A Washington, DC man’s year-long campaign of generosity inspires others to give, too. Even though Reed Sanders is unemployed, he has become a philanthropist who gives ten dollars to a stranger each and every day. He calls it his “year of giving,” and tries to choose those who need an extra hand in hard economic times. The effort was inspired by his mother.
The inspiration goes beyond his personal giving to a website that documents specific needs, like a pair of shoes, or pants for a particular individual that he met along the way. His readers are helping fulfill those requests.
