Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Clean Computers For The Neighbors


--by diamondriot, posted Sep 5, 2014
We just moved and seriously downsized our home. In the process I gave away many of the things that were special to me. I just didn't see how they could be of value to anyone with their beauty hidden in a box, sitting in storage! 

Last week I promised to get the hard-drives cleaned on two of our computers so our neighbors (whose computers have crashed and who can't afford new ones) can have working computers. 

From the beginning of our marriage my husband and I have given away so much more than we have ever sold. It has always served as a perfect reminder of how blessed we are. We also notice that when we share the other people involved usually share also. It's that old pay-it-forward mentality.

Perhaps my time as often I will say no to my kids as I want to do something for me but today maybe I'll say yes and give away my precious time :)
