There have been so many acts of kindness in the last couple of weeks since the flood, yet one came to some of those affected from Roseland Montessori in an unexpected way. A seven year old little girl named Madison Perkins showed up at the school with a basket full of handmade care packages for children and adults. This gift was not just remarkable because it came from such a young heart or because of the distance she traveled to deliver it. It was so touching because Madison used her own money that she had saved to be a cheerleader to purchase all the items. As she handed each one of the flood victims, she offered them the sweetest words of comfort. She touched everyone in the room, even bringing some to tears. There may be no way we can ever repay this sweet soul. In fact, we may never even see her again in our lifetime. However, we, at Roseland Montessori, promise you Madison that we WILL pay this forward. Thank you!
