Last month a terrible accident happened in a much loved little neighborhood of Seattle, Greenwood. A gas explosion leveled three local businesses in the middle of the night. Several years ago, I lived in Greenwood so, it's always had a special place in my heart. When I heard of the accident, I couldn't imagine what the owners of those businesses were going through. Losing everything... A few days later a group popped up on Facebook asking for volunteers to join together in a neighborhood clean-up. My heart kept telling me to volunteer in someway and I couldn't shake it. I reached out and asked if I could donate cupcakes to all the volunteers that day and they said, "Yes!"
It was such a neat experience to witness people coming together in the midst of a tragedy to encourage the local businesses. They cleaned debris, painted boarded up windows and planted new plants. I'm so glad I could be a part in a small 'sweet' way.
