Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Small Donations Add Up

--by myfbil, posted Mar 12, 2009

My husband belongs to an organization that meets monthly. For years I have been sending in refreshments for their meetings. They put out a donation can and the monies collected go into their treasury. They have raised hundreds of dollars to use toward projects just by this simple act - one which is also a selfish act because I love to bake! Sometimes what brings others pleasure can also bring us pleasure in so many ways.
