TFCU ‘Thankful for You’ Winner: Delivers Unconditional Love, Food and Words of Wisdom
On a whim, TFCU member Cherjuan Goodman entered her mother, Dorothy Greer, into TFCU’s “Thankful for You” giveaway last fall. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, contest participants were encouraged to share kind words and nominate a friend, family member or co-worker in TFCU’s Instagram and Facebook contest for a chance to win a $300 Visa® Gift Card.
“It’s always easy to talk about my mom. She is the sweetest person I know,” said Cherjuan. “She always gives sound advice. She feeds and loves everyone unconditionally.”
During the time of the “Thankful for You” giveaway, Cherjuan had just been reviewing Facebook memories from past Thanksgivings—including words of wisdom from her mom. “She’ll send little notes about love, embracing what you have, and not dwelling on what you can’t buy for people. Just enjoy being around them,” said Cherjuan.
Sadly, right after Cherjuan entered her mother into the TFCU giveaway, Cherjuan’s father passed away. “After the funeral, we decided it would be good for my mom to get away for a little bit and take some time for herself. We’re originally from New Orleans, so she went there to spend some time with her sisters, nieces, and nephews,” said Cherjuan.
When the TFCU team presented Dorothy with the $300 prize via Facetime, she excitedly declared, “I’m going to pay it forward! I’m going to give it away!”
