There was a elderly lady who live pleasant grove in dallas tx who has a mental illness. One was social anxiety. A 10 year old little pass by the lady and always waive hi thru her window. The elderly lady never replied back. One day when she pass by her apt. She notice a note on the door. The little girl was curious and wanted to know what the letter say. It was an eviction notice. The 10 year little girl was not happy even though she had never ever spoken to the lady she felt like she should do something.
Now this lady girl also have problem too. Her mother was on drug and her dad was not in the picture. Basically she really didn’t have a safe environment. But the little girl thought that the elderly lady needed help and without the concern on her own she did.
She grab 2 jars and label it. One jar states pick up. This the money that she will find on the ground and the 2nd jar states collect. This is where she stand by the store and collect money from people. She never asked for bills always change. One lady was giving her a 2 dollar and she kindly ask if she can collect the change instead of bills. The lady was so shock that she dig at the bottom of her purse and gave her all her change. The worst part is coming home. She had to constantly hide the money since her mother was on drug. By the end if the week she to the Bank of America. And provided her 2 jars. The teller told her that it will need to be wrapped up before they can do it. The little girl explained what she was doing and one teller went out of way and counted the money for her. She had collected over $1,000. The little girl was so happy and excited. And to the elderly lady. She constantly knock on the door. I do not know why the elderly lady open the door but she did. The little girl gave her all the money. The lady was so excited and shameful. But the little girl did what she can do not to feel like that. It was enough pay for her and groceries. The little girl feel good inside so she kept on doing it. She help so homeless people to stay in the hotel. (I’m not sure if Hilton stole her idea or not) but it wasn’t for one night. They even got clothes and a job. The little girl was so pleased what she had done. The homeless made sure she got something to and paid it forward. This little girl was never ever got recognized. Fox4, NBC never called . The little girl didn’t care.
When she turned 12 years old she had passed away. Rumor circulated that she got killed, drive by or natural causes. No one knows the Truth the homeless/mental health people. They raised money for her funeral which it was beautiful. They stated that’s the way she would like it.
Some homeless/mental health patient wanted her to recognize they believe she deserve it. But no one believe because they were homeless and have mental issues.
As of today, there are still of her people she help and still tried to carry legacy.
I know if a little girl can do something as American we can two. We should also do what she did. She never complain and knowing she wasn’t living a right environment. What’s wrong with us?
