Makes Me Feel So GOOD!

Monday I had the best experience!

Isn't her daughter cute?! She was thrilled to be in the studio
Remember Kelly and her story? I've been doing everything I can to help her family out. I immediately set up a donation drive at work, set up a facebook page, I emailed our three news stations, emailed another local daytime show, Ellen and even Oprah.

Because of the all-station email I sent out, Kelly was asked to be on a show on one of our stations. She did a quick interview where she talked about her story and what she now needs for her family.
It was a super emotional time as Kelly is so used to helping other families, she's never asked for anything for her own. But, at the end of the interview, her family was gifted with two laptops for her older sons who have been using library computers to finish their college coursework in  between taking care of their mom and they were also given $1,000 to put towards the van their family so desperately needs!

I don't think there was a dry eye in the studio.  To say that Kelly was shocked was an understatement. I knew about the laptops, but not the money.
As we rounded up the donations we'd collected to send them home with her, Kelly said to me, "I'll never get this (movement on her right side) back, but I've still got my spirit. Next year, I'll be back to take care of those kids."

Kelly's the kind of person who makes me want to quit my job and volunteer for her. After everything she's been through, she's still so concerned about not being able to help any families this year. I only hope that I can raise my Bambinos to be such loving, caring, compassionate people.
