What I could have done instead
October 7, 2012 § 2 Comments
On the way to lunch yesterday, in front of a subway station, I was approached by this little girl for donations to Red-cross.
Though I prefer donations to end-users directly and not to aid organizations, instead of troubling her with my preferences, ideals, etc, I did make a small donation! So far, all is well…
Later, at the other end of subway, another red-cross girl (may be it’s a school project or something!!), was collecting
funds.. Normally a gentlemanly-generous sort of person, I, for some reason chose to act otherwise this time!! 😐
Me, with a nice smiling face said – “I just made a donation to red-cross at so and so place… is it ok to pass by?”
She smilingly agreed and one was happy to finally get closer to lunch…
But what one could have done instead, is make a small donation… and probably added something like.. “This is my 2nd donation to red cross in the past 5 minutes.. but that’s ok, i really appreciate the great job you guys are doing for this… have a good day.. “
Now, how tough is that? It would have made her day and definitely mine too..
