Cash for Kindness: Helping a Single Mother

Being a mother,  I know how important it is to find a good daycare, a place where your children feel as loved away from home as they would at home.

In tonight's cash for kindness, we meet a woman who told us how crucial that decision was for her, because her job depended on it.

For a child, a daycare is a happy place but for a parent it's a place where they can feel their children are safe.   So when, Jacquetta Beeman sent me an e-mail about Lula Golsby, the director of Wonderland Academy in Montgomery, we knew her story was from the heart.

"She's always been there very supportive of us"

Recently, Jaquetta had a shift change at work which meant she could no longer pick up her two children before the center closed.   It left the single mother in a panic. That's where Ms. Golsby came in.

"Ms. Golsby has done her best to bring the kids to me.   We'll meet somewhere or if I get off before they leave she'll come and bring them home and that lets me know she really cares and she's really concerned about the kids.  "

"What would you have done if she wasn't able to do that?"

"I don't know, I would have had to swap daycare's or find other arrangements but thank God this worked out for me."

We gave Jaquetta 120 dollars to pass along to a woman who's made her life less stressful.

"I nominated you for cash for kindness, you've always been there whenever we've needed you.  You've always showed support for us and I want you to know you are appreciated and I do thank you so much for everything you do for us.  Thank you so much that means so much to me."

"When Jaquetta said she had a shift change and she needed to the kids to stay a little longer, what did you say?"

"I always say yes or we can work it out or just call me if you need me and we always manage to work it out with no problem."

and in this case it's one less problem for this mother to worry about.

If you'd like to nominate someone for Cash for Kindness send Valorie Lawson an email to vlawson@wsfa.com.  Put Cash for Kindness in the subject line."
