I ran across this touching tale of an unlikely friendship this week…
Sue Perry was searching for a place on Facebook where she could give away some old things she no longer needed…like DVDs, books, etc.
And in her search, she found a group for people of “Wakefield.”
Being from Wakefield herself, it seemed like a perfect fit.
The only problem is that Sue is from Wakefield, England and the group she joined was for residents of the small town of Wakefield, Quebec (my home province!)
Uh-oh! 😝 …She quickly realized her mistake.
“It was the skis and the ski boots and the warm clothing that sort of give it away, and also the place names I didn’t recognize,” Sue says.
She immediately put out a post explaining her mistake:
“Whoops, I’m sorry I’ve joined the wrong Wakefield group, I’m in the U.K. and hope you all stay safe across the pond,” her simple little post read.
Expecting that would be the end of it, Sue logged off.
But when she logged back in to check her notifications a little while later, she was blown away by the engagement.
“There were lots of people dropping in and chatting and asking how things were,” Sue recalls. “Things were a little dark at that time … so it was a lovely, lovely distraction.”
And after several days of back-and-forth, the Canadian Wakefield-ians decided to send their newest member a care package so that she could officially become “one of them.”
It contained CDs from local musicians, T-shirts, and even some maple syrup.
But it was the note that meant the most:
It read: “The spirit of love and kindness is alive and well in the heart of human kind!”
From Wakefield, England to Wakefield, Quebec and everywhere in between…goodness is still in style!
