In response to an article about our recently announced, “The Go-Giver Award” that John posted at his website, he received an amazingly heartwarming response:
What a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge another person. I’m so please you and Bob had this idea.
When the award went live I printed two awards, one for my sister Jane and one for my co-worker Anne.
Jane does anything and everything for anyone who needs her help. I owe her my life, and I continually look for ways to show my never-ending appreciation. Jane selflessly cared for me following a major surgery, while at the same time caring for my ailing parents in a different household. I gave her the award. She looked at it. Began to read it and then she looked at me and said, “I’m going to get a frame for this and hang this in my room.” I was pleased that I was able to give Jane something that truly touched her.
I also printed one for my co-worker Anne, and she has hers proudly displayed on the windowsill behind her desk.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to make others feel as special as they are.
Donna’s letter gave us a really great idea: we’d love for you to share with us the responses you’ve received from people to whom you’ve given this award. Or, if you’ve been given it by someone else, how did you feel?
Please write away in the comment section. We’d love to know. 🙂
A very touching letter, love that. 🙂 Thanks for sharing. The letter encourages me to give more.
