On Tuesday april ,18 ,2017 I lost a cashiers check for 676 $ It was returned to me the same night to my doorstep by a man named Sergio, who I soon came to realize was living with his wife and children out of a motel near by . I was touched by his actions and how he initially refused to take any reward . Theres still A lot of Good people in the world and Sergio is a living example . Lets Help him get on his feet again ! Even the smallest act of caring has the potential to turn a life arround .

Because of you, this week The Juarez family moves into a home of their own.

A special thank you to my husband and family for being so supportive through this amazing and unexpected journey.

This support just continues to floor us.

Because of you, The Juarez family will be able to find an apartment. Have meals together. Put gas in their car. Begin to take steps back towards their life.

This week, because of this support, Sergio was able to retrieve the family dogs from the pound (two middle aged chihuahua's that have been his life long partners).

All though you can tell they've been through it, they were glued to his side with so much gratitude to be back with the family this week.

Please take a moment to watch this Thank You video from Sergio, my son and I- we hope this inspires you be kind to one another and remember that no act is too small!
From the Juarez Family, Thank you!

The Juarez family and I are completely blown away with the continuing support from all over the world.

So much gratitude to everyone making a difference in the lives of this family. It's such a testimony of how incredible people can be when they stand up for one another.

I wanted to share this one donation that came in all the way from Lebanon. Your kind words are so inspiring, Salah Halawi! Thank you for your support.

Our hope is that from this campaign you'll be inspired to reach out and take action for someone in your own life. The domino effect is real.

Is there a way to connect with them and ask if personal donations are accepted. I've been sharing your story at work and already had several people ask me about possible grocery, clothing and toy donations. I'm willing to help collect donations.

Well, luck is not for everybody, I guess, I am a 57 year-old man and back in 2012 I lost my job because of an injury, then my house and the last thing I could ever think, my wife was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2015, kidney failure etc, but thanks God she's still alive and struggling to survive, God bless this family.

My hope is that this fundraiser will continue and exceed all expectation. I will give when I'm paid again. There is something deeply touching about this story... perhaps, the very personal connection between two families, brought together by fate, at a time our country is in such a state of turmoil. I'm reminded by this story to help again the poverty-level families in need in the West Valley where I live -- and to redouble efforts as we can. Truly, this has tapped into universal awareness of what "humanity" means....and reminded us of the abundant power of unconditional love and respect. amen, ELT

People can donate to whatever cause they want to and its great that this person is so honest and returned this person's check. Back in the late 1960's,My grandfather found hundreds of dollars ( a lot in the 1960's) in an envelope and reported it to a country store in his small town that also had a post office in it and a pit stop for many in the small town and it belonged to a man with a pregnant wife and the grateful man tried to pay him some of the money he returned and my grandfather refused to be paid anything. He just wanted to be honest and return to this man, what belonged to him. I have a fb friend who is disabled and has bad health problems. She is in debt and struggling financially and even having difficulty to buy food and toilet paper lately. I am also struggling financially so I can only help her once in a while with small amounts. Why do people want to give so much to someone for just doing the right honest thing and this disabled fb friend has such difficulty to get help with basic necessities?
