People are good. Plain and simple. With all the negative headlines looming, it’s easy to forget the kindness and generosity apparent in the Blue Water Area. We, at Blue Water Healthy Living want to take the time and shed light on one local business in particular, the Colonial Diner, who take random acts of kindness including free hugs, to the next level.

What began as a simple act of kindness, has quickly turned into a system now called, the Help Our Homeless Initiative. Brianna, a Colonial Waitress says, “People want to help, they just need a way to be able to do it.”

From all of us at Blue Water Healthy Living, to the staff of the Colonial Diner, and the anonymous givers in our area we commend you and thank you for renewing our faith in the goodness of people.
