On Sunday night after spending a couple of hours scouring Old Navy’s website, I completed an order of close to $350.00. Normally when I order from Old Navy or any online realtor, I know in the back of my mind that I will probably end up returning something so it’s not like I REALLY spent $350. But this time it was different. There is no chance that any of the items will be returned and especially not by me because I bought them for kids I never met after reading this article: Teaching Hope. I looked up the school and their uniform requirements and tried to buy an array of uniforms that may be needed in the various sizes for kids aged 5-14.
Lately I have been feeling this nagging feeling like I should be doing more and not for myself or my family but as a human being. I should be doing more for society as a whole. So I have been thinking of ways to help and this one random act of kindness just fell on my lap and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. And I know I won’t get a tax deduction or anything out of it other than the right to brag here on my blog but it felt great to email the Principal and let her know to expect the order. I also genuinely believe that everything good you put out in the universe comes back to you. Today I emailed Old Navy to see if they would match my order or contribute something, I am still waiting to hear back. Will keep you posted.
