BANGOR | The smiles that spread across a person’s face when they are given something out of the blue — something they didn’t ask for — is the reward. “It’s amazing,” a Bangor Elf said on Saturday while out spreading Christmas cheer. The Bangor Elves, a group of anonymous …

      More things like this do happen. Many people that give do not ask or even want recognition. There are some huge donors in Bangor that give some large amounts of money and resources to the needy. Can there be more? Absolutely. This is great and this story is great because it reminds people that it is better to give then receive. It’s amazing what happens when everyone pitches in. People don’t even need to have any money. A person with no means at all could still offer to shovel someones driveway, offer a nice hello, open a door for someone. Anything.

      • It’s sad that our news is filled with none senseless stories

    I am an older Mainah and am blessed with elves, 24/7/365, who make my life better and more easy with thoughtful gestures and kind help. Paying it forward works — I am only one example.

    I so agree with the poster who wrote you do not have to give money to be an angel or elf to someone else. So thank you a certain lady and all the other employees at a bank I go to for hugs and the caring. For the record I have a very small account with this bank. Thank you to my hairdresser who when I was hurting bought me a blanket for my bed so I could know someone cared about me. I am so blessed to be living here in Biddeford Maine. I am attempting to figure out some ways to do what I can to be an elf to others in this part of Maine.
