Compassion/Empathy

Kindness and the Avalanche of Love

“Large and small donations came in, but it wasn’t the amount of money given, it was the pure desire of each person to give what they can and express their compassion and love.”

When Louise and her daughter set out to make a difference, they never envisioned that their act of kindness and compassion would start an avalanche of love.

“My friend’s 9 year old little boy has Cystic Fibrosis (CF), a genetic disease with no cure that affects the lungs and digestive system. My daughter and I love this family and admire their courage and unwavering faith in G-d to see them through.”

Louise and her 12 year old daughter set off on a quest to raise awareness and money to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.

“My daughter and I went around to local businesses asking for donations. She did all the talking and told everyone about her friend who was suffering. As a mom, I am so proud to see my daughter show so much love and compassion for her friend and wanting so much to help find a cure for him and others battling with CF”

“I was so overwhelmed by the generosity of the people we approached for donations. Not only did the business managers and employees contribute, but their customers donated as well. We collected $285 in 2 hours.”

A small desire to make a difference inspired Louise and her daughter to approach their local community as well who they found to be anxious to make a difference in any way they could.

It’s true what they say, one act of kindness begets another.
