More proof that the world does not totally suck

An update about this summer's camp activities from our local UCC camp director, Deeg Nelson included this:

We also created and sent 70 care packages to the company of a former
camper who is now serving in Iraq during Senior High Camp. This was a
incredibly rewarding week for our campers. A patron of the post office
asked how we were paying postage. When I replied "donations," he handed
us $50 for the project.

Remember that next time you hear a warning about someone "going postal"
