A compelling and inspiring story of generosity appeared in the Thursday
edition of the San Diego Union-Tribune. It was a profile of Gidget
Schultz, a woman who operates a program that provides books, Teddy
bears, school supplies and festive "unbirthday parties" to kids who
have been removed from abusive family situations and are temporarily
residing in shelters and rescue centers. Schultz partners with local
businesses, from Baskin-Robbins to Wal Mart, to provide food, toys and
other comforts to these unfortunate children; she recently received a
letter of commendation from First Lady Laura Bush.
Oh, did I mention that Gidget Schultz is 12 years old?
Gidget is a great example of a modern "knight in shining armor," and
she reminds us all that generosity is far more than just a passive
function of pity or sympathy - it's an active, dynamic quality that can
improve lives and build a better community. Her story is a perfect
example of the Code of Chivalry at work in the world today. You can
read the entire article, written by Sherry Parmet, in yesterday's
edition of the U-T online at
Or you can visit the website of Gidget's Way at
