Something unusual and significant is happening in Toronto, quietly and under the radar, but it won’t be for long, until this heart-warming story catches national attention.
Every other Sunday afternoon and Tuesday evening, people from all walks of life gather at the residence of Dr. Paul T. P. Wong for regular Meaningful Living Group Meetup.
Participants come from all ethnic backgrounds and different walks of life: Graduate students, retirees, mental health professionals, entrepreneurs, accountants, engineers, and stay-home moms.
