A shared thought…


I have shared this thought with colleagues but it’s worth repeating…
I was shopping and wandered past a couple of ‘volunteers’ near a tree with tags on. After a conversation found out it was to collect presents for kids in care at Christmas. I was upset at the thought of a child not getting even one gift…naive…I know I can’t fix the world but it seemed such a profound sadness.
Simple solution I bought a couple of small gifts and donated them.

I felt better, cheap, rewarded, inadequate, fulfilled, angry at the world, sad and every other emotion you can imagine. I’m holding the thought that someone will get a gift and it may help a tiny bit…overall it was a good thing and I did it. Please consider helping in a similarly pathetic small way…if you can.
