6 of 7 Days POSITIVITY Challenge: A Little Token of Appreciation for the Man About Town | Henry-Gant
Its not everyday that you meet a person who is willing to lend a helping hand despite the time that you have known each other or the distance that separates the both of you. Here is a true story of how a man about town has changed and touched the lives of steemies like me. A proof that this community is indeed not only about blogging but it is also a helping community.
I started blogging in steemit last January 2018 and little did I know that joining this platform can have a big impact on my life. I met writers, traders, tech savvys, programmers, gamers, new friends, mentors, etc. but most of all, I was able to meet people who are advocates of kindness and generosity.
Last month, my mother told me that she visited an eye doctor and the doctor told her that her cataract is getting worse and if not treated immediately it may cost her eye sight. She got worried and of course she was also terrified of what could happen to her if she did not follow the doctor's advise so she decided to tell me about her cataract. At first I did not know what to do because I dont have enough cash to proceed with the surgery. Since I was already in steemit, I tried posting blogs and dedicated my earnings for my mom's surgery. Until one day, a good steemit friend @leeart told me about the idea of having a fund-raising thru @upfundme. From then on, I was able to raise funds. Help poured in from generous steemians including sir @henry-gant. He was so generous enough that he almost took care of everything that I needed for my mom's operation! And that my friends is just the beginning of my story. By the way, you can read about the successful operation of my mom on the ff links:

It was not only me whom Sir H.G. was able to help, but some members of the #SDFamily was able to receive help too. We couldnt contain all the happiness and gratitude that we feel for the "Man About Town" so here are some photos to express our heart-felt gratitude to Sir H.G.
Ms. Daisy is a good friend of Sir henry-gant for quite sometime now and she has also been grateful to him as well. In fact, she wrote this blog to thank Sir Henry-gant too. Here is the latest #upfundme link from Ms. @purpledaisy57 for his grandson, Rico.
This message is from the Magsipoc's sending their heartfelt gratitude to our dear friend H.G. c/o @jovema. She has also shared how thankful she is for receiving an ample amount of sbd for her mother-in-law's immunotherapy. You can read her fund-raising on this link.
This message is from @yanzel4lyf on behalf of her class in San Miguel Central School where she teaches grade 4 students. She is a noble teacher and wants the best for her pupils thus her fund-raisng is about fixing their classroom for the pupils to have a better place to study. You can dropby on her link here.
This message is from the beautiful family of @akoaypilipina sending their smiles from Italy to thank our dear friend H.G. They are planning to be back on the Philippines for a visit very soon. Given all the cost for their travel, she decided to help her husband raise funds and you can visit her fund-raising link here.
Now this is from me, thanks to you my mom can see clear again. I am continuing to raise funds for my mom because she will undergo another eye surgery for her right eye. You can follow me, @beany-inhinyero for updates. Here is my latest #upfundme post.
This is a photo of @sitiaishah's cute and bubbly daughter. Baby Siti got sick and she needed immediate attention luckily there were kind-hearted people who were willing to help anytime. Good news, her baby is now recovering see it here.
@henry-gant is indeed a man of his word. When he told me that he was going to help me raise funds for my mom, he sent help right away no questions asked. I am truly honored and humbled to repay his kindness hence, all the earnings of this post will be sent to Sir H.G. as our token of appreciation. Thank you our dear friend H.G. and as we say it in filipino, Maraming maraming salamat po! And as the man said, I am sharing my story, our stories, to show that this community is not only about writing or blogging but it can save lives, bring happiness, shape the future and most especially make a brighter future.
