Charitable Giving Heros – “Only The Good” Friday
May 15, 2009 · Print This Article
Charitable giving is nothing new to Nick Giordano, a teen hero who has contributed thousands of dollars to the “Make A Wish Foundation”… using his unique talent.
We all have unique talents we can share… and it does not need to have a monetary value attached to it. Most often, a helping hand, and a listening ear can often be of more value than cash. My brother-in-law, Dew, mows my lawn once a week. Oh how I appreciate the help. He whips around my yard in his commercial riding mower in no time at all and it save me hours of time… not counting the fact he trims around the edges to boot. He’s my hero!
My friend, Linda, who has retired from teaching Art in high school willing shares her talent. She is skilled at poster and sign designer and paints them by hand.. no less. When our church or a neighbor needs a welcome banner…who do they call? Linda is away waiting and willing to give. She’s a charitable giving hero to many people.
I belong to a business forum on the Internet called the Milagroworld Forum. I have received help for my business from folks from all over the globe. From Maine, Mississippi, Nevada, Denmark, Tennessee, Texas, California, Canada, Australia…Gulf Of Mexico (the fellow lives on a sails boat.)… a finer group of folks cannot be found… and all willing to share their “know how.”
These are virtual heros… because I have never met them face to face.
On this “Only The Good” Friday, I want to share Nick’s “goodness” and his unique talent with you.
Way to go Nick! We are blessed to be a part of the most charitable nation in the world. We all have something to share and contribute… and we probably do more than we think. Yeah, good for us!

P.S. My sister Sheila is my hero. She comes to my rescue frequently and is so willing to give and share. She what she’s up to on this “Good” Friday.
