Let me preface this with saying, I know I am emotional today.
I went to Burger King to grab a sandwich after work today (I guess this is what I get for fast food) and left in tears. Some of you know that Burger King has National Childhood Cancer Awareness month in July. You donate $1 to childhood cancer research and in return you get a scratch ticket, that gives you something each time in return. The smallest 'prize' is $1 off your meal, which pays for your ticket. Chad and I give all we have when we go there.
Today I watched 10+ people scowl when asked if they could donate $1 for this cause. It literally broke my heart. Some of these people had children or grandchildren with them even. And, even someone I know said no. I was so saddened that I bought tickets to cover those who said no...all the money I had at least. I just couldn't believe it.
I know that these people maybe bought 50 of them yesterday, or donate thousands to another cause, but it just hurt my feelings the way they said no.
Today is the last day of the promotion (I believe it is only through July)...and I want to go buy a hundred more tickets just to make up for those who have passed by the opportunity.
I know that everyone can't give to every cause...but $1 won't break you if you are going out to eat - and you would get the money back in product from the same place. I am so sad right now...I am rambling, I know.
