There’s so much going on right now, and I have to admit my mind is on the victims of Hurricane Harvey. I cannot tear myself from the images; from the stories of rescues; from the stories of loss.
But there’s one story I cannot get enough of, and that’s the glorious tale of Mattress Mack, a furniture dealer who opened his stores to evacuees, partnering with restaurants to feed them all. He even sent his own trucks out to rescue people.
This is a man with a for-profit business. Not a man with a for-profit business disguised as a church who had to be shamed into taking in evacuees, Joel Osteen. But a man with a for-profit business who did the same for victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Want a blast of the warm and fuzzies? Here you go.
