    If he wants to - of course

    If the person wants to help and we don’t let that would be hepech darchei sholom and also not doing what we need to – lkarev es habrios – Jew and lhavdil Non-Jew. Of course they should let him be mishtatef and let him have the zechus he wants. Why did the Rebbe say we should teach sheva mitzvos? And it strengthens the peulo.

    I spy so many awesome ppl!!!

    You are wonderful! You should be so proud of yourselves:
    -you were 100% right to not just take money from a stranger- this is what your parents, teachers etc. have been trying to teach you about safety! The fact is that he let the money and that is beautiful- but to ask an adult is of course the right thing.
    -You should be proud of being involved in such a wonderful project!

    The girls did it the right way – they called the school and now the school must find the guy and give him the donation receipt and thank you letter ….
    The school must have a policy for any private donation

    There are so many nice, kind and generous folks living around us. It’s great that we are finally focusing on them! What a gentleman this man was. Many people would have taken offence at the girls hesitation and just left. I probably would have. A special man indeed.

    wow!!
    Guest
    wow!!

    beautiful story! BR girls, you made a huge Kiddush Hashem and that guy proves to us what the Rebbe said years ago… the world is ready for Moshiach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Beautiful!

    Beautifully done exemplifying good midos! Go back to the store and ask them if they know the man or how to reach him so you can send the letter or maybe where he lives and leave it with a neighbor. He must be a man who lives by the bible, as it says one must give ‘tithe of earnings to charity.’ This was his way of giving his and acknowledging the fine qualities he saw in you girls!!!

    That is a wonderful story. It would be nice to publicize it in order to give the generous man the credit he deserves.

    The man who gave it to them works at a funeral home down the block and should be properly thanked.
