True Love from One Dad6.16.17
We received this great story from one of our dedicated supporters. Why does Anthony Tubbiolo, a loving father, husband, and owner of True Love Honey, care so much about the mission of RMHC? Here’s what he had to say.
True Love Honey started a little over 7 years ago with just $212.00. I was working 3 jobs all on the weekends with no work during the week. I was in a failed marriage that was on the way out and felt like the best years were absolutely behind me. Feeling no options were worse than the present circumstances, I purchased a case of honey from a local beekeeper with the remainder of my savings. I sat on the side of the road and sold the case of honey and within a few weeks it became a full time endeavor.
Knowing I could only serve one master, I quit the 3 part time jobs I had and made a promise to God that I would turn around my life and seek out my potential instead of wasting it. About a year and a half later a customer approached the roadside stand and asked for advise on payment solutions for a business idea she had been working on. That was when I met Hilda, and we quickly became friends. That friendship turned into a family.
With two people now running True Love Honey, the business grew quickly to the point where there was a little left over to go to some great charities. We had a newborn that was perfect in every way. Feeling fortunate and blessed, we decided to commit ourselves to those charities that saw and loved life the same way we did. Today we are able help four different charities. Each month we give something we never before thought possible.
Ronald McDonald House was a no-brainer since I had prior exposure to them in a prior business venture that raised many thousands of dollars for RMHC. The Tubbiolo family looks forward for their Ronald McDonald House relationship to grow and expand as their family business grows in the coming years. Thanks Ronald McDonald House for all you do.
Anthony, Hilda, Melody, and Emily
Thank you, Tubbiolo family, for all that you do for our families! It is because of people like you in our community that we are able to provide a “home-away-from-home” for more than 600 families each year.
