Today I got a picture from a very giving and deliberate man in South Africa. Realizing that a picture tells 1000 words, he opted to leave out the details and let the picture speak for itself. Keep in mind when you see the book the money was left in, that this drop was made in South Africa 🙂

“S____ B______ here. We just ‘chatted’ via Twitter.
Lemme first tell you that I think your concept is amazing.
Firstly, it’s perfect because you never know who you might be helping and secondly because you can never ‘bask in the thanks.’
Many people give to the ‘needy’ because it makes THEM feel better…
With your concept (typically) no one should know what you did, but you.
I decided to place money like this (feel free to ad the pic) on a regular basis.
I purposely DO NOT try to pick places where either poor or rich people will be, public places like news agencies and quiet times…
The most amazing thing is that either some stinging rich snob will find it and realize there’s more to life than they thought or that someone really needs it and might just start believing prayer.
No matter the result – it’s not my place to decide or to try to manipulate who benefits.THAT is the beauty of it!
Also – the amount is irrelevant! It’s about the THOUGHT!
All of the very best to all the amazing people who give and maximum happiness to all those who receive!
I hope this makes 2012 a year to remember for some of the BEST reasons ever!
You’re welcome to add this to your site with the pic, but not my name, please.”
THAT is what this thing is all about 🙂
