A NEW HOUSE FOR FREE

Yesterday I told you about our local school kids from John Paul College who raised enough money to help rebuild a house for a young couple who lost everything in the flood and they didn't have enough money to rebuild. Tonight this article was on Chanel 7 News. It is about the family moving in.

  6. Diane, what a gorgeous and sweet story. And to know these students were so active in it as well as the hard work. Please thank them from this old lady in the US, and let them know if they are ever in the US and
    Tennessee I would love to meet them and have them share my guest bedroom too.

  15. Oh Diane, That is AWESOME... Made me teary.... (I always cry at happy endings!!! Joyful tears I'm sure)...

    Reminded me of our Habitat for Humanity in this country. People (mostly from various churches and mostly adults) build new homes for people in need. It's an awesome project which has been going on here across our country for years.

    That video is awesome... I'm so impressed with those young people.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  17. I don't know them and I'm sitting here crying. :)
    I commented on your last post about how well behaved and orderly the students had been. I watched this to see some really amazing youngsters with lots of heart compassion and so well versed.
    Thanks for sharing the update Diane. It's a wonderful story.

  19. Kindness in action - the very best kind!

    Would that we all were so willing to share and show generosity!

  20. That is a wonderful for that couple. Didn't see the program.

    I often wonder why certain people are chosen as this couple were to get their house rebuilt etc. for free when there are so many others out there just like them, same situation. It's a thing that I don't understand and probably never will.
    At the same time, good luck to them :)
