    Here's a truly heart-warming story about the bond formed between a
    little
    girl and some construction workers that makes you believe that we CAN
    make a
    difference when we give a child the gift of our time...

    A young family moved into a house, next door to a vacant lot. One day a
    construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot.
    The
    young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the
    activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the
    workers. eventually the construction crew, all of them
    gems-in-the-rough,
    more or less adopted her as a kind of project mascot. They chatted with
    her,
    let her sit with them
    while they had coffee and lunch breaks, and gave her little jobs to do
    here
    and there to make her feel important. At the end of the first week they
    even
    presented her with a pay envelope containing a couple of dollars. The
    little
    girl took this home to her mother who said all the appropriate words of
    admiration and suggested that they take the two dollar "pay" she had
    received to the bank the next day to start a savings account.

    When they got to the bank, the teller was equally impressed and asked
    the
    little girl how she had come by her very own paycheque at such a young
    age.
    The little girl proudly replied, "I worked last week with the crew
    building
    the house next door to us." My goodness gracious," said the teller, "and
    will you be working on the house again this week, too?"

    The little girl replied, "I will if those assholes at Home Depot ever
    deliver the fucking sheet rock"...

    Kind of brings a tear to the eye.
