People Amaze Me!

This all started with this simple post on a local site named nextdoor:


Pay it forward

Folks, if you are rich enough to have a housekeeper, you are rich enough to pay their wages for a few weeks while they stay home with their families. Pay it forward, please.

***************************************************************************************************



I was so touched by the responses to the above post that I posted this and 72 people responded to me offering me all kinds of help from going shopping for me to walking my dog! Whenever you feel the least down about people know they will do the right thing in a crisis!


Martin Goodkin,

A THANK YOU post.


As an 84 year old man with COPD, PAD, diabetes, aorta valve replacement, etc. and no car I really want to say how much I appreciate those of you offering your help.
I hope I never need it but I truly think it is great of you.


I live in a government subsidized complex with approximately 300 people 62 and over and I don't know what help the government or the owners here will give us but it is comforting to know you are willing to help.

If and when testing becomes available it will be a problem for many of us to go/get to the testing place so be ready--I might call you! :O)

Even if I never have to call you for help I just want you to know when I am 'fighting' you over what politicians do or don't do, what the city is doing or not doing, what restaurant or movie I hated and you loved I WILL remember many of the posts here on nextdoor that I have read today.

LOVE YOU ALL!
