Two Good Tuesdays

After a couple of Tuesdays without a dedicated Good News Tuesday, it is about time for another edition.

I ran across the first one today, but the story is from last week. It is a story of how people from all over the world heard about a family in need of financial help to keep their house. They needed $10,000 (US Dollars) in 2 weeks to keep their house from foreclosure. That was their financial situation after mechanical problems, health problems, job loss and an unexpected pregnancy. A friend posted an entry on her blog about the families situation and word spread. Read the story for a great tale of Christmas spirit.

I read another story about some folks that anonymously paid off layaway items for some Sears customers before Christmas. I think this another great story because the donors are not doing this for publicity, but just to help some people have a little better Christmas. They chose to payoff necessities like children's clothes, shoes and even some toys. Read the story here.

Like I've said before, there is enough negative news going around. Let's take a few minutes to remind ourselves that there is still some good left in the world and try and think of ways we can add to the good to make the bad a little less bad.

Please leave your comments with any good news stories you have heard or seen. Also, mention any suggestions for what you think people could do to make the world a better place.
