Not sure how many of you have read about this story, but as far as I know (haven't followed it too closely), a mother was picking up dinner when she was shot in the back during a drive by shooting in the Toronto area. She has been told she likely will not walk again and will be stuck in a wheel chair the rest of her life. With 3 children and 1 of them being challenged it's deeply saddening to see such things happen.
Today while watching the news, I saw a story about the infamous Q107 (www.q107.com) and how this morning during a 3 hour donation for the mother raised over $150,000 dollars for her family! I know many charities open when someone gets hurt, etc but $150,000 in 3 hours. I'm extremely proud of the radio station and of the city of Toronto for what it has donated.
Definately nice to see. Thanks for posting up a reply!
I also should mention that their home is going to need extensive renovations (make it wheel chair accessible) and as of today, so many Toronto businesses have offered their services for free that their counting on it costing the family $0.
