Default Generous Member Shoutout to rjackson44

Recently I bought some items from rjackson44 from the BST. I had mentioned off the cuff that my children would enjoy the items. Afterwards I thanked him to let them know the items had arrived. He then told me he would send something for my children.

Today that something arrived and it was two baseball action figures, a basketball figure, a howdy doody lunch box, and a signed mini helmet. Nothing in there was of much value to a grown collector, but to my 3 year old, 2 year old, and 1 year old it might as well been Christmas. They were very ecstatic.

I do not know rjackson44 personally but his gift to my children was very much appreciated. Here are some pictures of my children enjoying these items.

Three year old playing with the sosa and showing it off:

Thank you. One of the photos has my pregnant wife in the background, they kept running to her to show off the new items.

We were preparing to go to Wednesday night Church and my 3 year old wanted to take all the items with her, then settled for just taking the Sosa inside the lunchbox. In the end I was able to convince her to keep them home and they would be there when we got back. She was just overly excited and I think couldn't believe that for once a box came in the mail for them and not me.

Awesome and thanks for sharing! Octavio is one of the nicest guys I've had a pleasure to do business with on the board.

These types of threads are one of the various reasons I love Net54!

Can't agree more. This site is something special. There is a member on here that I regularly email with for about two years now asking for his advice and opinions on future purchases, as well as life decisions. I have never met him, but he has been extremely generous to me in literally surprising me on a few occasions with some spares that he didn't need and mailed them to me. We recently just gifted each other a couple cards and it's great in knowing how special this community is.

What a Wonderful Family, Your hands are full of Joy!

I've bought a few things from Octavio over the past few years!
And Honestly... I'm not at all surprised.

Octavio is a Gracious & Generous Person... weather its a Dollar item or 100 Dollar Item... (or as we all know now... even for Free), You would never know the difference. He is Simply one of the Kindest People around!

"Thanks Octavio, You made my Day ;- )))"
