Teen secretly writes to stranger asking for help. Moms shocked when shows up at their house

http://shareably.net/teen-writes-letter-to-dealership-asking-for-help/?utm_content=inf_10_3000_2&utm_source=TSE&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=TSE&tse_id=INF_10934dd0104011e7af245d7f4020bc76

Sixteen-year-old Maiya James watched her mom, Miss Katherine, struggle every day to take care of her disabled sister, Mariah, and to make ends meet. Mariah suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy and is completely blind. In addition to her disabilities, Mariah recently had her spine fused. As a result, she requires round-the-clock attention and extensive medical care. So when the family van broke down, leaving Miss Katherine struggling to get Mariah to her frequent doctorís appointments, Maiya took matters into her own hands.

Maiya turned to Google to research car dealerships in her area. She stumbled across Daniís Auto. Having read that they frequently participate in community outreach programs, Maiya wrote to them asking for help. She got more than she bargained for.

Maiya simply wanted Daniís team to come to their home and take a look at Miss Katherineís van. She was hoping that they would be able to repair the old van and get it back on the road. Well, Daniís Auto had a different idea

On the day that Daniís Auto was supposed to be at their West Philadelphia home, they showed up with a little more than a tool bag and repairman.


It is worth following the link and getting the whole story. Dani's delivered them a new, customized van. This is one of those stories that reminds you that there really are a whole lot of really good, caring folks out there.
