Paying it Forward ~ Neighbor Helping Neighbor
Paying it Forward, Random Acts of Kindness, or being nice to each other. Whatever you choose to call it, it’s important. Now you may be thinking, how do these random acts of kindness play into my couponing? Couponing isn’t only about saving money, it’s about improving your life. How much better would your life be if there were lots of kind people in it.
Although I have always believed in paying it forward, some events hit closer to home than others. On September 20, 2019 there was an explosion and subsequent fire at my neighbor’s home. Their home as well as the home behind them was a total loss. One of the homes was uninsured but both families have a tough road ahead. They have lost everything they own. Thankfully, everyone was able to get out of the homes safely.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to aid the families and one of our local newspapers (The Conway Daily Sun) has reached out in an effort to spread the word. If you would like to donate to the GoFundMe page or if you would be willing to share the link, it can be found HERE. Any help would be appreciated by these families.
Our local Aubuchon Hardware has also stepped up and will be collecting donations. Their store is located in front of the neighborhood that was affected. When they first saw the fire, before the emergency responders arrived, the Store Manager rushed to the scene with several employees armed with fire extinguishers trying to do anything they could to help.
