A book store in Baltimore Maryland named "The Book Thing" which is a charity that gets its business from donations from the people of money and books is making some news for recovering from a fire destroyed the store in March 2016. After the fire destroyed the building, the people in Maryland donated money and books from fundraisers so Wattenberg could reopen his store last month. The Book Thing is useful not only for people who like to read but school teachers buy the books so students can learn their subjects in the school system in Baltimore and beyond

That's an excellent thing to do. I also once bought books to be given away to mosques.

That is what makes people great. Helping others without any expectation of a reward.

Funny thing is I have to look at several sites like Sunny Skyz, CBS News or Good News to find a good news story.
