Quinn, Kari Duane’s oldest daughter, was faced with a tough decision last Saturday after her fiancé got cold feet and expressed a desire to call off the wedding. Instead of wallowing in sadness and regret, Kari and her family jumped into action to deal with the logistical fallout.

The reception had already been paid for and all preparations set in stone… that was when Kari realized the family had an opportunity to give back.

“We were like, OK then, we are going to serve,”Kari said.

Duane reached out to several homeless shelters in the area to spread the word about her budding idea. Unsure if anyone would show up, the family was elated and humbled when 90 or so homeless adults and children came to partake of the wedding feast.

The families that attended were blown away by the Duane’s generosity.

“To lose out on something so important to yourself and then give it to someone else is really giving, really kind,”one grateful attendee commented.

So what about Quinn? She’s doing as well as can be expected and is jetting off to Belize for a special mother and daughter vacation.

Things rarely go as expected. Take a note from the Duane family and know that you can always impact the lives of others, even when things don’t go as planned.
