Sometimes it seems that there is a Big Plan for the way things work out in our world. For an example, we will share the story of an anonymous contributor to the Build a School project.
It began with an email from a woman who asked not to be identified. She wrote in requesting some more information about the Build a School project. She wanted to make a contribution, but wanted to remain anonymous. She said that long ago, someone had helped her and with her contribution to the project, she had "...begun to repay a kindness given to me in my time of great need." Soon an envelope from this woman arrived at our office with a very large (and anonymous) donation:
Now many of you may remember that when Jackie was a child, he was very poor. Upon receiving help from someone, he asked how he could pay this person back. He was told to return the kindness someday; pass it on by helping someone else in need. Jackie has done just that, and it seems that so has our anonymous donor. But the story doesn't end there.
As you can see there is a photo of a black and brown dog on the donation drawing above. We found out more about this dog and want to share it with you for a few reasons. First, this is a very special dog. And second, we were struck by all the similarities between the story we heard and things we know about Jackie.
As it turns out, the little dog in the photo above is now a big dog; a dog named Lollipop. Three years ago, he was "thrown away, like garbage" and was rescued by his owner and trained as a service dog. Here is what she told us about Lollipop:
After hearing Lollipop's story, we were sure that it was meant to be told because of the many coincidences we noticed:
Well, even if you don't believe in a Big Plan or Destiny, it's still a great story and it was a remarkably generous donation from Lollipop's owner. We thank her for the donation and for sharing the story of her remarkable Dragon Dogs.
