Any Good Samaritan stories in your area? This makes me proud!

So, at our local walmart, a "secret santa" paid off 35 layways, and it has been happening all along our coast!! People going in and paying off people's layaways...now, at first I was like "Darn, shoulda waited a few days to get mine off, maybe it would've been paid off!" but then it occured to me....I was able to pay it off, and many of these people were trying to figure out how to pay for theirs! Really reminds me of why we are called the Hospitality state, sure, we are number one in obesity and teen pregnancy, but good Ole Mississippi is the number one most charitable and giving state (true story, learned that in Sociology a few weeks ago)!

  • How awesome, I love that some people still have good will in their hearts nowadays when it seems like so many don't. If I could afford to I would love to do something like that!
