Zero Ceiling

Zero Ceiling

Getting off the street. Learning real life skills. Believing in yourself.”

Zero Ceiling’s Mission is to provide at-risk and homeless youth with housing, employment, professional support and adventure-based learning that empowers them to live healthy and independent lives.

Diamond Delivery was excited to support the ‘Masquerade Gala’ in Fall 2018 by donating two overnight experiences in Vancouver. Elton John’s Concert and a Canucks Game for two which brought in close to $8,000 for Zero Ceiling.

“The Masquerade raised an incredible $125,000! That’s more than enough to support six young people in Zero Ceiling’s Work 2 Live program for an entire year. That means housing, employment, support and adventure for young people who have experienced homelessness.”

 “We believe that mountain experiences are powerful agents for change. All young people should get the chance to breathe mountain air, hear the scrape of a board on snow, feel earth below feet, and wind whooshing past their ears. They should also be given the chance to learn the value of working hard and to feel the pride that comes from building a self-supportive life.”

Zero Ceiling has two incredible programs: Work 2 Live which is a twelve-month life Program and Adventure Sessions getting youth outdoors to breathe, adventure and reset.

Their purpose is to give youth a fresh perspective: a glimpse of the vast and impressive natural world that exists out there, and the confidence and skills to know life has zero ceiling.”

RHF Secures Donation of Fire Trucks To Nations In Need

RHF Secures Donation of Fire Trucks To Nations In Need

Rick’s Heart Foundation has worked with Canadian fire and medical services across the country and secured the donation of a number of operationally ready fire trucks and ambulances. The Foundation is shipping these vehicles to places around the world.

The first vehicles have already been sent: an ambulance by freight to Liberia, Africa, and trucks and ambulances by convoy towards Nicaragua and Central America, where the first 3 fire trucks will be going into service in Mexico early in the new year. There will be many more to come.

These vehicles are incredibly important, but in order to truly build the capacity of these services they must come with expertise as well. It is not enough to just deliver a truck – training is necessary to ensure the vehicles are used effectively and safely.

In order to meet that need Rick’s Heart Foundation is working with groups such as Kamloops Fire Rescue and GlobalFire. These teams provide a way for our own home-grown heroes — skilled and experienced Canadian medics and firefighters — to donate their time to accompany the vehicles and give comprehensive, state-of-the-art professional training to the brave responders receiving them.

Ricks’s Heart Foundation is committed to building on this incredible program, bringing together great Canadian generosity and hard work to help save lives all over the world. We will be looking to deliver up to 5 more vehicles in 2019. Follow us on social media to keep tabs on our progress!
