Rick Diamond, along with his company Diamond Delivery, have given back to many amazing charities and groups. In 2012, Rick’s Heart Foundation became an official Canadian Registered Charity and we are still in the process of moving the financial support of these Charities from Diamond Delivery to Rick’s Heart Foundation.
Diamond Delivery has provided the Operation Nicaragua Project (Kamloops Firefighters Charity) and the people of Nicaragua with equipment to improve the lives of thousands of children. Diamond Delivery has also been a financial contributor to make these projects a reality. In the past, Diamond Delivery sent a full playground that is now a permanent fixture in a community in Nicaragua enjoyed by many children daily!
The mission of Make-A-Wish® Canada is to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Diamond Delivery staff have worked hard and raised funds to grant two wishes so far. They are currently working to raise funds to grant their third wish.
Diamond Delivery contributes to the Union Gospel Mission to aid in events such as their annual Thanksgiving dinner, annual summer BBQ (providing our train for the kids) and ongoing funding to help feed the homeless and those whom battle with addictions.
Our Founder Rick Diamond and his company Diamond Delivery has partnered with Compassionate Resource Warehouse to ship a container to Kurdistan, Iraq to help the people of Mosul, Iraq. The container has been unloaded at the warehouse compound in Erbil. There is an amazing volunteer team there busy unloading and separating the items into designated destinations.
The container needed to clear a few customs and checkpoints so took a little extra time to clear. But it made it through.
We are very grateful that it made it there successfully to support the people of Mosul, Iraq.
