At the Laundry Mat.

Like every Sunday morning I got up and dragged my butt to the laundry mat.  I was standing there folding my laundry when a chick about my age came up to me and asked if I had a little girl.  I said yes.  Then she asked me where she could find sleepers for 24month size.  I told her to go to Target because they usually have them, or Children's Orchard, a second hand store for kids. 

Come to find out she was at the laundry mat the weekend before, and it was super busy.  She said she had loads in different areas all over the mat, and at some point someone took all of her little girls clothes.  That made my heart sink!

Then, I realized somewhere in my house I have a bag full of my daughters old clothes.  I told, Lisa is her name, that if she called me next weekend I would give her my daughters clothes.  They are just sitting there taking up space.  She was so thankful and wrote down my number.  I always save my daughters clothes just in case I come across someone who needs them.  I never give them to thrift stores, because I would rather give them to someone for free.   

In this economical challenging time, I really feel like we should all help each other out, even if it is as small as giving clothes to people who really need it.

that is a really touching story :D

The world is a better place because people like you live in it!
Thanks for sharing! made me feel good!
keep up the good work!

Awwww that's so sweet of you <3 I am just like you I love helping people I just wish I could do it more often I love going to the soup kitchen to help out and serve food there to the people it feels great to help people in need. :) May God Bless you :) <3

u re so gentle woman !!!

It feels good when you do the right thing doesn't it? I recently decided to give up one clothing article from my closet ever time I buy a new cloth. Not only it frees up your space, it is also the right thing to do. Great job

Nice person in hard world
Nice heat your out there .
Shame on all who just dump good stuff in garbage .

That's life

I totally agree with you and God will bless for that.

test check

Spread the good!!

What you did was not charity, you did it for braging rights: 'look how much of a good person' I hear you say. Shame on you.

I don't think that this was her intent. It was a nice gesture, and I, and others, seem to be glad that she shared this story. So go easy, my friend.

hi

You're a kind and generous soul. I'm sure you will be repaid someday in some way.

Very good!

Respect to yahh my sis.

You, my dear, have a heart of gold. These are the kinds of things my wife does, too, which is why I decided to marry her. The fact is, over time we both feel we have saved each others' lives on occasion and for any young man looking for a young lady - please look at her heart and if you do, and you like what you see, you can't go wrong.

you really did a nice thing.. By offering help to people and provide the needy ones with whatever thing that might help them, we people feel that the world is still a safe and beautiful place. Your neighbor is very lucky to have you near her.

Er, laundromat. Just sayin

i think it would be better if this sentence was droped from your communication<br />
They are just sitting there taking up space.

You are such a good person, love this story!!! but .. maybe someone should tell you that it's not "laundry mat", the word is Laundromat.

Your kindness speaks volumes about you, and I for one, am happy to hear about it. Simple kindness is so very valuable in this very cold world! I too save my kids clothes and give them away when they outgrow them.. I used to pass them on to friends with younger kids also, i mean we were all in the same kind of boat: young, unmarried, with child (or kids) and just trying to make ends meet, and still feed our families.Those were seriously memorable times and I thank God for the experiences.

I really consider this website demands extra interest. <br />
I will probably be back again to examine additional, many thanks for the information.<br />
A person point I just would like to say is always that your Site is so excellent valuable for us.<br />
I hope you'll hold in posting new articles & many thanks for sharing your great experience among us.

That's nice and I've donated clothes that don't fit me to a Careaide centre called Polson and some to a free clothing depot.

I too am pleased that you offered the woman your child's clothing and that she accepted. Gestures like yours happen throughout the world but is not often recognized beyond a few people. Perhaps this is just as it should be, nameless/faceless. I call these acts "Soulfood" because the benefit I've received from giving or receiving warms that place within me that I call my spirit. Selling even at a incredibly discounted price sometimes robs one of the Soulfood benefits. Good deeds for the sake of goodness. Not sure about you, but I was not always in a position to give much of anything to anyone else. These days, well if I haven't used it in a few years I could most likely live without it. ~Ciao

How sweet and thoughtful of you.

You are a good hearted person. Good to hear people like you still exhist in this screwed up world.

"I never give them to thrift stores, because I would rather give them to someone for free." You have a heart thats made up of so much love and its very contagious. Thank-you

Very lovely story! I just yahood this group in my city and will hopefully join in in short order (i have to be accepted by the moderator).<br />
<br />
Very happy about the prospect! Most of my clothes are 2nd hand anyways, and i have a few household items that could use a good new home!

So lucky you find people you can give away your clothes to, I don't know I feel bad thinking about giving old clothes away because I don't want the person I give it to, think I'm just giving them the ***** I don't need. <br />
<br />
Because I feel bad if the person don;t appreciate it and think I'm just giving out rubbish.

inc28, yeah, so many fond memories to place on the hearth. Or did you mean heart? =-D

Seems with all the extra time you have to correct everybodys misspellings, you could have spent that time doing good deeds.
