Acts of kindness are emerging after the deadly California fires when a stranger touched a woman who lost everything in the wildfires.
Aimee Child Gray recently lost her entire home in the deadly California wildfires. Her daughter was going to be two years of age, when the fires hit the area two months before Christmas.
Shortly after the fire, Aimee began searching on eBay to find the replacement of the mini muffin baking set she’d bought before the fire—a special Christmas gift she found at the local consignment sale for her daughter’s Christmas. She says, “I was so excited to find a replacement for the one we lost and in the comment box to the seller I wrote her a little note telling her how much it meant to me to have a replacement after everything we lost. Upon receiving the mini cupcake baking set from her, I opened up the shipping box and was shocked.”
Aimee says, “It was filled with tons of other stuff: piping bags, sprinkles, numerous cute muffin tin liners, a book with different cupcake recipes and ways to decorate them—AND a crisp $100 bill.” It also contained a a heartfelt letter expressing how sorry she was to hear about the California fires, and hoped her package would bring us joy.”
Aimee’s family has finally got a new house to move into after the fire and still smiles at the thought of what that ‘sweet and thoughtful lady’ did. She says, “I still get teary-eyed when I think about her generosity and thoughtfulness,” Aimee adds, “so many wonderful things happened to us after the fire with pure strangers showing how much they cared and what compassion truly means.”
