Have you visited AutismFreeZone yet? You haven’t?!? Boy are you really missing out! Why are you missing out? Because you can get free stuff? Nope. Well, you can get free stuff you might need, obviously; but, the reason you’re really missing out is because you can GIVE to others!
Last week I decided to put up a list of supplements I knew I would not be using (unopened and not expired OF COURSE). I figured I might get a taker or two, but didn’t get my hopes up because maybe some people wouldn’t want to risk getting supplements in this manner.
Well, let me tell you, I was wrong! I put up a list of about 10 supplements, and within two days I had six people requesting 7 of the supplements. Each person requesting the supplement offered to pay the shipping costs, which was nice. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that they wouldn’t get the full experience of a FREE zone if they had to pay, so I sent them out and covered the cost.
I think I spent thirteen bucks at the post office, a worthy price for the feeling I had when I dumped the packages on the counter and realized I was helping that many families. I know it’s not helping in a big way, but it’s helping in the only way I can help right now.
I have felt so good for the last few days and I really think it is because of the giving spirit I have bubbling inside me!
This weekend I’m going to try to put up some ABA goodies, add a few more supplements, and some other things I’m hoping someone might find useful or downright need desperately. The giving spirit is infectious, I hope you catch it!
Royce and Randy, thank you! Thank you for AutismFreeZone, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to help other families.
