29 Gifts, Day 10: Children’s Hospital Foundation

May 10th, 2011

It was 3:45pm.  I was standing in the checkout line of Walmart, fretting to myself because I hadn’t done my gift for the day yet.  I was about to head home and once home for the evening, my gift-giving opportunities shrink somewhat (though, happily, in our digital world, you can contribute to the charity of your choice at any hour!).

I stepped up to the checkout to buy supplies for my agency’s big fundraiser this weekend and the checkout guy said cheerily: “Would you like to donate a dollar to support the Children’s Hospital Foundation?”

Why yes, yes I would.  The moral of our story: never despair.  Opportunities for generosity truly are all around!
