Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers


Posted on August 14, 2019 by jilldennison


We’ve had more than our share of bad news in the past week or two, haven’t we?  It’s often easy to believe that the world is mostly evil, that kindness, compassion and caring have gone by the wayside.  But, as I find every week when I go in search of good people for my Wednesday morning feature, they are out there … we just have to shove aside all the bad people and open our eyes and our hearts, and we will find them.  Today, I have for you an assortment, but first … I thought this was in keeping with the theme …Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers Inspirational-quote


Caden Dixon is nine-years-old, and he really, really did not want to go to school that first day of fourth grade.  He was dreading it more than most kids do.  Why?  Well, you see, Caden’s dad was a police officer with the Hall County, Georgia, Sheriff’s Department and he was killed exactly one month before in the line of duty.  Caden’s dad always took him for the first day of school … but this year he wasn’t there and Caden couldn’t face it.  Enter a bunch of good cops …Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers Caden-1
Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers Caden-2
Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers Caden-3
Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers Caden-4On Wednesday morning, more than a dozen of his dad’s colleagues arrived at Enota Multiple Intelligences Academy in Gainesville and escorted Caden to class.  The deputies in Dixon’s Patrol Watch were a tight-knit group, according to spokesman Derreck Booth.
“Since the tragedy last month, members of the watch and other deputies, particularly Sgt. Hewell, have been actively involved with serving and comforting Dixon’s family.”


Last November, California experienced the most devastating wildfires in its history. The worst, known as the Camp Fire, killed 85 people and destroyed 14,000 homes, leaving over 50,000 people homeless.  Enter Woody Faircloth of Denver, Colorado …
Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers Woody-faircloth“There are people that lived lives like we do, that went to work every day, went to school and had very normal lives that now find themselves homeless with nowhere to turn, nowhere to live. I just couldn’t imagine being in that position. I had a hard time letting it go … I knew I wanted to do something to help.”
Faircloth browsed Craigslist in the areas affected by the fires and saw an enormous need for temporary housing for evacuees. So, he set up a GoFundMe page and invited people to donate so they could purchase and restore a used RV for a family.
Through social media, Faircloth eventually got connected with a family of six that was greatly in need. Just before Thanksgiving, Faircloth filled the RV with supplies and — along with his youngest daughter, 7-year-old Luna — embarked on the nearly 1,200-mile drive to California to deliver the vehicle.Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers Rv-e1565756539299That first donated RV led to another, and by December, Faircloth had more than 100 requests for RVs from afflicted families.  Witnessing how great the need was, Faircloth turned his idea into a nonprofit, RV4CampfireFamily.
“If we have a platform to help, we have to keep helping.”
Faircloth connects with RV owners interested in donating or selling their used RVs at a low cost. He refits the RVs himself and negotiates costs when he needs to enlist professional mechanics for heavy-duty repairs. Once the RV is ready to go, Faircloth organizes a way to transport it to the recipient.
The organization has thus far provided RV homes to 65 families.


Imagine … we as adults are so devastated by the recent mass shootings, it affects us in any number of ways, from sleeplessness to frustration & angst, to looking about every time we go out in public, wondering who might be thinking what.  So, imagine what it’s like for children who are just old enough to understand what happened, but not yet old enough to understand why.  One eleven-year-old, Ruben Martinez of El Paso, was among those who was having difficulty taking it all in.  According to his mother, Rosa Gandarilla …
“He was having some trouble dealing with what happened. I explained to him that we could not live in fear and that people in our community are caring and loving. I told him to try and think of something he could do to make El Paso a little better.”
And so, Ruben did just that! Good People Doing Good Things — Helpers Ruben-1-e1565754956842Ruben Martinez is challenging each person in El Paso to do 22 acts of kindness for others in honor of the 22 people who died that day.  Ruben has been passing out flyers and posting on social media to try and help the #ElPasoChallenge spread. He is also leading by example …
“Last night, he agreed to go out to do his first act of kindness. He chose to go deliver dinner to our first responders.”
The response on Twitter has been great …

  • Willow the RainFawn@DaDoofFloofbutt:  “I will join in. But instead of 22, I will have 34 acts of kindness-3 for the Garlic Festival shooting, 22 for El Paso, 9 for Dayton, Ohio”
  • Victoriaa@hippievicky:  “Today my niece, friend and I did the #ElPasoChallenge! It felt so good doing something nice for others! Each of the 22 notes had the name of a victim because we wanted these good deeds to be for them! #ElPasoStrong I encourage y’all to do this challenge!”

And there were many, many more.  It seems to me that the youth of this nation are our hope for the future, and right now I trust their good sense more than I do that of many adults!  People turn to churches for guidance in times of trouble … perhaps they would be better off to turn to young people!


I came across this short video on a friend’s blog, Nuggets of Gold, last night, and I think it fits in perfectly with the ‘good people’ theme.  See what you think …
