Helping Make Dreams Come True – BMO’s #HelpGiven Story

BMO's Help Given Campaign - #helpgiven

Do you dare to dream?

Sometimes day to day life gets so busy that we forget to dream about what the future can bring. Having dreams are necessary. Without dreams, there will be no ambition to chase. With a goal to reach, it is like following an invisible shadow. We must know what we want to do and follow that ambition. We can’t achieve anything in life without goals, and for these goals, we need to dream.

Young or old, most people have dreams, whether they are big or small, dreams give a purpose to live your life.  As long as you will start working hard towards the dream and will never lose interest in life. You will never tire and always be motivated.

BMO #HelpGiven | Catherine’s Dream

Catherine is 91 year old BMO banking customer with a dream of her own. She invented GlamorEyes, a beauty product that helps shield the area around the eyes while women apply mascara and eye shadow.  For the past 10 years she’s been working to bring her invention to women all over the world. Watch this touching video (above) to see how BMO’s help has made it possible to make her dreams come true, even at her precious age.

The holiday season is a great time of joy and happiness. It’s a time we celebrate the most important people around us, by the simple act of giving and sharing. The #HelpGiven campaign by BMO has truly warmed my heart and inspired me to help others make their dreams come true and I hope it has done the same for you.

No matter who you are or what you do, you always have someone who gave you your start and enabled you, just as BMO’s #HelpGiven campaign has helped Catherine achieve her dream. So this season, I urge you to make an effort to help those around us, whether it be something big or small. Remember, help is unique to the giver and receiver and never one-size-fits-all.

Take a moment to share Catherine’s touching #HelpGiven story and help someone achieve their dream. Dreams can come true for everyone, regardless of who they are, where they come from and of course, at any age, as Catherine has courageously shown us.

Share with me what your dream is and the important people who have helped you along the way. I love hearing your stories!
