A Radio for Dancing and Singing August 28, 2012 – Posted by mightym
I was conducting an auction for a non-profit to help our senior citizens in need. There was an old battery-operated radio, never used, and an older woman came up with her friend.

She was digging in her handbag to find 50 cents to buy a ticket and her friend asked what she would do with the radio if she won it. I was eavesdropping because I was also curious. She smiled and said, "I would sing and dance in my apartment."

That really touched my heart, so when she left I found out her name and surprised her anonymously with gift cards so she could buy a radio and not have to worry about batteries. I have never forgotten that. We take so many little things for granted! And we can all make a difference!
