Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The Bus Outside Walmart


--by megs, posted Nov 13, 2007

Last week, while visiting Walmart, my 6 year old and I noticed a school bus parked in front of the store.  Before entering the store, a lady handed us a list of school supplies to put on the bus.  It was a program sponsored by United Way to donate school supplies to  under privileged children.

My son and I had a ball shopping for the bus!!  They let him take the supplies on the bus, and actually sit in the bus!!  This was such a thrill for my 6 year old because he's never been on a school bus, but has always wanted to. :)

Sometimes you give, and immediately receive!

Oh, and I made sure I sliped one of the smile cards in the bag before he placed it on the bus.  Maybe one of the kids, or a worker for the program will get the card. :)
