Hey South East Florida!!!!

There is a furniture store down in South East Florida that I just love. It's called El Dorado. Shopping in these stores is akin to going to a museum or a show. It's set up "old world" with little villages. There's a cafe and even entertainment. Of all the furniture stores I've been in, and believe me that's a lot of furniture stores, these are the coolest - By Far!!

Anyway, I saw this morning that to celebrate 40 years of being in business they are giving away furniture to 40 needy families.

That's a lot of furniture!!

"The families will be nominated by the community and chosen by a selection committee to receive the furniture, with maximum value of about $5,000 for each. The giveaway will run for 20 weeks, with two families chosen each week through mid-November."

The owners, The Cabo family, are Cuban refugees that have worked hard and achieved the American Dream. And the best part is they believing in Payin' Forward.

So, check out the article. If you know of a deserving family in that area, nominate them. If you live in the area, I highly recommend checking out the stores.

It's kind of my way of payin' it forward too.

That's really cool! I'm familiar with the stores; even bought some stuff there about 10 years ago. :)
