“A big thank you to the CBRM street cleaner driver who spent the wee hours of Tuesday morning making the Shipyard look spiffy. Although you woke up an entire neighbourhood with the orange flashing lights and the hum of the cleaner, your dedication to clean streets was obvious. I commend your ability to ever-so-gingerly place your foot on the gas keeping your rig consistently at a speed of 1 km. I woke up to the streets so clean Tuesday morning that I almost walked to work bare foot. Your commitment to a clean ‘hood’ made the interruption of a good dream worth it. From a tired, but thankful, Shipyarder”

“ I want to take a moment to let my neighbour Mr. Willy know that just how much his kindness and friendship mean to me and my roommates. As an international student in Canada, I’ve encountered my fair share of struggles - from adjusting to a new culture and dealing with homesickness to navigating the challenges of my studies and job search. However, your warm smiles and friendly conversations have brightened even the gloomiest of days. It’s not just the tools you’ve lent me to fix things in my home or the time you took to fix my broken dining table that I appreciate, but the fact that you go out of your way to help without a second thought. Your unwavering support and willingness to lend a helping hand have made a world of difference, making me feel like I have a true friend by my side. Your selflessness and generosity have left a lasting impact on me, and I am truly grateful for your guidance and assistance. Your positive outlook on life has inspired me to keep pushing forward, and I feel incredibly fortunate to have you as my neighbor and friend. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for being there for me and for making my journey in Canada more meaningful and enjoyable.”

“I would like to use this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude to the stranger with a red Toyota Tacoma who stopped for me at the George and Ferry Street Crosswalk. I was walking back home after a 10-hour shift, tired as hell and nobody stopped for me or the young lady at the other end of the street. Everybody seemed to be in a rush and didn’t seem to notice the pedestrians till this gentleman and his girlfriend stopped for us. Even though your truck was covered in mud, your heart is made of gold. Thank you for the small gesture, it meant a lot for someone like me who is trying to make both ends meet.”

“This is not for a Cape Bretoner but for someone from Cornwall, Ontario. Last Christmas, I was on a road trip to Ontario with my friend and his dog and we were stuck due to the severe blizzard. Our SUV was stuck in snow for at least 6 hours before authorities could even get to us. However, even with their equipment, they could not get us out. Our saviour came in the form of an off-duty fireman, who went under our car to move the snow from our axle, which was the reason we were stuck. When asked afterward, he told us that when he visited the Third, people were nice to him, and he just wanted to return the favour. We didn’t even get to ask for his name. Thank you dear stranger for helping us and Thank You Thirders for inspiring him to help us!”
