Good Deedzers Help A Deserving Mom On Moving Day

When the mother of a special needs child needed help moving to a new townhouse, the Deedzer network jumped into action.

Sabrina reached out to Pittsburgh Good Deeds for help moving because she knew she couldn't do it alone, but was worried about her elderly dad trying to help her carry heavy furniture.

We were all-in, and it didn't take long for Good Deedzer Ryan to come forward and offer his help.

My wife Rachel and I meet our new Good Deedzer Ryan.

Ryan recently moved back to Pittsburgh from Philadelphia and wanted to get more involved and give back to the community.

Here's Ryan and me hauling furniture from Sabrina's old house.

Ryan gave up his Saturday and joined my wife Rachel and me as we helped Sabrina move from Rankin, about 10 miles south of Pittsburgh, to East Liberty, a neighborhood in the city limits.

I used to hate moving, but now I actually enjoy it, especially because I know we're making a difference.

This dresser was a lot heavier than it looked!

People say I shouldn't be lifting heavy things because I injured my back 8 years ago. But, helping others is more important to me than a few aches and pains that'll work their way out.

A few hours later, the truck was jam packed and the three of us headed to Sabrina's new home for round two of our adventure.

Once the truck was unloaded, we were ready to call it a day, feeling a sense of satisfaction for helping a stranger who's become a new friend.

Time to call it a day after a job well done.
