Well.... I had a 3 hour trip to make
so I couldn't take the time to get my car washed...
But I told the three girls with the sign
that I would give them a donation when
I left the store.
I'm sure everyone told them that
and they ambushed me again
as I left.
But I was ready for them
I put a cash donation in their box
and asked them to tell me why they were standing in the hot sun raising money.
They were exuberant and joyful and told me
all the good things the car wash money would do.
I thanked them for their hard work
and gave them each a personal dollar
to buy a drink
or make a donation
or share with the others
Sometimes I think we forget that it is simply because we HAVE
that we can make the choice to GIVE.
Today I gave money to the fundraiser
and a choice to the girls.
