Aloha Construction president would want to see the spirit of “random acts of kindness” spread throughout the Lake Zurich area, according to the foundation’s spokesperson.
Perhaps the launching of the foundation is the clearest indication of the founder’s passion for sharing with those in need.
During the event on Aug. 14, Aloha Construction offered four sisters the exciting opportunity to enter Learning Express Toys in Lake Zurich and pick all the toys they fancied. Each of the girls had one and a half minutes to grab as many toys as they could.
The foundation had requested two local organizations to select a deserving family for the shopping spree.
The Store Owner Speaks
The store-owner, Rick Derr, thanked the foundation and the girls for shopping there and for “providing us with a glimpse of giving.” The lucky kids ended up with shopping worth 7,000 dollars, Derr said.
The foundation’s generosity inspired the store-owner who chose to contribute by offering a 40 percent discount on the girls’ shopping. He said the event was special and felt honored the foundation had chosen his store.
More Giving in the Future
The foundation linked to Aloha Construction has more giving to do in the future. The giving targets children in need, and hopefully, the spirit of “random acts of kindness” will inspire kids in the area to develop a giving mentality.
Through these charitable acts, the foundation hopes to improve Lake County for the sake of future generations. In fact, the foundation intends to host a charity event every month.
Families in need can expect more shopping sprees, bowling and drive-in movie theatre tickets among other treats from Aloha Construction.
Wouldn’t the world become a much better place if everyone decided to share his or her abundance with the less fortunate?
