- A local woman recently headed to Facebook to share how she and her neighbour have extended the hands of kindness toward each other
- In the post, she explains that they have started what they refer to as the "neighbours' mailbox" in which they make deposits of all sorts of things to help one another
- Many loved the brilliant idea, each sharing their thoughts on it in the comment section
A proud South African woman, Thezell Willers, recently headed to Facebook's ImStaying to share a hearty post about how she and her neighbours came across an idea to make both their lives easier and more pleasant.
Using what they refer to as a "neighbour mailbox", the neighbours share goodies and sometimes requests with each other over their wall. According to Thezell, sometimes they share cakes and other times they share a cup of milk or some sugar.
"The boundary wall between us and our neighbours is called “The Neighbours' Mailbox”. This is where we leave homemade muffins or bread for each other. If we (us or them) run out of milk, eggs etc, we help each other and place it in/collect it from “The neighbours' Mailbox”. WE HAVE THE BEST NEIGHBOURS and I wonder if this neighbourly care happens in other countries too," she wrote.
Stayers had this to say about the sweet post:
Gillian Warmenhove said:
"Wonderful idea, I have fabulous neighbours too."
Mo Lekhoaba said:
"I love this. I'd love to be in a neighbourhood like this. My kind of people."
Deborah Eagle said:
"Had that arrangement with lovely neighbours on either side in London, and now with the whole street in my little village in France. So important, so grateful for mine."
In similar heartwarming Briefly.co.za news, a young local mom, Letitia C Kolesky, recently headed to Facebook's ImStaying to share a very touching story about how her two little boys decided to stretch their hands of kindness and share their food with their neighbour, an adorable little girl.
"Hi, Stayers. Can I please share my story! This was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen and to be honest, I can say my 2 toddler boys have taught me a lesson I will never forget in life.
"I was told that I must please give his friend (Blessing) food also... I took the plate and stared at the food this won't be enough I thought so decided to share a little of our 3 plates my boy all excited ran to his friend and told her to come to eat!! And my heart just melted," she wrote.
