In honor of Ricardo Hibi, who's life was taken far too soon as a result of senseless violence, we would like to continue his legacy by following through with his wishes to open up a Resource Center he was working  on at 698 Selkirk Ave. 

Ricardo was very passionate about helping at-risk youth, being a mentor and example to young men who were struggling with finding a righteous path in life. Ricardo had opened up a group home for young men who were at risk of being lost in the system, he had built many close relationships with the boys and was very proud to have the oppurtunity to play a role in helping build them up. This was just the beginning for Ricardo's plans of giving back to the community, he began working on another project, which is now in the stages of becoming a resource center in Winnipeg's Northend community. 

Ricardo's wishes would be to follow through with opening and running the resource center, to continue to help our future generations children and offering the community a center they can access.
Ricardo was a very special person who opened his home and heart to many people, he created life long friendships with so many people, there wasnt a time where Ricardo would have refused to help anyone who needed it, which is why it is imperative that we continue Ricardo's legacy and keep his dreams alive.

I ask today, for the communities help in continuing Ricardo's efforts and ensuring that the resource center has a fighting chance to flourish and continue reaching and helping those who need it. All proceeds will go directly to the resource center, to help finish the renovation process, filling hampers, purchasing educational materials, and any other resource materials that will be needed to create a fully operational center.
We appreciate any donations and know that Ricardo would be eternally grateful for everyone's help. If you cannot donate financially, but would like to help, arrangements can be made to drop off gently used toys, clothes, educational materials and perishable items.

All proceeds will be accessed by Ricardo's fiance Candace Woloshyn, who is the sole beneficiary, and taking on the responsibility and ownership of the resource center, just as Ricardo had wished. The proceeds will continue to help pay for supplies for the resource center, and the impoverished families that Ricardo was already working with, ensuring they have food and supplies.

On behalf of Ricardo, and everyone who loves him, thank you for your generosity and support.
