Good morning. What better way to start a day than with a smile.

Charitable Contributions


The United Way realized that it had never received a

donation from the city’s most successful lawyer. So a

United Way volunteer paid the lawyer a visit in his

lavish office.

The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, ‘Our

research shows that even though your annual income is

over two million dollars, you don’t give a penny to

charity. Wouldn’t you like to give something back to

your community through the United Way?”

The lawyer thinks for a minute and says, ‘First, did

your research also show you that my mother is dying

after a long, painful illness and she has huge medical

bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?’

Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbles, ‘Uh… no, I

didn’t know that.’ ‘Secondly,’ says the lawyer, ’ did

it show that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind

and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support

his wife and six children?’

The stricken United Way rep begins to stammer an

apology, but is cut off again.

‘Thirdly, did your research also show you that my

sister’s husband died in dreadful car accident,

leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three

children, one of whom is disabled and another that has

learning disabilities requiring an array of private

tutors?’

The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten,

says, ‘I’m so sorry, I had no idea.’

And the lawyer says, ‘So…if I didn’t give any money

to them, what makes you think I’d give any to you?’
