The matter of ‘positive posts’ to balance the blogs was mentioned at this afternoon’s panel discussion. Apparently no one noticed this very special post named A Mentors Magic.
Or if it was noticed, no one felt compelled to comment. I’m posting it again with an update on Maurice and the Gale football team. Last Sunday it was drizzly and cold but Maurice was out checking the field before the game. I stopped to chat and learned he was getting costs to provide uniforms and padding for the kids. He said a couple of the parents had mentioned starting a fund, but he knows they can’t afford much, so he planned to make the initial purchase himself. Now, I doubt this venture will be inexpensive, do you? So I said I’d check around and see about funding. Joe Moore committed to personally contribute once Maurice had an estimate. I will too, will any of you?
If one young man can give his time, energy and love to the kids in his neighborhood, then here’s your ‘positive story’ and here’s your chance to give back too. If you can’t afford a donation to the uniform fund, you might stop and cheer for the team. You never know who may be a future pro football star thanks to Maurice.
