This was on Facebook. It not only shows that there are still good people in the world, but good children also. Obviously this little girl is being taught well and being brought up right, and she is certainly learning it well. We should all do our part to keep America beautiful and not all littered up. Ryleigh is going to go far in this world if she keeps up her good deeds and works hard.
We want to help spread this kindness. To Ryleigh, you are officially our first Cart Hero of 2020 and your good deed will not only be met with a golden cart trophy, but free school supplies for your entire classroom. To associate CJ, we’re going to make a $5,000 donation to a charity in his name for truly exemplifying what it means to live better.
Yesterday when leaving Walmart, Ryleigh noticed people not returning shopping carts and how were scattered everywhere. It “irritated” her that people weren’t following the rules or being kind. She spotted
grabbing shopping carts and putting them up. She looked at me and asked if she could help. She wanted to help him because, “That’s what we are supposed to do. We are supposed to be kind.” So she and I started to gather carts and push them to the store. Cart after cart, she pushed them to CJ. (It’s hard work pushing a line of carts, btw.) After 30 minutes or so, we pushed our last cart to Cj. Ryleigh ran to high five him and we parted ways.
Today we got out at Walmart and Ryleigh spotted a cart pushed on the curb. She immediately grabbed it and pushed it to the store, where she spotted her new friend working hard again.Alittle while later while browsing the toys, CJ walks up and hands Ryleigh a thank you card with $20. After reading the card she went around the aisle to hug him. Oh my heart.
Thank you Cj for the card. It truly meant alot! Ryleigh put the card on her dresser so it would remind her to always be kind. You now have a new friend with her.
I challenge everyone, to be kind today to someone. Do a random act of kindness, just because.
