Here in Warren County, where I live, there is a Wounded Warrior Project going on. The company I work for donated a dump-truck to the project for a whole day and I got to be the lucky one to drive it. I spent about 10 hours hauling top-soil to fix the yard and landscape area of this project.
The veteran was a triple amputee that was wounded in Afghanistan by a land mine. People, companies, and organazations in the community bound together to build this veteran a house…free! That’s right. I said free! All day I couldn’t stop thinking how awesome it was that people still do good things! No matter the economy or what’s going on, people are still willing to help people!
I think this is what it’s all about. Helping others! It shouldn’t be just a Christian thing. Or an organization thing. It should be a human thing! I just touches my heart to see that their are those kinds of people out there. Those that are willing to give their time, money, or gifts to help those in need. Especially soldiers that paid the price for us to live in a free country, with the freedoms we have.
My hat goes off to this gentleman and all the other soldiers who have given the ultimate sacrifice!! Again, it was such a great honor to be able serve on this project. If you have an opportunity to help someone, please do! It is such a great and wonderful experience!
Have you ever had the opportunity to be a part of a giving project?
What was your experience?
