everyone’s generosity!

  1. Hi John,

    Great job indeed! I wish I knew about this sooner.

    I could have at least give a shout out through the traditional social media channels, like Facebook, Twitter, including my blog.

    Seems to me i should be reading your blog more often πŸ™‚


    1. Yes you should come here again and again …

      Three things you will find here –

      Learn how to earn …

      Good Food

      Now a days Noble cause …

      1. No kidding. It seems like this last month John has been a part of a lot of charitable acts. With Christmas coming up, he has set some expectations for us πŸ˜‰

    I feel good by donating. that was my first time every donating money.

    1. Benjamin Cip says:

      How much did you donate?

      1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

        I think we can keep it as secret. lol! As long as we could help to feed some of the hungry out there. πŸ˜€

    2. First time you donated … seems to me that you live in some rich city where everyone is getting ample amount of food everyday …

      I am sure you got inner peace …

      1. Benjamin Cip says:

        It’s not really a big deal to make donation for people who have money, they could also reduce their taxes by offering money to association, so everyone find profit from doing it. There are people in misery everywhere, even in big cities like New York and Vancouver…. we always help other “poor” country, but we tend not to help people in need in our own countries… well, of course people from “poor” countries seem to be in very bad situation at the moment, so of course I would try everything to help them as much as I can.

        1. Its funny that you mention this. I agree that it’s weird that so many people are willing to give to other countries, but don’t bother worrying about the people in their own country that are starving too.

          I guess because there are government programs here in the US to try to help people in need that are funded by taxes, it doesn’t seem like it is as necessary as with third world countries.

          Either way, I think it’s important to take the focus off ourselves and think about how we can help others.

  4. I also feel good by donating, but not matched on John’s post.

  5. cynte415 says:

    This is great! You have created a great incentive by matching donations yourself!

  6. I’m glad to hear that it was such a success. Hopefully next drive we can double that πŸ˜‰

  7. Benjamin Cip says:

    That’s really an awasome amount! I’m glad it was a success.

  8. Lee Ka Hoong says:

    John great to see you donate another half of what we donated! We all hope this money helps them, at least over 1000 meals to feed the hungry.

    1. Lee Ka Hoong says:

      Sorry for double comment John, I forgot to thank you for the link love. I appreciate it! πŸ™‚

  9. ChrisD.ca says:

    Great to see so many people donated meals. Hopefully this continues as an annual event. πŸ™‚
