Hazel and Nazih Zebian were sitting in their office doing what they described as the “usual whining and complaining” about how bad business had become and questioning how much longer they could last.
Then, they saw a story about a poor Egyptian farmer caring for a family of 14 whose herd of pigs was ripped away from him without compensation by a government in a “misguided attempt to prevent swine flu.”
Hazel’s heart ached for the man, and she wished that she could replace the herd herself.
The sad story added a perspective to her life and finances. She talked to her husband and sent the money – more than $1,000.
