Mission accomplished! Rebel viewers give $15,000 to veterans charity Grow Calgary

David MenziesMission Specialist

Regular Rebel viewers are likely familiar with the year-long saga of our efforts to donate funds raised by you, our generous viewers, to a military charity. Well, after being rejected TWICE, we finally have some good news.

More than a year after this mission began, it is now time to file this under “Mission Accomplished” after we found a charity in Alberta run by a veteran who helps other veterans, some of whom have suffered from PTSD.

The charity is called Grow Calgary, a non-profit organization that bills itself as Canada’s largest urban community farm.

Grow Calgary harvests tons of produce for social agencies in Calgary that have food access programs. As well, Grow Calgary also constructs portable micro-homes as a way of addressing homelessness. Veterans serve as volunteers at the non-profit organization, and are also recipients of its various programs.

Earlier this week I was Alberta-bound to present Grow Calgary founder Paul Hughes with that cheque for more than $15,000.

Watch as Paul accepts the cheque and expresses his gratitude for your generous donation.

And thank you again from The Rebel for your support and patience while we found a worthy recipient for your hard-earned money!

David, Good stuff. This is a much better use of donated funds than the original idea of donating to allegedly “needy” serving troops.

I would never want to contribute to a group who did not want the money. Should have given the money to another charity. Glad I did NOT contribute.

Good going David, happy to see the right people got this money. I hope it goes a long way. Everytime I think of that Traitor Trudeau handing over money to Terrorists my blood pressure peaks. Our soldiers have always done so much, with so little. It’s men like Mr. Humphrey that are my heroes. The Menzoid and all those at The Rebel are my heroes as well for the risks you take and the hatred directed toward you, even by our own government. May they all burn in Hell.

Good thing The Rebel didn’t telegraph this ahead of time…You know for sure if they did..Trudeau would of been there tackling Menzies and trying to rip the cheque away kicking and screaming…

Great stuff Rebel Media..

And the Bastard Trudeau starves our Veterans. Your turn will come Young Master Trudeau and you will know Hell and become it’s play thing.

Let’s hope the gov’t doesn’t take away Grow Calgary’s charity status, because, well…Justin.
