I am Maddie's Nana and our family is so very proud of her and her big heart. She was taught an early lesson about giving for those in need....when she was 3 we were at Wal Mart and she cried for a candy cane yard decoration. When my daughter, her mom, told her no Maddie made the comment that she never got anything. I watched as my daughter took her by her little hand and marched her up to the Angel Tree and told her about those kids that were represented there. Ever since then Maddie makes sure that she sponsers an angel and last yr. was a tough yr. for my daughter and money was tight so we told her she could only buy for 1 angel insted of the 3 or 4 that she usually does. When they returned home she had 2 angels to buy for. My daughter said that she teared up after reading what the children had listed and told her that she just couldn't put the other one back and if she could just take them both that she would put a jar at my office, Keith Chiropractic, and "her" patients would help her. And, indeed they did. Her mom just said yesterday, "never, did I think that the seed that was planted in front of the Angel Tree would have sprouted and grown like this".
