Not About Food 37

Pay It Forward [moved from Philadelphia]

gaffk | Nov 29, 201003:43 PM

I don't think I do anything exceptional. Once every quarter I contribute to my local foodbank (can I say Philabundance without censure?). My employer then matches me $ for $.

On the day before T'Giving I wrote my check. Today I got the payback I never needed or expected, but it warmed my heart just the same:
"Dear Ms xxxx:
Thank you! Your commitment to the fight against hunger is truly inspiring. Because of you, more hungry people are being fed.
Please accept my deepest thanks for your continued support.

This was not a stamped letter, it was a hand-written note enclosed in a hand-written envelope. So sad that my pittance is worthy of that attention.
