Sometimes people are struck down with a life changing event or experience, and through no fault of their own they are forced to fight an uphill battle. Their lives are turned upside-down in an instant or they undergo a constant struggle that may affect them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. This program was set up to be a light along the way to lift their spirits.
Matt and Michelle Carre started the Airdrie Angel program in January 2013. “We were inspired by what Gerry Forbes does on CJAY 92 said Matt Carre, “It’s not life changing money but if we can make someone’s day brighter then we have met our goal”. Michelle added “This is about human spirit, giving back and helping those close to home”.
The human spirit is greater than anything that can happen to it.
Our program is a grassroots organization, not a registered non-profit society or a charity. The Carre Group supports 100% of the administrative portion of this program and we pass along 100% of our donations directly to our recipients.
Here are just a few of the people that the Airdrie Angel program has helped since it started.

Michelle & Matt
We are fortunate to have a great family and a healthy life. We believe in helping others that are doing their best, but can’t catch a break as life has dealt them a bad hand. We believe in the value of a gift from the heart, a lift to the spirit. If this program can help lift spirits and get people on to the next chapter in life, then its done its job.
Matt approached me as he was looking for someone to assist with the administration of the Airdrie Angel Program. When I heard about the program – I said YES! I knew this program aligned with everything that I believe in and I couldn’t wait to help. We all know people who are having a difficult time and to be able to provide a lift during this time is incredibly rewarding – it truly touches your heart. It makes life more worthwhile.

We were looking for a caring grassroots organization we could rally behind and Airdrie Angel spoke to us immediately. The simplicity and directness of the program is what makes it so special to us. We feel privileged to be a part of helping give a lift to the spirit of those that need it. We can’t wait to see how the Airdrie Angel program grows as more people learn about it.
