Great Story That Didn't Make The News – But SHOULD Have

In case you didn't get a chance to read the story from the link in my last blog, I'd like to introduce you to a little girl that should have received some recognition for sharing her kind spirit.

Raena's elementary school held a book fair where Raena was given several dollars from her mom and grandma to spend at the fair. Her grandfather gave her an additional $20 for her straight-A report card. 

On the day of the book fair, Raena's mom asked her what books she bought.


The reason was because Raena saw some other children who couldn't afford to purchase any books, so Raena bought books for them.

Proud of her little Bananaface (her nickname), Mom asked Raena what she did with the rest of her money.

Raena's response: "I gave the rest to the Humane Society."

The family is not wealthy. Raena's mom is a single parent who works two jobs to support her two children. Fortunately, this special mom has phenomenal friends, one of whom is considered an aunt to those two precious kids. I know, because I'm that friend's mommy.

But before you start thinking I'm prejudiced because I know all of the people involved in this little story, I'd like to clear up something right now – even if I didn't know little Bananaface, I would feel as proud.
