"I told him I just had a kid and if he could take $400 I’d be really grateful. I got home hooked everything up and everything worked great.

"I opened up the dryer to check the lint filter and I was shocked my $400 was sitting in there.

"I got a message from him saying “check the dryer, a gift for the new baby.”

"Man words can not describe how grateful I am right now. I feel so blessed right now I felt I had to share, big shout out to the man David! Thank you so much!"

This person was ready for that washer and dryer to go somewhere else. Big smile 😃. When the person buying told that story so eloquently it gave him an opportunity for that second smile on his face, the smile of giving! That smile will always be with you.

Isn’t it nice when you hear Good news as the News people are always promoting all the bad things that happen in the world instead of acts of kindness

$400 isn’t that much until you don’t have it and need it. So a kind and generous gift.
