Brad Paisley and His Wife, Kim, Teach Their Boys Compassion.  Beautiful Ripple Effect

“We took our boys to Unity Shoppe (a free grocery store in Santa Barbara) to teach them about serving others and giving back to people in need,” said Paisley. “And we came away surprised by what the organization had taught us. Most people don’t want handouts. They want dignity and respect.” They were so inspired by the way Unity Shoppe empowers people, including volunteers, that they decided to open their own model, called, The Store, in Nashville, TN.
