Subtle Charity – Story 2

My friend and I were eating in a restaurant. Here came a lady with her blind husband and she had a bunch of tissues in her hand. This is a normal scenery in Malaysia. Blind people will go from one restaurant to the other selling tissues. Of course, they don’t go alone, they are accompanied by someone.

This weird friend of mine called up for the lady. and said she needs the tissue. She bought a pack of tissue which did not even cost RM1. But she paid RM20, since she said she didn’t have small change and as usual she asked the lady to keep the change. This time I did not ask anything, since she did not force me to take the tissue.

Helping people by charity is the most human thing we can do
