Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The Garage Sale


--by Bibirose, posted May 28, 2007

All kinds of people come to garage sales in the hope of finding a treasure at a bargain basement price!  Most of our customers are treasures without truly realizing it.

We started our 4 day garage sale today to raise money to send over to Russia to help orphans & many  others who are in desperate need  -- like 2 sisters who can't go to church together because they only have one nice dress between them!

Back to the garage sale:-  along with our usual items, we also put out a donation box & jokingly asked if people could  a spare million or so for a good cause!

Much to our surprise, many people donated in that box and their simple kindness will touch many lives; some folks even volunteered to help us out.  

With the donations & sales we netted over $300.  And just think, this is only the first day!
