During my commute home I passed by a boy of about 10 years old sitting along the curb with small cooler and a sign I could quite make out. I usually stop for children when they're selling lemonade and what not because it makes their day. I asked him, "What are you selling?"
"I'm raising money for the poor. I'm selling water for a dollar a bottle."
That sounded like a worthy cause to support. I asked him what his plans were.
"I'm going to find a poor person and give them all the money I raise."
From the look of the cooler, I was his first customer. I bought three bottles of water and told him I'm only taking one and I'd like for him to give two away to anyone he wants to.
I'm sure he's going to he brighten someone's life for a moment. And more beyond that.
