A Canadian teenager named Rebecca Schofield with terminal cancer whose “bucket-list” wish has inspired good deeds across the globe is being recognized in her native New Brunswick with an official day in her honour.
Rebecca who is18 from Riverview, N.B., learned her years-long battle with brain cancer had taken a nasty turn for the worse last December, with doctors giving her only months to live.
As part of her bucket list, Schofield put out a call to her Facebook followers asking them to perform random acts of kindness #BeccaToldMeTo.
Becca’s request took off on social media, resulting in hundreds of people committing altruistic acts in her name.
It soon became part of a worldwide campaign that has even attracted the attention of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.Trudeau tweeted to Becca Schofield on Wednesday.
“It’s my pleasure to recognize Rebecca Schofield for her bravery, volunteerism & inspiring commitment to community,” Trudeau wrote on Twitter, along with Schofield’s signature hashtag #BeccaToldMeTo.
The New Brunswick government has declared the third Saturday of September “Becca Schofield Day,” which will include a day of events being hosted in her honour, with all of the proceeds going to three charities chosen by Becca.
We at KISS-FM totally support these kinds of human motivation undertakings, especially in the light of what the young lady is facing.
So we urge you to go to her Facebook page and continue her pledge.
