Five Pounds For A Big Issue
--by afriendlysmile, posted Apr 30, 2007
I thought I would do an act on kindness on the oldie worldie streets. I saw a man was selling Big Issue magazines for a £1 -- it is a scheme for homeless people to raise money. He wasn't having much luck as everybody just averted their eyes; it must be soul destroying to be ignored all the time.
I went over to him and said hi and gave him £5. Quickly, he started to find the change and I told him it didn't matter. You would not of believed the transformation that came over him when he gave me a big smile! He looked a different person, a human being with a heart and soul.
"Thank you, thank you," he beamed. I felt really pleased that such a little can make a big a difference to someones day.
Congrats to you for making his day and my day too! (wink) Brighteyes
