❗ GIVEAWAY ❗

The Team from New Zealand Red Cross

Today at Yummy Sushi, Okara, Whangarei.

Thanks to the kind young man that paid for the lunch my granddaughter and I selected. We were surprised and delighted. Still smiling!
I wish you good karma and I will pay your kindness forward.
After the cashier told a surprised me that my card had declined I stood aside to check my bank balance online. Next the cashier called out that the man had paid for our selection. I rushed out to see him drive off in a blue station wagon.
Money in account - I had actually keyed in an incorrect PIN number.
Some weeks ago a lady in front of me at the supermarket checkout was trying to decide what to put back as she didn’t have enough money to cover her shop. I paid her $5 shortfall.
I believe in Karma and that what goes around comes around. This was mine.
I will continue to keep it going!

How does the community feel?

During our discussion it was said the youths hang around the CBD because there is not enough to do also, some committee member asked if the free WIFI could be turned off as co-chair I suggested that we should not punish the many for the actions of the few. Disabled people like free WIFI, because in some cases apps to help the disabled can be accessed via free Wi-Fi
