CONTINUE GOOD STORIES

These are stories of how you (and others in the CG Community) have spread kindness in the lives of those around you.

LOVE STICKS

Brittany got the welcome home candle which encourages you to leave a treat for your mailman. So, she had her daughter and her friend run out to give gum to the delivery person.

RABBIT RESCUE

A girl in our LA community, Nadia, wanted to help during the California wildfires. One of her biggest passions in life are animals so she signed up to adopt and rescue bunnies that were endangered in the wildfires. She ended up adopting 5 bunnies!

EYES TO SEE

Our friend Lynn wanted to #continuegood and had her eyes open to someone in need. She was at Savers and noticed a mom having a conversation with her children. The kids wanted a toy but the mom was unable to pay for it. Lynn felt the excuses flood her mind; “what if she thinks I’m rude” “is it crossing the line?” but chose to ignore them and walked up to the woman and said “I know it’s hard not having the money when they’re asking for things. Here’s a little cash.” The mom accepted with tears in her eyes.

NOTICE THOSE AROUND YOU

Timia and her friends in Colorado were sitting at a restaurant and kept catching the eye of a mom and her daughter. The friend group decided they wanted to pay for the mom and daughter’s meal to bless them. What was neat was the chain reaction. The group’s waiter had a terrible day and seeing this act of kindness made him almost tear up because all day people were being rude. It restored his faith in humanity along with made the mom and daughter’s night.

DRIVE THRU LOVE

Bonny was going through the Wendy’s drive-through for a frosty after a long day at the dentist. She noticed 2 men in a truck in line behind her and thought “let’s gift them some frosty’s too.” So she asked the employee to add on 2 frosty’s to her bill and blessed them. I’m sure it sweetened their day!

A GOOD LAUGH WITH A GOOD MAN.

A customer was going to a coffee shop and saw a homeless man outside. So she brought the man an iced coffee and a pumpkin scone. He was quite the comedian and they had a great conversation about life and their beliefs.

KINDNESS IN A GAS STATION

A male community member was behind a man at Quik-Trip who couldn’t pay for his drink. So this customer followed the man outside and gave him a few dollars to pay for his drink.

UNEXPECTED HELP

It’s so fun to shock people with kindness. Mark saw our customer struggling to carry groceries to their car and was headed into the grocery store. He took time out of his day to ask if she needed help. Which she started to refuse but he insisted. He helped her carry her groceries to her car. Simple for him, but so lasting for her!

MR. POST MAN

Our sweet community member has lived in the same neighborhood for quite some time. She has been able to familiarize with her post man. So she decided to #continuegood by baking cookies and leaving cookies + a kind note out with her mail. It’s a cold time to be a mailman so I’m sure the sweet warmed his heart amidst the cold!

VALENTINE’S AT THE HOSPITAL

Continue Good had a Valentine’s popup shop and included crafts for kids and adults to make a Valentine’s card. Continue Good brought the extra cards to a local hospital along with some treats to hand out to patients.

THERE’S NO LOVE IN TENNIS

Truth of myth?! Read this story to decide for yourself. Mollie played D1 college tennis and was injured for the second half of her career. She finally had to call it quits as she knew she wasn’t improving. Her coach brought her in the next day and offered for her to keep her scholarship and stay on as a team manager/cheerleader the rest of her Senior year. This extreme kindness still makes her tear up.

DONUTS

Josh works for a food and beverage company. They had leftover delicious donuts. He decided to take this large amount of donuts and make some people’s nights. He gifted them to his local nursing home. He does this regularly, it’s such a treat!

ROOF RESCUE

We look up to this customer Ryan for his dedication to helping communities in need & volunteering with a disaster relief organization. But for this story Ryan came to aid when a man was stuck on his apartment complex’s roof. He helped him off the roof to safety & we are so thankful for his spontaneous continue good outreach!

ROOM-MATES ROCK, RIGHT?

