MaryAnn Marriott  Chester, NS
I am blessed with the privledge of being able to help offer advice and guidance to those in financial need. Sometimes I am able to help find a solution. Othertimes I am not. Those times make me very sad. I often find myself wishing I had the extra cash to send a grocery store or gas gift card, or pay their outstanding power bill or daycare costs. I can only do so much!

Hi. I'm Mary Ann. People call me Doctor Debt. I am a Licensed Insolvency Trustee. With a heart....a BIG heart!

who am I talking about?
I'm not talking about individuals that simply lack money management skills and overuse their credit. I'm talking about situations where an unexpected illness or death or job loss throws them into turmoil, where assiting them with the debt problem is not enough because their simly isn't enough cash to sustain a basic living.  Where hanging on to their faith in humanity, in the system, is a challenge every day.

what do I want to do?
A kind gesture can go an extremely long way. Imagine having no money for food and a gift card shows up in the mail. Or struggling to find the gas money to get to work, and a gas card shows up. Or maybe your power is going to be disconnected, and you get a statement in the mail showing the balance has been paid in full. Imagine how much joy and faith can be manifested in that moment. I want to give in those moments. You want to give in those moments! I know you do! Let'd do it together. 

how will you know you made a difference?
Sometimes these randon acts of kindness will be made anonymously. Sometimes, in person. With permission of the recipient I will post an update and pictures. In those situations where that is not possible, I will post an udpate on who was helped (msintaining their privacy of course) with an overview their circumstances.

thank you!
Thank you for taking the time to read this, for giving when you felt it was right to do so and for sharing this with others so that we can initiate this 'random acts of kindness' movement.

I started this initiative in hopes of helping those who cross my path if only for brief moments.

Approximately 6 months ago, the person who crossed my path didn’t cross it. She ran smack into it. I can’t explain it. In short, I have become her sole support as she succumbs tod pancreatic cancer.

I can only describe this women as a girl with a HUGE heart and a less-than-ideal childhood. She never broke free of the chains that bound her. Although her strength, unbeknownst to her, comes from a deep place within. She is a beautiful, broken soul.

I’m not one to ask for help. But in this instance, I cannot do it alone. In an effort to help her “wind up her affairs” and fulfill her “dying wish” to payback her debts and care for her 22 year-old half blind cat, I humble myself, and ask for support.

Here’s the thing! She’s a very proud soul and if she saw me post this on Facebook she would be mortified. So I can’t draw upon my support network. All I can do is start with a select few and hoe you will support me (her) by sharing this.

My head is pounding. My eyes are dry. And my heart is being tested. But my faith, my resolve and my faith in humanity is strong. I will do all I can do in this moment and trust that it is enough.

Think about what habits we have that eat up our income - coffee, eating out, frivolous buys that are never used. And then think about how some of those $$$ can really make a difference for someone who is struggling - even a small amount that won't be missed can help put a smile of hope for a struggling senior, parent or child. Give what you can and make a difference - become an angel!
