I just bought two giving keys yesterday at Gladiola Girls in Lynchburg, Va. I work at a private school and this morning, I met with the mother of a little girl whose name corresponds with the message on one of The Giving Keys that I had just purchased. This mother was so relieved that her daughter would be attending our school which is faith-based and much like a family. Her relief since the first time I met her was so evident, and I couldn't stop myself from giving her one of the giving keys that was around my neck.
Later this afternoon, I met with a student who had done something very brave over the weekend. I am very proud of her, and again, I just happened to have a giving key around my neck with the words "STRENGTH," so I gave it to her.
I am now on my way back to Gladiola Girls to purchase more giving keys. I have a feeling this is going to become a habit - I wish I could buy wholesale :) while still buying local.
