Hi there,
I wanted to share this story as it was quite heartwarming and reflects both the spirit of our neighbourhood but also a genuine kindness story.
Earlier this spring during the community garage sale, our son rode/pushed home this bike that was in need of some tlc. Rusty and knowing it had seen better days, I shook my head and laughed at his excitement.
About a month ago, I tried to toss it out to the curb for garbage pickup. Last week while eating dinner, our doorbell rang....our son answered the door to find no one around, only his "old" bike on our doorstep that had been repainted and fixed up! Jacob called out to us to come quickly and see what he had found, the look on his face was priceless.
Now how's that for an amazing neighbourhood?! Thank you very much to the mystery Good Samaritan (who we still don’t know) who has completely made my boys year! Your kindness has truly made a difference. 
Jody, Mark & Jacob
