A very uplifting letter came in the mail the other day.Â The opening paragraph read as follows:
“Dear Mr. Gonzalez,
On behalf of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your generous donation of discounted foam floor tiles for Savannah’s wish…”Â
Savannah is a little girl who wanted a playhouse and it seems like our foam tiles were just the thing they needed to line the inside of a full size dollhouse for extra padding and protection.Â A very nice pink, purple, and flower patterned soft flooring now decorates the inside of her very own life-size dollhouse.Â We often get requests for donations and while we can not always accommodate, it’s really good to hear from any customerÂ following up with us to give us positive feedback.

For me, this instance was particularly touching because Darla, the program manager, was one of the most positive people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.Â Her absolute dedication to her job and all that it’s about make it pretty inspiring to be a part of it, even if it’sÂ just to provide a service or product.Â It’s people like her that can really make something so trivial as our play mats for kids, and apply it to give someone in need a little more strength, hope, and joy.Â An important reminder that even when you’re down and out, it’s good to know that there are people out there striving to make a big difference in an innocent little boy or girls life.
