    After reading buliSBI's thread about the couple who donated $12,000 worth of toys in honor of their son ( http://www.thebreakroom.org/showthr...-000-in-toys-to-honor-son?p=100626#post100626 ) I realized that this time of year we could use some positive news.

    Maybe we could all share a post or two of stories that made the room a bit dusty.

    This is one that killed me for a number of reasons. I was doing all right until they got to the part where the kid tells the judge that she isn't afraid because her friends are a lot scarier than the bad guy.

    Around two to three years ago, I was battling horrible depression and was need in some cheap therapy for myself. To occupy my time and make both myself and others feel better, I made up design in Photoshop of a picture of clouds and a bright blue sky with the words "Everything is going to be alright." printed on it and an email address on the back, went downtown in my city, and posted them random places using non-damaging adhesive (bus stops, subway stations, buildings, parking meters, etc). Did this for a few months and got around six or seven responses out of maybe 200 posted.

    One of the responses was heartbreaking:

    About a year later I got an out-of-the-blue email from someone else:

    What I read after still makes me sob to this day:

    Haven't done it in a long time. I think I should.

    A TM who left after a divorce was having problems with her old laptop & one of the electronics guys had patched it numerous times.
    It was finally deemed unfixable so several TMs went in together & got her a new one (using assorted discounts, of course).

    You know...

    I complain about my job and the people I work with. The problem is I have a heart and I thought with it this time last year. I gave a team member, who has four kids and recently seperated from her husband, a 25 gift card.

    Most wouldn't do that because they think she's a B****. She can be. But she's nice when she wants to be.

    daninnj, would you be willing to share the image of the postcard? I leave anonymous love letters around my town and have for a long time. I don't put a return address or email address on them but now and then I hear about someone finding one and the difference it made for them. It truly makes my day. I'd love to see your postcard!

    Love it! Thank you so much. Would you mind if I copy your idea for my own area? And I would love to see the actual image if you have it.
