I went to talk to a group of middle school students this week who had organized a food drive at their school. The school is a pretty “normal” school, not in the richest or poorest area of the community. The students were justly proud that they had raised $621 to help their neighbors.
The next day, I met with a philanthropic community member who gave me a check for $25,000. She too was doing what she felt she could to help hungry people.
I love my job because I am part of people making a difference in the lives of people in need. Whether people give $25, $621 or $25,000 they are making a difference.
