Happy Holidays to all! Easterns Automotive Group and WUSA 9 recently teamed up for their Get Up Give Back campaign where they participated in random acts of kindness. The day before Thanksgiving, Reese Waters of the Get Up DC crew went with the WUSA 9 camera crew down to Giant Food in Congress Heights which is a residential neighborhood in Southeast Washington D.C. However, he didn’t come empty handed. Waters had $1,000 in cash with him on behalf of proud sponsor Easterns. He waited until customers were almost done checking out approach them and pay for their items.
Small deeds like this truly do go along way especially during this time of year. The joy on themany faces that Waters helped is truly remarkable as you will see in the video. These lucky individuals were able to keep the money they were about to spend. The thought of having a few extra dollars is truly a great feeling during the holidays. People often forget that not everyone is fortunate enough to have a great Thanksgiving. Something as simple as food could mean the world to someone that doesn’t have much of it. If you are able to, please help someone that you see in need. It’s always best to picture yourself in someone else’s shoes and imagine yourself needing assistance. If everyone chipped in and helped even one person, it would result in us living in a better community and ultimately a better world. Be the change you want to see!
Special thanks to Reese Waters for facilitating this and continuously going above and beyond.
If you know someone in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area that is worthy of being helped or recognized, please contact at @ReeseWaters on social media. #GetUpDC #GetUpGiveBack
