There were two stories of “We didn’t have very much once, and now we can give because others helped us get on our feet.” I stood in one person’s closet with her as she opened up bins of baby clothes and just dumped them into a bag for this family. Two kiddos in the neighborhood rode up on their bikes with beaming smiles and a couple of bags of clothes. I met another woman (for the first time!) in a parking lot who pulled two additional bags out of her car to say, “I asked my neighbor if she had anything and she showed up with two huge bags of brand new gifts for each person in their family.”
YOU DID THIS!!!
People are so awesome. Thank you. We might never know what this means to this family, but I know how much you all mean to me and I LOVE YOU!!!
