Daughter Honors Her Mom With a ‘Lovin Moment’
So this year, we are asking you to share with us your Little 'Lovin Moments. Maybe it's a random act of kindness or paying it forward. We've been getting awesome and amazing stories from the Southern Tier.
We want to thank Ann Marie Bogart for sharing this with us and we think it's worth sharing with everyone.
"Starting in 2012, my sister, Kimberly Bogart, had been organizing an annual Random Acts of Kindness day in honor of our mother, Barbara Bogart, who passed away on May 29, 2011 from cancer.
She gets many friends and family members to join her in going around the triple cities to spread kindness with random acts. She usually buys most of the items herself for the event.
We have been to such places as Project Paw to donate bleach and cat food/treats, Good Shephard Fairview Home to donate potted plants to brighten the days of the patients, Arnold Park to donate sand toys and bubbles, Dunkin Donuts to give out gift cards.
Regal Theatre to give out gift cards and candy, Spot diner to surprise one lucky table with $20 towards their dinner, laundromats leaving rolls of quarters, laundry detergent and laundry baskets, and Wilson/Lourdes Hospitals to donate coloring books, markers, and small toys to the children's floors.
We also go to the dollar store and place dollars sporadically around for people to find. All of these places are related to what my mother loved. My sister organized this event for three years at the end of May, but this year she didn't do it and when I asked her why, she said she was unable to do it then because she couldn't afford it.
She said she may try to do it in a couple of months. I hope to help buy some of the items. My sister is one of the kindest, most giving people I have ever met. This is just one of the things that she does to help others."
WOW. We hear about all the garbage that is out there so we think it's fantastic when we hear the good that is in people. Thanks again Ann Marie.
By the way, I think I've seen your sister's generosity at the Dollar Store. I saw this dollar bill in a spot that I knew was placed there. I knew that someone would come along that would need the dollar more then me. However because of Kimberly, I put a dollar in another spot.
I put my dollar in a random spot but next time, like for your mom, I'll put it in a spot that my mom (or dad) would like.
If you know the Bogart family and would like to help out, I'm sure they would love to hear from you. God bless you all...I can tell that he has.
So what is your Little Lovin' Moment? We'd love to hear your story as well. As an extra bonus, you could end up with a $50 McDonald's gift card. Enter below.
