Paying it Forward

mitzvahs

Today’s mitzvah:

Last summer, my husband and I bid on a package at our children’s camp auction. We received many lovely items in the package. One of the items was 8¬† tickets to a local puppet theatre we have gone to for many years. When I finally contacted the theatre this week to retrieve the tickets I realized we have seen two out of the three shows they are doing this year. I asked if I could gift some of our tickets back to them. They suggested we give them to someone we choose. My daughter suggested a family that we know with younger kids and I thought it was a perfect idea. I called them and they were delighted to receive the gift. What a wonderful win win for the theatre, the other family and us!
