Not everyone can give it but wouldn t it be great! If people gave five bucks it would make a difference.

Time is getting short and a man s gotta do what a man s gotta do? An old farmer used to tell me that.

The people who can’t give shouldn’t worry about it, they have enough to deal with. What we should focus on is the people who can, and I’m sure there are enough of us that are able to donate even a dollar that it will make a huge difference. When I was a kid, whenever me and my family were personally touched by someone really struggling, my dad used to say “Son, there but for the grace of God goes you or me.” As far as donating goes, he had another saying that I carry with me to this day and I think it’s relevant here. You have to understand, he grew up picking cotton on a farm in South Carolina and had 13 brothers and sisters, anyway he would tell me “I used to feel sorry for myself when I was a kid because I didn’t have any shoes, then one day when I was walking to school, I came across a man with no feet.”

Most folks can give something, the power is in the numbers.
