Giving A Gift Card April 3, 2012 – Posted by Suzesunshine
I was leaving Walmart the other day and saw a young man standing by the exit. He was holding a sign that read, "Even 50 cents would help."

My heart went out to him because he looked to be the same age as my son. I didn’t want to give him money, so I decided to drive to McDonalds (about a mile away) and get him a gift card.

I bought the gift card but when I got back to Walmart he was gone. I drove around looking for him but didn’t see him.

About a week later, in another shopping area, I saw a man in a wheelchair. He was in the parking lot asking for money so he could buy some food. I reached into my car and gave him the McDonalds gift card.

It made him so happy that I decided to always carry a gift card to give to others I might meet who are in need.
