I'd like to thank Guy Betsy for (again) graciously providing me with an ETA for my upcoming visit to Australia.
FlyerTalk has given me so much, so in exchange for the free ETA generously provided to me by Guy Betsy, I am offering (via Coupon Connection) a free international upgrade on UA for a long-time FTer (subject to some conditions, such as positive upgrade space).
Thanks for stepping up to the plate and taking care of my visa. I had asked for chewy3's help a couple of weeks ago. Had not heard anything from him and followed up with both pm and email with no response.
As in the past I am paying forward to the Childrens Hospital down in Galveston, Texas. It's run by the Shriners and just about 100% of all contributions go toward the care of the children.
Thank you for providing this service. In appreciation, I have donated bedding to a local homeless shelter and Mrs. Postnobills has made a contribution to a charity providing therapy services to abused children in Los Angeles.
Thank you for all your stories and donations... but remember that its not about the money because we can just do that online these days and don't think about it ...
It costs less to make an effort than it is an actual donation..
There was a story once I read when a bus driver got out of the bus at a stop, and went in to buy some flowers by the street corner and gave it to the lone woman sitting alone.. and wished her "Happy Mother's Day" ! That brought tears to my eyes...
I'm not saying that everyone should do this.. some are shy, fine. But it takes just a little, that goes very far.
Just saying "Thank you, have a nice day" and meaning it goes just as far.. if you say it at least once every day to someone you don't know.
But thank you for donating your time, and heart .. that will make a difference in the world we live in today.. and tomorrow.
Thank you for offering to process the Visa request for myself and my husband. I will be donating toiletries to the "First Stop" a local day room for the homeless where they can also take showers. Relative to your posting today, I know what you mean about small kindnesses - some cost nothing. Recently I commented to a lady walking into a store about how "put together and neat" she looked. The lady said that I had made her day as she had been very sick recently and this was her first day out. It certainly made me feel good!
A big thank you to Guy Betsy for his assistance with getting my visa sorted out. He responded to my e-mail almost instantaneously. For my pay-it-forward, I am going to be donating a Saturday to help with a party to help at risk youth at a elementary school.
Also donating the application fee instead to the Wounder Warriors project.
