Ramona is such a great place to live. The residents of our small town are truly amazing! There are so many people doing things for others this holiday season and there are so many THANKS going on in all of the forums; it makes you really proud to be apart of this community. I cant really mention all the people that have done great things, but I can mention a few that were posted in the Facebook forums.
Before Christmas is officially over I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to Mr and Mrs Bryant and the Santa Sleigh! Me and my family got to ride in it last weekend for first time in a very special place to me, around the Rady Children’s Hospital buildings. Last two years, I saw Santa’s Sleigh through my baby’s hospital window. I saw families together enjoying the holidays… I wondered many times if one day my little baby will be healthy enough to be able to do things like that… Never thought this year will be my turn in the Sleigh with my whole family! I don’t have the perfect words to describe the feeling of the wonderful Christmas Spirit the Bryant’s gave us. Mrs Bryant gave me also something that means a lot to me, she gave hope and faith too!
Thank you so much for making such a wonderful memories for me, my family and I’m sure for many many more!

I have been greatly appreciative of the people who have stepped in to help us give our children dinner and gifts for Christmas this year. – Jessica (In Ramona Community Forum)
To the gentleman that paid for our groceries at Stater Brothers this morning, I’m so unbelievably thankful for your generosity. My husband, our five kids and I decided to try and make it to the grocery store early this morning before the crowds hit and probably made a spectacle of ourselves, our kids clad in Christmas PJ’s piled into two carts making all sorts of strange and loud animal/dinosaur/robot/growly noises. I thought I was going to burst into tears in the checkout line when our checker said that someone paid for our groceries, I honestly didn’t know what to say and I wish that you were there to thank and hug. When we’re in a place to do so, we want to pay it forward and make another family’s morning/day/Christmas/year like you did ours. It’s things like this that really bring you back to reality and help you remember what the holidays are really about, caring for others, family, and just being thankful for the things that you have and those kind people in the world. We’ll be thinking of you as we enjoy or Christmas breakfast in the morning, we just can’t thank you enough for your kindness.

There are so many more that could be mentioned, it is truly amazing the giving spirit of people. I have seen post about people paying it forward at Starbucks (which happens all the time but it’s still cool), paying for others groceries, simply helping a stranger out, and shops & Ramona Business’s doing great things as well to help our community. One such notable mention and reason for the topic of this episode of Ramona Podcast, is the person or people that have paid off Kmart layaway’s down to one penny for many people. How freaking cool is that! At a time when many people are stressing to make payments on layaway items, they find out somebody has paid it off down to one cent. What a great feeling that must have been for these people. So to the people who paid these things off for complete strangers, we here at Ramona Town Radio thank you. Its your generosity and selfless act that make these holidays great for the people you helped.
