Ohio Roundtable: The Public Square - Hats off to the Salvation Army
Hats off to the Salvation Army
Would you have the courage to turn down a free gift of
Hats off to the Salvation Army in Marco Island, Florida.
They recently turned down a $100,000 legal contribution from a winner of the state
lottery. In an official statement they said they could not take the money while at the
same time working to help restore families whose lives had been ruined by gambling
addictions. Now, how about that?
As an employee of a non-profit organization I can tell you
that checks for $100,000 don't come across your desk very often. A check that size can
help you expand your staff, reach more people, can feed more hungry children, educate
those in desperate need and pay a lot of overdue bills. Turning down that kind of money
takes courage and such courage should be recognized, celebrated, and supported.
Wouldn't it be great if a few thousand people all across
Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and across America wrote checks to the Salvation Army in
Marco Island to let them know that there are still people who honor those with integrity.
What a message that would send?
Do you still believe in happy endings? I do. My wife
and I are writing a check. The Ohio Roundtable is writing a check.
Feel free to copy this information for your family,
friends, church and anybody you know. Wouldn't it be great if those good folks in Florida
discovered that people, churches and businesses all over the nation are still willing to
stand with an honest man?