Courtney thought to do something kind for her roommate. Look at this picture explaining what she did! So simple but also makes SUCH a difference in someone’s week 💕

ACT ON YOUR GUT FEELINGS

It’s a delight to share how my grandmother Donna #continuedgood when an opportunity presented itself that ended up preventing a bad accident! She was helping at her church’s welcome desk & an elderly man who was having some trouble walking asked her where the coffee was. She pointed him in the right direction but as he was walking away she had a gut feeling she should go walk him over to the ☕️ station. So Donna took the man’s arm & a couple seconds later he started falling to the floor. She was able to brace his fall. The man was dazed & ended up going to the hospital but luckily Donna #continuedgood & stepped up to help him so he didn’t have a terrible fall.

GROCERY STORE LOVE

It’s so fun to shock people with kindness. Mark saw our customer struggling to carry groceries to their car and was headed into the grocery store. He took time out of his day to ask if she needed help. Which she started to refuse but he insisted. He helped her carry her groceries to her car. Simple for him, but so lasting for her!

SPREADING HOLIDAY CHEER

This week we are sharing the story of our dear friend Carrie. I personally know Carrie and have always thought her name is so fitting because she is one of the most caring people I know. Anyways, caring Carrie works at a school and knew that some of the kids at the school won’t be getting gifts this Christmas. So she went to Walmart & found some games, crafts and blankets to hopefully help them have a warmer & cheerier Holiday. This is what makes our hearts soar, hearing how customers #continuedgood in their own spheres of influence.

PICK UP A PENNY, OR CARD?

Our community member Mahli sat down at a Starbuck’s on a Sunday and wrote some letters. She put some time into the artwork on the front and filled them with encouraging and uplifting words for a stranger. She bought a few cake pops with money from the CG fund and then left a cake pop and a letter on a bench, near a parking space, and a few other random spots. She prayed over who would receive them and that it would be what they needed that day.

MORNING GLORY

We are so proud of our customer Anne for how she loves on the homeless community. She volunteers for a Kansas City based ministry called Morning Glory. Anne helps make breakfast, serve and interact with the homeless, and clean up afterwards. THIS is what getting out of your comfort zone means. Thank you to our sweet & social customer Anne!

CRISIS AND A CARE PACKAGE

A close church small group had 4 pregnancies announced within a few months. It was an exciting time. Around everyone entering their second trimester, one of the couples had a miscarriage. The girls in the small group rallied around the devastated friend in prayer and put together a care package of all her favorite things and caring notes. They brought dinners and gave flowers, they gifted the couple with delivered pizza. The ache didn’t go away but the community wrapping their arms around the couple brought joy and relief.

“YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL.”

One high schooler decides to tell her school mates they are beautiful people and we see their reactions. Our favorite is the girl who laughs and takes a bite of a sandwich.

During the normal Aldi grocery run our customer Chip was checking out behind this elderly woman who was struggling to get around. Somehow Chip’s groceries got mixed in with hers but before he could say anything the lady swiped her card & said “It’s on me. My pleasure.” & walked away.

DONATING MINI COMFORT CANDLES TO HEALTH CARE HEROES DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS.

Pam Burton, local boutique owner, stepped up and donated to Continue Good so we could hand-make a ton of mini Comfort candles for first responders at the hospitals. Continue Good decided to match her donation and from there sweet customers and people started to contribute to the cause. Tracy Cooper bagged up the candles with thank you notes. We were able to donate 275+ candles to health care heroes in the month of April 2020!

READING BUDDIES FOR LIFE!

Makes us smile that our community member Tracy #continuedgood by signing up to read books and hangout with a reading buddy at an inner city school each week. Tracy says it’s one of the biggest highlights of her week. She watches her grandson each week and on occasion, her grandson gets to join the fun. Tracy’s reading buddy shown in the picture is a big fan of her grandson Cooper 🙂

LET’S CONTINUE MAKING A DIFFERENCE.
