“I WON?!,” Angie kept repeating on the phone.
“Really? I won?!”
I had a pair of Lady Antebellum concert tickets to give away and I thought it would be best to give them to someone who deserves it. So, I started my contest: the hunt for a deserving and giving person.
I had some wonderful and touching emails about great people with giving hearts and I thank every single person who submitted those stories.
But one email in particular caught my eye.
It was the story about Angie Flaig – an Alberta mother of two who recently lost her high school sweetheart and husband to a vehicle collision near Calgary last May. This is what her brother-in-law Darcy had to say about her:
“Hi Jasmine, I would like to nominate my sister in law Angie Flaig. It has been a very tough year for us as a family, my brother and her husband Dave Flaig was killed in a single vehicle accident on May 13,2011. My two nephews have now become a huge part of my life. Through all the heart ache, sadness and tears Angie continues to work two jobs and spends a lot of time volunteering for her oldest sons minor hockey team. Angie, even through this difficult time continues to put the needs of others ahead of hers! I am so blessed to have this incredible person in my life and feel that she deserves some recognition for everything she does. Angie is a giver and is always offering to help people out, she is an incredible mom and a incredible person. I am nominating her because its the least I could do for an amazing friend I love you Angie!”
I hope you have a wonderful night and sing your heart out to Lady Antebellum! I am honoured to have been able to give such a deserving person this night out
All my best,
