It was a windy day and also happened to be recycling day. Someone’s bin on our adopt-a-spot route had split. There were hundreds of pieces shredded papers, wrappers, containers etc. blowing all over the place. My 3 year old and I both had our tongs and piece by piece got it all cleaned up! While we were cleaning a lovely woman stopped and thanked us for our work. She said “I walk these streets regularly and it’s so nice to walk on a clean street.” She gave my son a $5 bill to go buy an ice cream for his hard work and doing such a good deed. This completely warmed my heart. It was so kind of her and my 3 year old had no shame in telling everyone he could that he got ice cream for picking up garbage!
