I had a huge coincidence when my giving card arrived the other day. Earlier that same day, I had received an e-mail from my middle sons school. Over the weekend, two of the students (a kindergartner and a first grader) had their house burn down. Fortunately all the people were OK, but it was a total loss. The community is banding together to get them clothing, food, and the e-mail request was for…gift cards to be dropped off at school. And guess what was waiting for me in the mailbox when I got home?
I immediately knew this must be where the giving card wanted to go. So I sent my son into his school office yesterday with not only the giving card, but also a restaurant gift card we had received as a gift but weren’t going to use. I’m sure after having your house burn down, you could use a good meal out.
Thanks to the Rockstar community this family - who had 9 people living in the house - will be able to get some necessities and rebuild their lives.
