A family in our homeschool group was suddenly finding themselves getting sick. Turns out they have mold in the house. They vacated, made calls, and were quoted $8,000 just to do the tear out and abatement- not for putting drywall back on and fixing all the tear out . So I rallied the troops and asked people to show up for a work day and give money. We had a dozen show up and some money was given. Second work day, about 8 showed up (mostly the same people) but money still came in. This morning is the third day- I think we’ll get about 3 people. The thing is, we have 160 families in out group- that’s about 600 people. Maybe $2,100 in cash, but $1,600 was from 2 people. As a guy who likes to help others with my time and money, I just don’t understand why SO MANY people wouldn’t want to help out. Sheesh- haven’t we all had struggles and difficulties and been blessed by friends and family with their help? Doesn’t that have an impact on how you would want to help others? I just don’t get it. And insight out there? Maybe some of you non-givers could help me understand, and show me ways to encourage non-givers to help out more.
