Trucks and Chicken Wings



On Friday we got an email from Brent and he said that he needed our help. We went to see him and he told us a story of a troubled past and life on the streets. Two years ago, Brent pulled himself out of this life and started 2 business'. His dream is to raise enough money to build a half way ranch for individuals like himself who are searching for more. He began a new and used shop in Kelowna called "Consecutive Cycles" on Rutlin st. and a Landscaping operation, both of which relyed on his truck. Brent had just recently lost his truck along with the ability to carry on his 2 business'. Touched by his story, we asked him how we could help. With no mention of the truck, he replied, "I have always wanted to buy 200 chicken wings and take them down to the Friendship Centre in Kelowna". We had to find this guy a truck.

Walking onto a second hand car lot, we saw a perfect truck for $2100. We explained our story to Ed at Okanagan Motors, and offered him some money for the truck. "I believe everyone deserves a break", Ed said. He gave us the truck for $480.

The look on Brent's face when we pulled up in the truck and the reaction that ensued was the most rewarding feeling any of us have ever had. Thanks Brent.

We couldn't find chicken wings, so next best thing to the friendship centre.

Sounds like things are going really well so far. You guys are not only touching the hearts of those you are meeting along the way but also everyone reading about it along the way. Once the documentary comes out, your message will only continue to spread. Much love for Ben,Dunc,Davey boy and of course to JP. I dig.

Truckguy, you are a trooper! I wish you all the best and that you continue to be drug free and keep making your own difference in the world. Keep on truckin!!
