This Act of Kindness Opened Hearts and Sparked Joy!

A couple in Orlando found a way to spread joy in their community with a door of kindness. 

I’s our favorite time of the week when we pause to recognize good from around the world and our backyards. We find Carolina kindness in Murrells Inlet, Florence and Orlando, Florida.

Diver finds couple’s engagement ring – Murrells Inlet, SC

Donnie Constransitch has gone and saved the day again!  He was down at the dock helping someone find their cell phone when he met a couple who was there looking for their engagement ring! The excitement of getting engaged caused a drop into the water. The area is shallow and covered with oyster beds.   So Donnie went to get more air in his tank. A friend let him borrow the air he needed so he could quickly get back out there! By this time it was close to midnight. Donnie searched but the water was getting too low.  He returned the next day, and was able to find it!  And all out of goodness.  Donnie doesn’t charge for his services. he operates solely on tips.   You can find more of his stories on his Facebook, Water Dingo Diving!

Ayden’s Angels and the House of House – Florence, SC

Remember the Florence student Ayden Atkinson we featured a few months ago who was raising money to help build a tiny home for the homeless with the House of Hope?  It was a big goal of $20,000!  He met his goal!   Since being on our show others have joined in to help him. including the Community Broadcasters in Florence who held a gold tournament to help him raise the money it takes for one of the many tiny homes in the House of Hope village in Florence.  The project is a community of homes built to shelter those would otherwise be homeless.  Homes are slated to be ready for move-in by the end of the year.   Ayden and the Executive Director for the House of Hope Bryan Braddock are coming on the show next week!

Kindness opens doors – Orlando, FL

Here is another example.  A couple in Orlando found a way to spread joy in their community with a door of kindness.  When Jessa and Tim moved into their new apartment they set up a table with blank post-its and pens for residents to write supportive and positive messages.   As the days went by the door became filled with notes of positivity.  One of the residents was inspired to then create pens of kindness that she uses at the restaurant where she waitresses.
