"I want you to know that you inspired me today. I admit that I’m one of those people that have always kind of looked down my nose at shopping at the Salvation Army store. Since meeting you and following your Facebook feed, my prejudice has been chipped away, so today I stopped in the local Salvation Army store that I’ve driven past hundreds of times. I wanted to find a T-shirt or 2... Thanks for making me think differently."
