I’m writing today to tell you about the generosity of people.
The Scouts are planning a Fund raising Pancake breakfast and so Last Wednesday night we made some fliers and went around to let people know about the breakfast and try to pre-sell some tickets. I was amazed at how many people just donated money. after about 30 minutes with 3 groups we raised about 135 dollars. I gave grown up thinking I was pretty generous, but I don’t know that I would just give money to a bunch of scouts if they came to the door. My friend Jayd posted a quote on Facebook a couple of week ago from President Hinckley.
“Think of what would happen if the principles of fast day and the fast offering were observed throughout the world. The hungry would be fed, the naked clothed, the homeless sheltered. Our burden of taxes would be lightened. The giver would not suffer but would be blessed by his small abstinence. A new measure of concern and unselfishness would grow in the hearts of people everywhere.” (Hinckley, 1991).
we all need to be more generous.
