“4 suitcases, 3 car seats, 3 kiddos and one me. How I planned on getting from the rental car place to the check-in at the airport is beyond me. But thankfully, 5 amazing, complete strangers came to my aid and helped me the entire way! Until I was checked in! THESE people are who make the world a better place!! #thankyou”

Andrea

Andrea was outside of her local Target when she saw a boy selling candy. As Andrea and her mom were walking away, a lady walked up to the boy and told him she wanted to see his license to sell. The lady started harassing this boy to the point where he started to cry. A group of people started telling the lady to leave him alone. Finally a man came up and told the lady she should be ashamed of herself. The man asked the boy how much candy he had. This gentlemen purchased every piece of candy the boy had ($80 worth) and started giving the candy away to the group of people. Andrea said, “There are good people and bad people in this world and I saw it firsthand.”

He smiled and said he would love to. Continue reading “Kelly”

This quote was constantly on my mind this past week. As of now, everyone has heard of the devastating shooting that happened at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando. It is absolutely heartbreaking that someone could be filled with so much evil and hatred. Unfortunately there are bad people in the world. In times like these it helps to do as Mr. Rogers said and “look for the helpers”. So this post is dedicated to highlighting some of the many helpers. Continue reading “Orlando”
