Just wanted to share this: Today was my third day raising money for a cause that is very close to me...ALS. I have to tell you that I never realized what a difference a dollar made. I know people sometimes don't think to stop and give money because it is not enough or it won't make a difference but it really does. I would say only five percent of the people who passed me by gave me money and I still probably managed to collect about $75 an hour. I know that the next time someone asks me for money, I will definitely find that $1 bill (I almost always do anyway but now I will make an extra effort). I will still of course have my causes and will donate more to them but what I learned from this is that if I gave $1 a week to 52 different causes, it would only cost me $52. I can still make my bigger donations to my favored charities but may also make an impact (albeit small) on some other charities that I otherwise would not consider writing a larger check to. I don't mean to sound preachy but just wanted to share what I learned today. I guess what I also learned is that people want to help and want to give money. All in all a good day.
