Zayde Wisdom gives $5,000 to the Salvation Army

Zayde Wisdom has a lot of class. He grew up in poverty in Weston, and his family struggled to get by. You could celebrate him, then, spending his first big cheques from the Philadelphia Flyers on something that would be a hell of a lot of fun.

Instead, Zayde Wisdom gave $5,000 to the local Salvation Army.

What a guy.

Wisdom told the OHL, “I have a lot of tough memories, so my goal one day is to just help as many kids as possible from struggling growing up,” he said, “ I just want to give back to the community that gave so much to me.”

  1. Couple of things that are hard to believe..

    First, that hockey tournament organizers are still ploughing ahead in Edmonton preparing for the World Junior Hockey Championships this year with many visiting kids already checking in, positive.

    I wish them all good health.

    Secondly (and given what we’ve ready learned about this young man from the Weston area playing for the Kingston Frontenac), is that he was not knowingly invited to try out for our national team to represent in Edmonton, this year after all he’s accomplished and the way in which he’s been acknowledged in the OHL.

    I can’t believe for a second that he would not bring the leadership, skills and determination to help the Junior squad succeed.

    But, for now and as much as I “hate” those damn Flyers, I’m really looking forward to seeing him in that ugly orange uniform, one day.

    There are still many miles to go..
    a stride at a time.

    Good job, young man.
