A Comox Valley Dao group is now working closely with the homeless and low income persons.

The goal is to set them up with bank accounts, convert them from traditional cigarette smokers to electronic cigarettes,  introduce them to natural sleep remedies such as ginger and melatonin and  unlock those stuck in addiction, depression, co-dependency and entitlement.

One Dao member works at Presidents Choice Financial inside Courtenay Superstore and is now offering “no fee banking”, no picture ID required, and no hold on direct deposits as well as free groceries shopping points each and every time the card is used.

Another Dao member is the author of  an online book and blog www.canichangeit.com aimed at unlocking those battling addiction, depression, co-dependency and entitlement as well as educating the public on the benefits of switching from traditional cigarettes to electronic cigarettes claiming the cost of a carton of regular cigarettes is over $100, while electronic cigarettes cost only $5 per carton.

“All natural melatonin and ginger tea has helped so many fall to sleep at night when other medications have failed,”  said another Dao member.
