Many times I see people in our neighborhoods, community and our city that need help and people fundraise for their issues like cancer, diabetes, poverty, homelessness and heart disease. These are all great causes that affect everyone but the hurricane really only affected the people in that area where it hit.
So why do people have to help? Because people genuinely care and this time that help came right away before the telethons, the celebrity pleas and the Oprah Angels network. People touched others that they may have never known like the family that drove here from New Orleans in one SUV because the other vehicles that they drove were out of gas.
Sometimes life proves to you that there is goodness in the world even though there is much sadness and heartache. I want to say “Thank You” to everyone who sent money, volunteered, sent goods and even a prayer for the Hurricane survivors. This is what it means to lend a helping hand!
