I'd had my giving key necklace for about 7 months. It said FAITH on it. It meant so much to me because faith means everything to me and I didn't want to give it away to just anyone. I wore that necklace everyday.
I work at Victoria's Secret (in the Pink section) and I'm always helping people find what they need. One day, this mom needed help choosing something for her daughter. I was asking some simple questions so I could get a better idea of How to help. As I got to talking to her, she asked me about the necklace I was wearing. When I told her the meaning behind it and she saw it read FAITH, she looked right at me and said, "My family and I really need faith right now." Saddened, I asked why. She said that she trusted me and told me her 17 year old daughter had been in the hospital for a month now because she tried to kill herself because over a boy. I am so against suicide and it broke my heart. I tried to help the mother out and give her some advice because I've been through something similar. I told her what had helped me get through the pain, was my faith.
I knew then I wanted her daughter to have my necklace. She didn't want to take it from me, but I told her that it was what I wanted - to pass it on to her daughter. She seemed so happy and said that once her daughter was out of the hospital, she would bring her here to see me.
After a couple months pass, out of nowhere, the mom and her daughter came to see me. Her daughter Ashley gave me the biggest hug ever, started tearing up saying, "thank you so much, you don't understand how much this means to me." It made me so happy knowing I'd really helped someone with their struggles and I'm so blessed that she's okay and that they really took the time to come and see me. I will never forget her. Thank you so much to The Giving Keys for letting me meet someone I will never forget.
