As we enter an especially dark time in this pandemic and unemployment crisis, I had an idea. We have saved a little money this year due to no travel and few outings. Others have lost their jobs and businesses, and struggle to pay their bills or to even feed their families.
When we passed the patient line outside a thrift store, I wondered what would happen if someone offered them a small amount of cash. A few days later we tried it. To our pleasant surprise, when we told them of our relative good fortune and respectfully asked if $20 would be helpful every one of them graciously accepted.
We then asked if they would feel comfortable for us to video them and post it online in the hope of encouraging others to do something similar. Again, most agreed to the video and even told us how they'd spend the cash. Most touching for us was the young mother who would buy food for her daughter. So we've started a YouTube Channel with the videos. If you do something like this, would you be willing to View / Like / Comment / Subscribe or even send us your own photo / video, or post them for us to link to?
