Being A Good Person

Sep 16, 2015 04:50PM ● Published by Erik Dittmann

This could be viewed as a simple story, a simple act of kindness from one to another in need.

To begin - it was brought to our attention by one of our advertisers, Louis Holz with PC Systems Around You, that a really cool story was developing on the Beaver Dam Buy/Sell Trade site. Kyle Funck posted a request titled “Being a Good Person.” He told the story of how he noticed his neighbor was having trouble keeping her lawn mowed. He was concerned about her welfare. Further inquiry led him to find out that her mower wasn’t working well all summer and she couldn’t afford to replace it. Kyle is an Army Veteran and unable to mow the lawn for her due to his own disabilities, but he wanted to find another way to help. He crowdfunded donations, enough to pay for a brand new lawnmower for her. A total of 14 people dropped off their donations and several of them came to the unveiling of the gift. It took less than 24 hours for people to commit and drop off the money.

There isn’t much more to say than how wonderful it is to see someone do something for a neighbor with no ulterior motive and wanting nothing in return. I am always impressed with what this community is able to do.

 "How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”  Anne Frank
