Giving

When ever I can I like to give back. In the small town that I grew up in they have a group at the middle school called the Wise Guys. They are all middle school boys whose sole purpose is to do good, be kind. I first found out about them 2 years ago when a young father in the community passed away during surgery. He left behind 3 young boys and his wife was expecting their first daughter. The Wise Guys decided to plan a special day for the 3 boys. They planned a day of  sledding and then out to eat. Each of the 3 boys was able to bring a friend along. I was so touched by this that I told their advisor that I would help in a fund raiser. They developed an order form and sold personalized monogramed 12×12 tiles and the proceeds went for the trip. They sold 61. This year, the community lost a young boy. He was with his dad in a milk truck. For those of you not familiar it is a bulk tank truck that goes from one farm to the next to pick up the milk. It was a winter day and there was an accident and the young boy was killed, the father critically injured. The little boy had a sister in the 6th grade so once again the Wise Guys decided to give her a special day. They contacted me to see if I would be willing to do another fund raiser. This time I gave them several choices to pick form. They sold 140…needless to say, I have been busy.
