Cash for Kindness: A Mission of Service

Retirement age means taking it easy.  But, for one man it means continuing his mission of service which can get costly when your living on a budget.   Tonight, we decided to help out one of his many causes with a little cash for kindness.

 COPE is a non profit organization that helps young mothers prepare for the future and Knute Johnson wants to make sure they have everything thy need which often means digging into his own pockets. 

"I think he probably paid for the roof here when he fixed it. He does cleaning, runs errands, does out banking he does everything for COPE. "

Pat Thornton told us Johnson is the board president of COPE and it's one of many organizations dear to his heart.

"He values children very highly and has proven that with a history of helping boy scouts, soccer leagues school board president of an elementary school for seven years.  He was school board president at a high school for several years. He's always helping everybody."

So, we're here to help Pat Thornton be there for Knute Johnson by passing on one-hundred and twenty dollars. 

I asked him, "What do you think about her nominating you or recognizing your service because obviously you do a lot and you've been doing it for many, many years?"

"I'm terribly embarrassed by it.  I really.  I had so many blessings that I try to give back a little bit of the blessings I've been given and don't think it's a big deal."  But,  it is a big deal to others, who depend on his type of kindness.

If you'd like to nominate someone for cash for kindness send me an e-mail to vlawson@wsfa.com.  Don't forget to put cash for kindness in the subject line.@
