Everyone could use a little help - follow the stories of three Canadians doing incredible things



Meet Honore Prentice, Pablo Listingart and Maryam Nabavi.

Like millions of Canadians, they get a little help in their everyday lives from Google’s products, programs and services.

But theirs aren’t everyday stories.

Honore, Pablo and Maryam are the focus of the first three episodes of a 12-part video series we’re debuting called A Little Help; stories where remarkable Canadians accomplish extraordinary things with a little help from technology.

You can watch them now:

As these uplifting stories illustrate, Google’s technologies and programs offer small acts of helpfulness, giving all Canadians a helping hand to achieve amazing things for themselves, their families, their communities, and society at large.
