Everything I had in my pocket.

I just handed it over. Across the table, it was an impulse donation, for sure. But he had me, without trying, without asking.

Here are my reasons why:

-It was a good story, well told,

-I had the image of tragic teen suicides in my mind, the school friend of mine who did the same. In front of a train, because of money issues.

-I identified with the local guy who steps up and does something about it. Who says ‘no more, not in my community’, I want that to happen. I want to be that man.

-He told the story with heart, He cared about it. You could see that, he told me about his connection with the ‘how’¬†they have chosen to deal with this rash of suicides. How he loves sport, how it had taught him things, how he coaches and how he believes it can help.

-He was also humble, with a modest goal, that he was nearly at, I wanted him to succeed, I believed in his goal. So I helped.

You can too: Tim Moon did a ten day marathon meditation cut off from the world, he did it for the Beehive Foundation, building resilience in young people.
