My sofa crew: Adam, Rachel, Emmy, Wren and Justin

Deedzers Join Forces To Give A Sofa A Good Home

It's what the Deedzer Network is all about: people helping other people.

Adam was giving away furniture.

Emmy needed a sofa, but had no way to haul it.

You see, Emmy's old sofa broke, so she answered an ad for a free one. Adam's mom passed away recently and he wanted her sofa to go to a good home.

Welcome to the Deedzer Network, Adam! You didn't realize it, but you're a Good Deedzer now.

I stepped in when Emmy reached out to Pittsburgh Good Deeds asking for help moving the sofa to her apartment.

Justin helps take the sofa off my truck

I picked up my wife Rachel after work and off we went to Robinson Township, west of Pittsburgh, to meet Emmy and Adam.

Not letting a little rain stop us, we wrapped the sofa with shower curtains and shrink wrap and transported it to its new home in McKees Rocks.

Good deed done in less than two hours! Sometimes all it takes is a few hours out of your day to make a difference in another person's life.
