Carol is generous. She enjoyed being a crossing guard, but had to give it up because of her health. I hope that the liver transplant will allow her to get her life back!

What a generous giveaway! What struck me the most with Carole's story is that she is truly a giving person, as she threw herself in front of a car to save a kid! My prayers are with her!

Audrey said...

That fact that she had to give up her crossing guard duties touched me. I drive a school bus and know to that if I had to give it up I would really miss the kids.
I have a friend who had a liver transplant when she was 25 and she is now 46 and going strong. I hope everything works out for Carol too.

I want to Thank you all for doing what you are doing for my friend Carole. Carole has the biggest heart; I know first hand. My niece, who is not related to her by blood, has a terrible drug problem, and is mentally ill. Hardly anyone who is blood related wanted to help her, but Carole did. She went out of her way to give her rides, feed her, or just be a friend to her. she is a remarkable woman. This is why it is so difficult seeing this good woman suffering as she is.
Thank you again, and please, keep Carole in your prayers.
Linda

What an amazing woman! Carole once threw herself in front of a car to save a boy's life when she worked as a crossing guard.

There was never a time a child crossed her street who went without hats & gloves for she would go to stores & buy these herself
This was such a touching story of soeone who gave so much to others

Shelley said...

Carole sounds like a wonderful woman. One who has given of herself for so many years..always serving others. I know in my own life that is lacking....I can't help with $$ for her transplant, but I can offer up prayers on her behalf. God knows all she and her family are going through and His timing is perfect...He is in control.

sito50 said...

She sounds like a fantastic, giving person. That she would be injured by throwing herself in front of a car to protect a child is such a selfless act. I will crunch my budget and see what I can do to help. My prayers are with her and those who love her.

A prayer for Carole. I read her story and what seems like little things, those children will remember her kindness forever.

This is a wonderful cause! Carole lived according to the "Pay It Forward" principal so it is great to see that coming back at her so strongly!

Wow, I just read Carole's story. What a hero. It's so amazing when someone lives a life of giving to others. I was touched to read about all her time spent volunteering with so many different charitable organizations.

SUMMER said...

Reading carole's story I teared up. She seems like a very giving, caring woman. I wish she was able to be a crossing guard still as it seems like it was a passion for her. I hope the universe and karma come together to give her the help she needs.

islandgirl said...

I love hearing how she was such a caring person, going out of her way to make sure those kids were taken care of. Very inspiring!

She is valiant to save the boy in danger because she loves kids. I'm really sad to hear about the fact that she had to give up her job as a crossing guard because of her health problems. I hope she can get well as soon as possible and be able to resume her favourite job.

Carole sounds like a wonderful person in her helping others many times. I hope she gets her liver transplant!

Tracy Simmons said...

This is a wonderful thing to do. I was really touched by Carol's generosity toward the kids she helped cross safely, buying them hats and gloves if they needed them. She sounds like an amazing woman.

jessecreations said...

What a great giveaway to promote a great cause!

It struck me the most about her being a crossing guard. When I see the kids at my son's school who have to walk, and they're so little, I'm very grateful for the crossing guards!!

I am sorry to hear of her struggle, but was touched to hear about her buying gloves and hats for the kids she crossed going to school. Hopefully good karma will follow her for the small yet meaningful gestures she did earlier in life! Shamrocker99 at aol dot com
