MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Most people who do good deeds don't seek any recognition but, one woman who makes it her mission to help young people found herself with a 120 dollars in cold hard cash.  It's part of something we call "Cash for Kindness."

Sometimes it's considered a thankless job. But, ever morning Naomi Judkins gets an early start in order help students at Martin Luther King elementary get to school safely.

 Juwina Pickett has known Ms. Judkins for more than 30 years and she nominated her for Cash for Kindness. "When she told me she was a school crossing guard I thought she was joking so I laughed about it and to prove it was true she showed me a picture"

They say a picture is worth a thousand words but when you learn how involved and active Ms. Judkins is at the age of 80 it will leave you speechless.    Juwina told us, she was impressed when Ms. Judkins showed her pictures of her in her crossing guard uniform. " I was very impressed and she does so many things in the community and with that added to it, I thought she would make a good candidate for this."

Juwina is right. We here at WSFA 12 News love stories like this, so when Juwina told us about her friend's kindness we thought it worthy of 120 bucks.

If you know someone you'd like to nominate for "Cash for Kindness" send me an e-mail to vlawson@wsfa.com and don't forget to put "Cash for Kindness" in the subject line.
