Wayne, NJ — Today, I was driving around trying to find a clothes donation box in my hometown of Wayne, New Jersey. I stopped by all of the spots I remembered as a kid, nothing.
A little took my son to Burger king to play on the slides and Space Ship jungle gym (not for food, I get a coffee, lol), then I stopped at a local bagel place to pick up Sunday breakfast for the family. No donation cans anywhere, just EMPTY tip jars, it made me sad.
At the worst point in my financial life, I focused on charity and giving to others and my life improved in every way. When I became too focused on the “goal” or just improving the bottom line, nothing changed. Help others, use your talents for something other than profit, it’ll make you feel better about yourself and you’ll leave the world a better place.
