Years ago I was in San Francisco on a business trip and I walked out of a little mom-and-pop restaurant to be greeted by a homeless man who asked me this question: What's the best nation in the world? I hesitated, sensing there was a punch line right around the corner. Indeed, there was. He told me: Donation.
I couldn't argue with him – so I gave him a few bucks and was on my way. While my homeless friend probably didn't invest the money I gave him in real estate, he did make me laugh and in my mind's eye, he deserved the few bucks I could easily spare. I've always been an open wallet for causes and a champion of good deeds.
Have you participated in a program that helps the local community? Let me know – I love spreading the good word.
