The kindness of others

Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for a kindness. - Seneca, Roman philosopher and statesmen
This past week, p:ear has been the recipient of some kind gestures this week. Executive Director Beth Burns took a morning trip out Beaverton to receive a $5,000 grant from Safeway employees on behalf of p:ear. Store Manager Dave Dominick and a group of Safeway employees presented the (giant) check to Beth. You can tell she's pretty excited. Our other gift was a bit quieter and a surprise; we received a card in mail with the following text:
Dear p:ear -
I found this cash while I was walking my dog. I know you will use to help kids in need.
Thanks for all you do!
- A fan
Enclosed were two $50 bills. To the Ellsworth Kelly fan - your quiet and and kind gesture is inspiring. Thank you so very much. With gratitude, the p:ear staff
