Being A Good Person

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.”
