A Special Cart for a Special Child

Grocery store trips weren’t easy for 2-year-old Beatrice and her mother Melody. Beatrice’s cerebral palsy prevents her from being able to fit in a standard cart so mom would have to get creative. That was until her grocery store changed everything.  This is an amazing story how a store went out of their way to fill a need and help this family and many others.  Manager Mike saw a need and filled it.  A small jesture that can make life so much better for many families with the same issues.  Now this little girl and her mom can enjoy shopping like other little children.  We are so pleased to share this story today.  This is a store that really cares about the people who shop there.  Since reading this story I have actually seen this cart at our local grocery store in honor of another local little girl.  Does your store have one? If not, stop by the customer counter and ask why. Lets see if we can get a cart in every store.  Wouldn’t that be wonderful?  A simple way to help someone out that could use it.

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!

If You Have A Body You’re An Athlete – FlyEase

This is not just a commercial for Nike.  In fact, it is not a commercial. It may be about Nike  but it about caring for people.  It all started when one of their employees had a stroke and they decided they wanted to do something to help him be able to put his shoes on by himself.  As they were developing this new type of shoe he said, “This is not just for me”.  They realized that they needed to create something for people who needed their help.  They needed to help all people who may need help due to some issue with their body. They got a message on social media from  a high school student Matthew Walzer from Parkland, Florida. Matthew has cerebal palsy. He was wrote he would be soon be going to college and did not want his parents to have to be there to put his shoes on for him.  He is a huge basketball fan. So they designed the shoe to look like a basketball shoe.  LaBron James met him and really made his day.  What a wonderful company to really care about the people who are using their products and not just about profits.  Way to Go Nike!!

Have a GREAT day…by making it a great day for someone else!!!
