I know of many generous people who quietly go about doing great things for their neighbors. They donate money, they create opportunities, they sacrifice their time, talents, and everything they’ve been blessed with to help others through rough patches, to get job training, to give them a boost up to self-sufficiency.
And they do it anonymously. They choose to live well below their means so that those means can lift those around them.
I know about these generous people only because they’ve helped us, or because a mutual friend revealed to me the lengths of their care for those around them.
I stand in awe of them, because no one told them or forced them to do it. And that’s why it works. Only individuals can care for each other properly; governments have never got it right.

One of my favourite characters in the books…

Please do! I think you could fill a library with the stories of all of these characters.
