Another day of good news for you. So, get something good to eat, take a seat, and on the table goes your feet.
This peice of news touched me. All this guy did was return a lost wallet. He’s homeless. And, because of returning that wallet, well:
The hotel general manager, Scott Stuckey, said he wanted to offer the man a reward for doing the right thing. When Hartman returned to the hotel Friday night, Stuckey offered him a room, $500, food and new clothes.
But that was just the beginning. Since learning of Hartman’s story, dozens of people have offered to help him.
“We’re getting calls from people from all over the United States, from Hawaii, Canada,” Stuckey said Monday. “They’re all people wanting to know what they can do to help.”
Cash, gift cards and clothes have been brought to the downtown hotel. Others have offered Hartman holiday meals, jobs and even housing until he’s back on his feet.
Yeah. We need to reward our heroes. Let the world know we appreciate people doing the right thing. We give so much attention to people that have done bad; it almost doesn’t even matter if we’re trying to make a positive difference.
Do the right thing. It will gratify some people and astonish the rest. Mark Twain
So true. Sadly, part of that is because we don’t expect people to do the right thing anymore. We have to get to a place where we almost shrug when we hear about an heroic act because we’re so used to seeing and hearing about such acts.
Charlie Sheen has made a couple of key donations this month. First, he donated $10,000 to The Walk To End Epilepsy charity, which aids children living with the disease. Very recently, he also donated $25,000 to the People’s Recovery Empowerment Development Assistance (Preda) Foundation.
The money given by the actor will help find children who went missing during the typhoon, as well as provide food for shelters.
Awesome. Love hearing when celebrities make these types of moves.
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world — the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does — comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2:15-17
Thanks to a couple of kids being observant, they saved a home from potentially being consumed by fire.
And so, that ends another day of good news. Glad you could stop by.
