A small act of kindness goes a long way for people with golden hearts.

Coming Home


Jesse and Maria Hulscher from Willmar, Minnesota just had their newborn son, Adler, and they’re about to come home in a few days.

A Cold Problem


On February 23 a storm forecast declared that there’s an upcoming snowstorm.

No Source Of Heat


The couple noticed that their furnace had stopped working right after Adler was born so they were worried as they tried to get it fixed as soon as possible.

Realizing the problem, Jesse instantly panicked. He said, “I have a two-year-old here, a newborn coming home in a couple of days and this was before the big potential snowstorm.”

Getting It Fixed


Jesse phoned up a local business, Magnuson Sheet Metal, for a quick and inexpensive fix on their broken furnace.

Overflowing Excitement

With his excitement about the new baby along with his anxieties about the snowstorm, Jesse couldn’t keep his emotions as he told the man on the phone about his situation.

Reassuring Jesse


Magnuson co-owner Craig Aurand recalled his conversation with Jesse. He said, “He said ‘the fan’s not working, the furnace isn’t working, my wife is in the hospital, we just had a baby yesterday.’ I just said take it easy, we’ll be right there.”

Problem Solved


That very same morning, the company sent out a worker to fix the furnace, and after just an hour everything has already been fixed. Now all that was left to take care of was the bill.

But when the invoice came in the mail, the couple was surprised at what it said. Jesse said, “I opened it up and looked at the receipt and it said, ‘no charge, take care of the new baby,'”
