The True Spirit of Christmas

Don’t worry – the true spirit of Christmas lives on!!  We had a huge apartment complex fire here in Minnesota a few days ago.  Thank God that not one person was even injured!  Even all their pets survived!  The thing is, though, every apartment burned down.  Everyone living there was now homeless.  it being the Christmas season,  all their Christmas trees and presents were also burned.  They only had the clothing on their backs.

The Red Cross and the Salvation Army, (my personsl favorite), pitched in and gave them all clothing and shelter.

Here’s the best part, in three flavors:

  1. They had so many donations of toys, clothing in two days, etc., the apartment dwellers asked people to stop the donations ’cause they didn’t know what to do with them!
  2. An anonymous donor gave One Million dollars to the displaced dwellers –  each of the renters got a check yesterday or today for over &17,000.
  3. This is also unbelievable – the building owners gave them all their December rent and their their cleaning deposit.  This is one evil owner who accepted their responsibility and stepped up to the plate – without being asked.

Maybe this would have happened anyway.  but I think that this is the true spirit of Christmas.

    A follow up on the True Spirit of Christmas.

    As of last night, the donations to the truly homeless people of the apartment complex, total a whopping $1,179,000, mostly from anonymous donors. The largest was $1 Million and the second largest was $50,000. The amount of clothing, toys, toiletries, food is unbelievable. A local church, Mercy Lutheran, houses all this stuff in two large meeting rooms.

    Not only does THE Christmas spirit live on,this is what happens when AMERICANS help AMERICANS. And guess what, NOT ONE DOLLAR came from any part of the government.
