Giving when poor

by Michelle Fortes

*Someone asked Bill Gates – MICROSOFT CEO, “Is there any person richer than you?”*🤔

He said, “YES!, only one. Many years ago, I had been dismissed and I had gone to New York airport.
I read titles of newspapers there.
I liked one of them and I wanted to buy it. But I didn’t have money.
So abandoned the idea, when suddenly, a black boy called me and told me, “This news paper for you.”
I said, but I don’t have money.
He said, “No problem, I give you for free”.

After 3 months, I went there. Coincidentally, that story happened again and that same boy gave me another free newspaper again.
I said, I can’t accept it.
But he insisted, “I give you from my profit.”

After 19 years, I had been rich and I decided to find that boy.
I found him after one and half month’s search.
I asked him, do you know me? He said, “Yes!, you’re famous, Bill Gates.”

I said, “you gave me free newspaper 2 times many years ago.
Now, I want to compensate it. I am going to give you everything that you want.”

Black young man replied, “You can’t compensate it!”
I said, “why?”
He replied, “Because I gave you even when I was poor. But, you want to give me when you are rich. So, how do you compensate?”

Bill Gates said, “I believe that black young man is richer than me.”

You don’t have to be rich or wait to be rich to give……

Real attitude of *GIVING* is….. *even when you* lack it / are poor / are in suffering! 🙏

*🙏This is THE True help, OUT OF A true spirit🙏*

That is why Great People always say that a *Charity made in bad times is much worthier than the one of good times!*
