Some charity pursuits had already happened before this idea budded in my mind. One of them:
I had a client a year or so ago that was having a really hard time – lost job, couldn’t make payments, etc. I collected almost $180 in donations from some very amazing people, which helped him settle some of his debts and buy a week’s worth of groceries.
He was so surprised when I gave him the donations that he almost got upset (why would anyone waste money on him?), but he soon was smiling and grateful.
It sure was a great feeling. But it’s the people that gave that made it possible, and I can never thank any of my donors enough for their support.
