Tim Adams lives right here #YEG & over the weekend a guy named Tom cut his grass. The tweet Tim sent out just after that, changed Tom’s life:
This is Tom.— tim adams (@TimAdamsCBC) September 8, 2018
Tom is on limited income.
He is trying to make extra money to visit family in Montreal.
He’ll cut your grass for $20.
He did a great job.
He asked me to help him advertise.
Give him a chance.
