"The measure for journalists should not be the professional recognition of colleagues, but rather the mark we make in the hearts of readers." -Gerald Herbert

We received an update on the "Teresa Project" birthday card campaign. As of today, Teresa, whose brother sought to flood her mailbox with birthday cards this year, has received 375 cards and letters, along with gifts from all across Florida and Tennessee and two dozen other states, as well as Canada, England, Ireland, Australia, Germany and The Netherlands.
Thanks to the Teresa Project, the wheelchair-bound woman, who always sends other people cards, has gotten messages and good wishes from Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, and Senator Charlotte Burks, many large companies across the U.S., such as Lowes, Grand Ole Opry, Hersheys, General Mills, and others.
"She has enjoyed, as has my Mom, opening and reading the messages inside," Harold Scott, the loving brother who launched the project, told the Good News Network. "She got gifts of hummingbird feeders/nectar, jewelry, balloons, flowers, and even activity books from children."
"Thank you all very much."
Originally, Harold Scott wrote to the Good News Network asking if he could tell the story of Teresa, who has lived with cerebral palsy her entire life but remains the kindest of people. She has never failed to send out cards to family and friends for birthdays, holidays, or no reason other than wanting to do something nice for others.
