Heather got a chance to live out the joy of generosity by giving everyone at the 425 Magazine Women to Watch event $20 to give away. This site highlights the stories of those who gave and experienced joy in doing so!

 

In December of 2017, Heather’s friend Larry began a Kindness Campaign in honor of the passing of his mom in July. Because of the kindness shown by his mom, he sent out a letter containing $20 and asked the recipients to find a way to help another with the bill provided. Stories marked “In honor of Larry’s Mom” show some of the wonderful results of his campaign.

$20 to Give Away

 

Here is how “Natalie” gave her $20:

Good morning Heather,

My name is Natalie. My husband and I went to the Women To Watch and want to share how we gave it away.

I saw Julianna in down town Bellevue holding a sign. She was hoping for a little help to make rent because her hours were cut and she won’t be able to make it up in time. I stood and chatted with her for a while and then I remembered that the company I work for is hiring. I grabbed her number and I will talk with my boss tomorrow. Hopefully it will lead to her getting a great full-time job, but either way both of our days are brightened.

Thank you so much for the challenge and opportunity. It was so much fun! You inspired me and I have decided to keep a $20 in my wallet for similar chances in the future.

My heart is truly filled with joy!

With love and appreciation ~ Natalie
