Berlyn rescued me from the pissing rain, his huge smile lighting up an otherwise gloomy Front Street and his contagious laugh allowing me to forget the weather. Berlyn is a wonderful man and a ride in his cab is so much more than a simple journey from A to B; it's a lesson in positivity. I couldn't help myself but blurt out an invitation to take part in Wearelucky.
Berlyn went home to check out the website and then contacted me with a fabulous idea. He wanted to pass on the money to customers in his cab – a kind of mini-Wearelucky with participants selected on the basis of a 2 minute conversation. If Berlyn reckoned a passenger needed a helping hand, then he'd pass on some of the money right there and then. Fantastic! One thing is for sure, if Berlyn wasn't already the most popular taxi driver in Bermuda, he certainly is now.
Questions & Answers
1. What were your first thoughts and feelings when propositioned with Wearelucky?
My first thought was that it was a joke, but I was so glad when I found out that it was real.
2. What have you decided to do with the money?
I decided to pass the money on to 4 people. I wanted to make 4 people very happy and I just wish you could have seen their faces. It was like I gave them a million dollars.
3. Has Wearelucky challenged the way you think about giving?
I've always given and I always will. The more you give, the more it comes back to you, but it's enough just to see someone smile. I feel blessed. I will always be part of this and I want to carry on doing this with much smaller amounts of money.
