Shelley Cook (9/338)

Reason 9/338 – Why I love Winnipeg!

Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and help them become what they are capable of being.

I’ve posted 8 different blogs now about the why Winnipeg is great, but behind the why there is always the who. Enter Shelley Cook.

Shelley started, runs and continues to maintain the Missing Manitoba Women website, bringing desperate attention to the plight of many at risk women, men and children in our communities.

Because of Shelley’s efforts many women have been found and re-acquainted with their loved ones.  She is often the only flicker of light in a grim situation, but it is amazing how much light just one lone candle makes in a darkened room.

You can follow them on twitter at @MissingManitoba keep up-to-date on facebook and help Shelley ensure that gone does not mean forgotten.

Yeah. I love Winnipeg because of people like Shelley.
