Give & Grow – A Difference Amplified

Today we received a new kind of donation. The cheque was from FS Financial Strategies – a company we had not heard from before. With the cheque was a letter that gave us us some background behind the gift. One of their customers came in to learn a little about managing his finances and as part of that visit, FS Financial Strategies asked him which charity he would like to support. Every time FS Financial shows people their “How Money Really Works” financial strategy, FS Financial donates $50 to a charity of their choice as part of their innovative Give & Grow program.

We called Darrell Weibe, the General Manager, at FS Financial to learn more about the program. He told us that their company has two purposes:

1. To donate as much money as possible to charities.

2. To educate everyday people about how money works, in everyday language.

So  today we’re doubly thankful – first for the people at FS Financial made this gift possible and to their customer who thought of L’Arche when he was asked to name his  favourite charity. We are doubly blessed – a difference amplified.
