I Have Been Helped By People Who Don't Even Know Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 28 People

    And I Appreciate It.

    When a friend helps, you are grateful and happy that you have such a friend.When a stranger steps up and lends a had just to be kind, no reward expected, that is a different story. What a blessing to have such friendly strangers.
