“Rave! My family witnessed something truly heartwarming last night. We were at Target in the grocery department, and a lady placed a $20 bill in the cart of an older gentleman when he wasn’t looking. He was having a hard time getting around, and his clothes were tattered and dirty. He had just a few items. She disappeared by the time he noticed the money, but we were there to catch his response. He kept examining the money; I don’t think he realized it was real. My husband told him that a lady placed it there and kept walking. He was so happy. He kept saying, “That was so nice,” and mentioned that he was low on Social Security. My 7-year-old son witnessed this, and it was another lesson in helping others. We always try to do things for others and give when we can, but actually seeing someone else do it as well made an impact.”
