Jacqueline’s Story

One of the very best things about Gather My Crew is that any one can use it.

Anyone can be THAT person. The one who puts their hand up to coordinate help for someone needing support.

In this story, it was Jacqueline.

Jacqueline was not the partner. She was not the sister. She was not the best friend. Jacqueline was a work colleague. A colleague that saw another person in need of help – and then made it happen.

Here is how Jacqueline tells her story…

I coordinated help using Gather My Crew for our work colleague who sadly lost her husband.

I sent a request out and lots of colleagues downloaded the app. People were more than happy to help out. So many people said what a great idea it was getting it all done with the help of the app.

Our friend could not believe all the help she was receiving from work colleagues.

We focused on scheduling drop offs of essentials, such as bread and milk, dinners, baked goods and fruit.

It provided her with support during the time and for many weeks after.

She was extremely grateful.

Remember this story next time someone in your ‘orbit’ is struggling.

Perhaps you can be THAT person…
