Thurs. January 11th. - Jim Estill - "His Story of Sponsoring Syrian Refugees"
Presentation Description Since beginning this journey of bringing Syrian refugees to my hometown, Guelph Ontario Canada, the question I’ve been asked repeatedly is “why?” So it is a question that I’ve naturally given a lot of thought. Why choose to help this cause and not others? Why choose to go to all the trouble? Why choose to give so much time and money to people I’ve never met? But that’s just it—it wasn’t a choice at all. The answer circles back to one of my personal mantras that has done me well in both business and life: Do the right thing.
I like to read. A lot. I read books, news articles, anything to further my own knowledge. Because of my unending curiousity, in 2015 I kept a close eye on what was happening in the Middle East and Syria. The stories and images broke my heart. It wasn’t a choice. I had the means and opportunity to help, so I did.
