True kindness

I work at Dollar Tree and we have been asking customers if they would be interested in purchasing school supplies for our local schools for just a dollar. Lots of people have their reasons why they can’t donate, like, “I already give to our church” or, “I am sick of being asked for my money”.

Yesterday, though, we had a young man, maybe 22 years old, walk right in and asked me about the donations. He said he saw our sign and wanted to donate. He asked if it was ok to donate the whole basket, which was about $50 worth of school supplies. I had to ask him if he was sure because I had never had someone ask that before. He gladly donated every item in my basket and didn’t buy a single item for himself. That, my friends, is true kindness! – AngelaΒ πŸ™‚
