Occasionally, you come across a deed or act that melts your heart.

You are aware of the type of stuff I am referring to. It may be a tale about someone going above and above to facilitate a tremendous act of generosity, or it could be about someone simply doing something good without expecting anything in return.

Executing such a task frequently results in the sense of happiness being bestowed upon one’s soul. Having said that, it’s always wonderful to applaud those who are making a sincere effort to improve the world.

Shane McDaniel and his twin boys Henry and Harrison are do-gooders. Shane spent a lot of time as a child cutting firewood with his father and was keen for his 21-year-old sons to assist him in continuing the tradition…

The family, who lives in Lake Stevens, Washington, faced a difficult task after a severe storm.

As Shane noted, “I had a lot of wood to cut as a result of storm damage and tree removal.” It just kept stacking up. Once the quantity of wood reached a certain level, we realized we could do something better with it.”

They put their minds together and devised a plan that would clear the wood and benefit a large number of other people.

“The Pacific Northwest is a fairly harsh region; it’s chilly and damp,” McDaniel explained to PEOPLE Magazine. Once I began, I recognized the necessity and my eyes were awakened. So many people stopped and inquired about purchasing it that we simply began giving it away.”

Shane, Henry, and Harrison worked on the project from March to October 2018, during which time they chopped enough firewood to fill 80 trucks.

Shane resorted to Facebook to make a collecting plea. That is correct… they had more firewood than they could possibly use.

Shane’s post, unsurprisingly, got a great deal of attention. The majority of people were taken aback by the family’s kindness. Several even volunteered to distribute the firewood to those unable to come and obtain it.

Excellent sensation

“It’s quite a sight to behold. You can see this sense of pride and sharing that I don’t believe they had previously,” Shane explained.

“People remember when you do something good for them. I take pleasure in assisting others.
