Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Planting Seeds


--by cabbage, posted Sep 11, 2023
The local cafe that employs folks who are differently-abled is going through a tough time financially. They have weathered the pandemic and many other financial storms, but I had never seen the owner so discouraged---I gave her big hugs and told her I am going to find someone on the city council who can at least listen and hopefully help.

Just heard back from my council member that they will schedule a zoom meeting and I have asked the owner to be there so she can share her story.

Feel good about bringing these two strong women together to hopefully find a solution! You all know I call this place the "kindness cafe" and have brought many people there to witness the magic. Its impact on the community cannot be measured in dollars.

Helping a friend find student volunteers for a community science outreach event. Though I can't be there, hopefully some of my former students will show up!
