President Biden Surprises 4-Yr-Previous Twins With Cash For Ice Cream

There were some memorable quotes from President Biden’s Tulsa speech, but for two little girls the memorable moment was just before he spoke.

Lots of people came to Greenwood hoping to spend a moment with President Biden – but only two little girls left with money for ice cream.

The moment came just after the President’s introduction when he – surely – caught sight of the youngest members of the audience. The President stepped off the podium and walked over to a woman with two little girls for a brief interaction that briefly confused the crowd.

Back on the podium, the President declared, “I had to make sure these little girls got an ice cream.”

As the girls and their mother Lisa Madden emerged from the speech, she explained what had happened.

“He came over and gave them something discreetly and I didn’t even see what he gave them and he told them to get some ice cream,” Madden said.

The twins are four and a half and are called Nola and Indie. Madden is on the board of directors at the Greenwood Cultural Center, so they had a front row seat.

The President said the ice cream was their payment.

“My lord, I have to sit out a speech from the president. In my faith we call it purgatory, ”said Biden.

The girls came out with a plan and hit the streets and quickly returned with the ice cream – courtesy of the President – that was worth the day for these two little girls.

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – For a Boardman bakery owner, giving back to the community has always been his passion. When tragedy occurred in his own family, he switched gears to give all he could to the people he loves.

N2 By DaVill is a bakery in the heart of Boardman, and its owner Shaun DaVill is passionate about helping others.

“The whole heart of my business is doing good and doing something that is beyond me,” Shaun said.

When Shaun’s four-year-old great-nephew Charlie was diagnosed with stage three brain cancer in October, Shaun immediately adjusted his business to help.

“I love these people very much. I’m doing everything I can and bringing everything I can possibly bring to the table, ”Shaun said.

Shaun started a nonprofit as a branch of his business called The Heart of DaVill.

Right now they are selling cookie sets and other popular baked goods, as well as all of the proceeds
will go to Charlie and his treatment to fight cancer.

“The response was huge. We literally shipped to Los Angeles, Washington State, Florida and far to Vermont, ”Shaun said.

Charlie and his family live just outside of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but even hundreds of miles in between, Shaun knew he could use his platform to help his extended family when they really need it most.

“It stops your whole life and changes it completely. You feel like you can’t help it, ”said Marley, Charlie’s 12-year-old sister.

“This is my family, so they may not live in Ohio, but I do,” Shaun said.

Little Charlie has had surgery and radiation and will start chemotherapy in less than a week.

In addition, his father died unexpectedly on Friday.

“This is not just for me personally, but for a whole different population group, and I think it’s often more rewarding to find people who aren’t obvious,” Shaun said.

He says he’s so grateful for the support they’ve already received, but doesn’t want to slow down.

Shaun says his family need help now more than ever.

“Be part of the heart of DaVill. Help me, help other people, because that’s what I’m trying to do, ”Shaun said.

The heart of DaVill offers biscuit sets, biscuit bouquets and other goodies like hot chocolate
Bombs to support Charlie and they’re shipping across the country.
