Pennies For A Loving Cause June 2, 2012 – Posted by Mufkins
I am collecting pennies at work for a co-worker. He doesn’t know I’m doing this.

One of his twin grand-daughters was diagnosed with cancer and had surgery to remove a kidney as well as the tumor. She is only 11 months old!

I was in our local store buying some items and the clerk asked me if I had the right change. I said no and explained that I have been putting my change in a jar for a co-worker. I explained why and the manger, who was standing nearby, turned around and said, "What did you say?"

I explained the story again and he reached into his pocket. He took out all the change he had and generously offered it to me to put in my jar.

It turned out that he had also gone through the cancer experience. I left that store renewed by this proof that there are still kind people in our world. How wonderful that a complete stranger can, and will, reach out to help someone they have never even met!
