Wow! How wonderful of Mr. Parody to do this to help so many people. If I had a lot of money I would do the same thing.

Good deeds on any scale are always appreciated. Maybe we could brainstorm here on ways we could copy what he did on a scale that may be more financially feasible for more people to do.

He is a great guy and very generous. Loved that he had on his Boston Red Sox hat. He is a sponsor for the Red Sox Nation Club here in The Villages.

.
Greg and Jenni Parady are downright decent folk.

In August 250 people showed up for a surprise birthday party for Greg.
This was put on by the "Noah's Light Foundation".
Greg and Jenni are major contributors.

They tossed in an EXTRA $5 Grand as a token of appreciation for the brithday party. A total of Over $15,000. was raised at that event.

You've all heard of the "gift that keeps on giving", Greg Parady is the person who keeps on giving. Many charities have benefited from fund raisers and events he has sponsored.

That remains me to the story of St. Martin in France. A really generous couple and God bless their heart. Merry Christmas to them, too.

Oh no, wish I saw this thread 1st. I just posted my paraphrased version of this story. I heard it on my way home from work tonight in Columbus, Ohio. I heard "The Walmart in The Villages, Fl" and perked my ears up. I hope I was close on my version.

What an awesome story, couldn't wait to share!!!
