Damage From Bullies Repaired by Passing Sequins

Student, Jordan Addison had his car vandalized by bullies and then repaired by kind business owners local to Roanoke VA spearheaded by Richard Henegar, Jr., the manager at Quality Auto Paint and Body.

Excerpts from Huffington Post story by Ryan Grenoble:

Over the course of just three months this year, reports WDBJ, Addison’s car has been damaged four times. Vandals have keyed homophobic slurs into the side, painted impossible-to-remove hate speech on the panels, and caused other damage totaling around $2,500 — an amount Addison couldn’t afford to pay to have the car fixed.

Luckily for Addison, he didn’t have to.   Link to the full story and video, Huffington Post.

Other businesses that contributed to the effort were Parts Unlimited in Vinton, Advance Auto Parts, Moon’s Auto Body, Rice Toyota, Val’s Automotive, The Rod Shop, B&C Exterminating, Twists & Turns, AJ’s Landscaping and Sunnybrook Auto Spa.

Kindness can soften the blows from bullies.
