Have you seen that commercial from Liberty Mutual where they show people doing the right thing? Individuals watch someone do what’s right and then they follow suit and do something nice for others. It’s a do-good chain reaction. I love those commercials. They get me all choked up inside every time I see them. Don’t you wish you could watch something like that unfold in your neighborhood? I believe that people are genuinely good and ultimately want to do the right thing. Frankly, I need to believe that — it keeps me sane. Seriously, I actually know that people right here close to my home make good things happen everyday, but I’m just not a witness to it all. Think through the last couple of weeks and hone in on a few of the many good deeds done that would typically go unnoticed. In fact, I want to call out a few of the good deeds I’ve noticed in our hometown. There are so many great people in our lives making this community the best one (as far as I’m concerned). Here it goes:
- Tom Ruis from Independent Bank donated his 50/50 winnings back to the Lansing City Rescue Mission during this year’s CAWLM Lady Classic.
- Julie Becker, our CAWLM production gal, out of the kindness of her heart, designed the bra that Shelley Davis Mielock and I will be donating to the It’s a Breast Thing event that will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 4 at Eagle Eye.
- Taylor Kelsaw, a new member of the Motion Marketing & Media family, brought back German chocolates from his vacation for the office. He didn’t have to do that, but we’re all glad he did
- Lisa Kost, a CBRE associate, is a great friend. Although I can’t mention in this publication what she’s done specifically to help those around her, believe me when I say, she consistently gives so much of herself to those who need her.
