Community is about forging relations, and helping people whenever possible. I have come across an interesting opportunity to help someone, and I thought I would share it with you.
Being a foreign student in Canada is an expensive proposition, but for Pierce Derks it is double frustrating. Is an American who has applied for permanant residency in Canada, a bright committed person who wants to live and work and contribute to Canada. The government is dragging it’s heels processing this, and now Pierce is on the hook for $10,000 in educational fees. He can’t cover this.
His friends have set up a website at SavePierce.org, and they are hoping ordinary people will consider donating $10.00. If you can’t afford $10.00, perhaps you could donate $5.00. Really, any amount, just as long as we can keep great talents like this in Canada!
If you are reading this and you are American, sorry, but we want to keep him!
