Dean Gifford

A kind policeman is hard to come by these days but Dean Gifford is more than kind, he is one of those unsung heroes that I’ve been thinking of lately.  Despite his own illness, fighting a brain tumor Dean Gifford was thinking for others who were sick, how selfless was that !  Usually, when I’m sick I just wanna be by myself and want everyone to pity me and pay attention to me – but Dean not only befriended kids in the same hospital as he was, he also made arrangement for police dogs to visit the kids. He had also been sending toys, clothes, medical supplies and other needed donations for the kids in Solomon Island.

At first it started with his friends and co-workers and it extended to asking for help from business owners and bigger companies – asking for donations of toothbrushes, toothpastes and things that the children can use.  Helicopter rides and limousines to Weta with guided tours for the kids.  It’s men like Dean Gifford that makes me want to go out and help the world too.
