Boneyard Joe's posted on their Facebook page that one person, Bobbie Kline, filled all three boxes at their location, but I was blown away when I saw just how many items she actually donated. There were 89 human items (including formula, soap, paper towels, toilet paper, amongst other things), 90 pet food items (including full size bags of Science Diet dog and cat food, plus full cases of canned food) and 5 bottles of laundry detergent. The owner of Boneyard Joe's said Ms. Kline donated all of these items herself and would not accept a free lunch from them for her generosity. Hearing this made me wonder how much better the world would be if everyone did good deeds "just because" instead of looking for what they can get in return. This woman saw that there was a need for items to be donated and quietly came in and supplied them to the cause. Not many people would step up to the plate like her and many of those who did would want something in return. I am happy to know that there is still someone out there who will do a good deed "just because". Actually, this Fill the Media Lab challenge has been going so well that there must be more people like this than we realize. Here are pictures of the dontation made by Ms. Kline. I cannot wait to drop it off at the Pottstown Cluster Monday, as they are in need of pet food at the moment. This one person's kindness will help so many people. I wish I could have met her and thanked her in person. Belle and Chloe give her 4 paws up!
Let's keep the donations coming over the weekend! My goal is to have to make several trips to the Pottstown Cluster and the Boyertown Area Multi Service Center this week because my collection sites all have overflowing boxes!
