Brigida CROSBIE - VOTE for Mayor of Chilliwack

If we choose - we can live in a world of comforting illusion.
Live your life in the service of others - always treat people with dignity - concern and love

Start by doing what is necessary, then what's possible and suddenly you are doing the impossible.

Where there is charity and wisdom - there is neither fear nor ignorance.

The idea that some lives matter less, is the root cause of all that is wrong in this world.

It has come to my attention that the group that normally puts on dinner in the Church on Main and Spadina is once again ( the 8 the time now ) NOT doing it & nor have they sent a representative from their group to tell all the people and children in the line up that they won’t be eating.

8 times now my company, Community Angels has stepped up with meals for all because we recognize the goal in the end is to make sure people have a good meal and are not hungry.

I WILL be there today again with volunteers helping. Because this dinner is mostly low income Seniors, Low Income families with children and people with disabilities.

PLEASE if you could donate a casserole or watermelons for TODAY it will help us be able to feed even more people than we usually do. Regularly we give meals to 100+ people almost daily.

So blessed that Community Angels has the support and volunteers with amazing and genuine compassion, empathy, kindness and love for others.

3 vehicles were full of delicious food to feed those that are hungry - including children.

After feeding in the parking lot Church on Main and Spadina - I took to the streets with a volunteer to continue feeding those struggling with homelessness.

In total - over 140 people were fed.

If you would like to volunteer to be a Community Angel- please message myself or Bonnie-Lea Fisk-Burress. If you can not volunteer, but would like to cook meals / donate towards our cause - please private message.

WE ARE Changing Lives. XO
Brigida Maddalena Crosbie.

A beautiful message left for me :

For the record, I just want to leave you with this thought: you and I have not been friends for all that long, not really, and in this short period of time, I have learned something quite profound and unique about you...given your life story, that which you have shared with me of your life experiences, there is one undeniable fact about you: you are, without doubt, one of the most gracious people I have had the very good fortune to meet. Where it comes from, is, no doubt, a place of profound pain, and a divine choice to be a conduit for healing; you have a depth of understanding, and a care to be part of something, the purpose of which is to be a crack that let's the light in, in very dark corners. This quality makes you a moth that draws the sick and the stumbling, the hurt of this world to a flame that ignites a new zeal for life of those who are lost. Thank you, from the depth of my being, for letting me be part of the healing that is the mark and measure of your life. May God grant your all that is good, the desires of your heart, although I suspect He has already done so on more than one occasion.

I met this amazing man today and his name is Evan and he is deaf - BUT such a charmer and hilariously funny.

Evan just came out of a two week stay at the hospital for heart related problems. He lives in a shell of a trailer, no water, no heat, no hydro.

If anyone can please DONATE a
BBQ to Evan that would be greatly appreciated and it would give him a source to eat proper food, right now he is eating only can food and that is not healthy for anyone with heart related issues.

Evan could also use some help and resources for housing and like many others is one of our silent seniors - homeless in Chilliwack.

Sometimes doing the right thing is difficult - but EVERY human being no matter what their circumstance - is important and valuable.

21 people were taken off the street and were in my home during this extremely cold weather we are having. People from our community came forward with food and support and helped me make meals to feed everyone. Friendships were made and a lot of tears were shed.

I wouldn’t change a moment of it because I grew as a person and I know I made a huge difference, not only in the lives of those 21 people - but also in the lives of the people that stepped forward to help.

Many helped with meal preparations and we began to feel like a real family. Many shared their stories and I was able to share mine.

One thing we continue to share is love and respect for each other. XO

God has truly blessed me.

Community Angels -

These meals were delivered to those in need in the Chilliwack / Sardis / Cultus Lake / Rosedale & Agassiz area.

Many know this is the last day of
“ Ham for Hunger “ that helped feed low income families, suffering senior citizens, people with disabilities and our most vulnerable people - those that are on our streets and homeless.

By the end of tonight we would have fed over 400 people in total on our 1 st time doing this event.

Chilliwack has 965 people that live in poverty in our City. That is 1 in every 8 people and those are the ones that came forward to Stats Canada, many do not and live in embarrassment, shame and silence.

Everything was donated and so many people have come forward to donate to those in need.

ALL families that had children also received a food box

I would like to continue to feed those in need and ask for your help in doing so.

If you would like to donate please do so by donating Meat / potatoes / veggies they are what is needed.

* If you know anyone in need of a meal, please shoot me a private message with their name and address. All meals are delivered and FREE.

I truly truly appreciate every person that donated. Thank you so much for your love, compassion and empathy towards others and the City we live in.

XO

The Children’s Garden - Growing healthy food and healthy children.

Starting March 1 st. My Company Community Angels will teach children how to grow their own food

This will be a hands on approach, helping children develop self esteem and social skills through interaction with other children and plants.

This program will be for low income families and gives children the tools to grow their own healthy food, to help their families - and will encourage each child to also donate some of their vegetables to a senior citizen in need - a practice of kindness that can last a lifetime.

What a great way to get children to eat their vegetables.

If you can donate seeds, pots , soil towards The Children’s Garden please private message me.

I am no longer accepting the things I can not change,
I am changing the things I can no longer accept!

If you dream of peace around you.. then bring peace to others..
If you want kindness.. offer kindness to others..

When the power of love over comes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Always choose to heal not to hurt. To forgive, not to despise. To persevere, not to quit. To smile, not to frown and to love, not to hate!

At the end of life, what really matters is not what we bought, but what we built. Not what we got, but what we shared. Not our competence, but our character and not our success but our significance.

Don't worry about the haters... they are only angry because the truth you speak, contradicts the lie they live. Insecure people try and make you feel smaller.. confident people try to make you feel taller..and they must learn a new way to think, before they can master a new way to be. There Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth.

Be weary of any belief or ideology that promotes division between you and your fellow human beings.XO

To ALL our politicians - The ego is not who you really are. The ego is your self image; it is the role you are playing. Your social mask thrives on approval. It wants control, and it is sustained by power. Because it lives in fear.

Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is enlightenment. The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow and the nature of life is to change.

Be the change the world needs
