  • Stranger paid bill at Headingley Grill

    07/25/2014 2:00 PM

    MY husband and I had lunch at Headingley Grill restaurant on June 14.

    When my husband went to pay the bill, our server said another customer had paid it.

    We did not find out the name of this person, but we want to thank them for this random act of kindness.

    We will pass the kindness on to others.

  • Welcome help from women

    07/24/2014 2:00 PM

    ON two separate occasions, I had two beautiful ladies offer me assistance when I was in need.

    The first time, a young girl saw me struggling with grocery bags. It was raining hard, and I had a lot of bags and was alone. She helped me carry them for several blocks. She was such good help. I always knew the youth in this city were awesome — now it has been proven. Thank you so much. On the second occasion, I had two big bags and several smaller bags. This beautiful lady stopped me and offered me help. She was such good help, too.

    I feel so lucky to have had such beautiful ladies offer me their gift of helping. I will pay it forward when I see someone who needs help.

  • Mom returned missing wallet

    07/23/2014 2:00 PM

    I WOULD like to thank a young mom for returning a wallet our student had lost.

    One of the international students we host went on his first shopping trip with friends by bus. On his way home from Polo Park, he lost his wallet. It contained important identification, as well as $70.

    We called Winnipeg Transit and retraced his steps, but nothing showed up. Two days later, a young mom came to the door and asked if somebody had lost a wallet. She had found it on Watt Street when she walked her son to school that morning.

    The ID and other important documents were there, minus the money.

    Thank you to this wonderful lady, who drove all the way to our house to return it to the anxious student.

    I did not ask her name, but what a great example she is to her children and our international students.

  • Help on a hot day

    07/22/2014 2:00 PM

    IN the midst of May’s heat wave, I set out to buy two kiddie pools for my dogs. I found what I needed at Walmart’s garden centre.

    I bought the large pool. No problem, I thought, because I have a mid-sized car. As I was dragging these pools through the parking lot, a lady offered to help me carry them to my car.

    Turns out it was a problem: They wouldn’t fit in the back seat.

    I was going to tie them to the roof, but the lady who came to my help said, "I’ll just check with my husband. We have a truck and can take them to your house."

    Sure enough, this lady and her husband loaded the pools in their truck and took them to my home. I offered them money for their time and gas, but they wouldn’t accept it.

    Thank you to this couple, who were so gracious and kind on such a hot day. They went above and beyond being kind to another person. It really restores a person’s faith in the human race.
