People occasionally enter our lives, and it takes a long time for us to realize how much they mean to us.
Angela Nguyen was one of those people for a man named Lee Haase.
Over the years, Domino’s employee Angela has delivered hundreds of pizzas. Lee is one of a large number of her regular clients.
Lee would order pizza every Saturday, and Angela would consistently deliver it.
But one Saturday, the orders just ceased.
Because Angela was worried, she went to his residence to find out why.
Angela came and noticed the damage right away. A severe storm had ripped off most of Lee’s home’s roof.
Lee couldn’t afford to fix his house after the storm. And to make matters worse, at around that time, his son had also perished in a snowmobile accident.
Lee rented a modest trailer because he was broke and depressed.
Sarah, the daughter of Angela and a pizza delivery woman, discovered Lee’s residence. She described to her mother how bad things were for him.
Lee’s camper lacked electricity, heat, water, and a sewage exit.
Lee was on Angela’s mind while she spoke. She chose to act for him instead of feeling sorry for him.
“I believed that action was required. We can’t allow a person to live like this, says Angela.
One easy step set the whole affair in motion. Lee’s trailer now has a heater, thanks to Angela. It was the start of an easier life for him. Then, Angela launched a crowdsourcing effort. As more and more people learned about Lee’s tragic story, the funds flooded in.
The campaign earned $32,360 in just two months. It sufficed to purchase Lee a brand-new mobile home!
According to Angela, she would not have succeeded without the assistance and support of the neighborhood and many kind strangers.
“We all had fun doing this, everyone. Not all of this is for Lee. All of us benefited, adds Angela.
Angela entered Lee’s life at the perfect time and gave him what he needed most—a loving heart.
He will always be grateful to her for opening the door for Lee to reclaim his life.
Reading accounts like these give me hope in a world where tragedies like wars, natural catastrophes, and other atrocities are too often.
It just goes to demonstrate how much goodness we all possess. We must be aware of this and use our resources to assist those in need.
Angela is a fantastic illustration of how we may assist those less fortunate than us in breaking out of a vicious cycle.
Please spread the word about this post to encourage more people to assist those in need.
