Canvassing experiences

Eyes cast down, they scurry past me lest I have a chance to ask them for a donation for the Foundation I am canvassing for.

Some (at least two so far) have broken out in a run and rushed down the ramp in order to avoid my little table.

It is amazing how many skills people use to avoid coming face to face with a request for donations!

I am thankful for the ones who have stopped and donated cash.  Most of them did not want receipts.

I may have to resort to going door to door but I am not thrilled to do that as I don't enjoy knocking on people's doors.  I also have canvassed on Facebook and also to friends who have emails so hopefully that may bring in some money for the Foundation.

It is a good thing that I have a thick skin and don't take it personally.

Human nature sure is interesting!


Many thanks for your kind spirit and time Wilma. Reaching out to others to remind them how fortunate they are is so important. Many of us live a drive by life and forget to practice gratitude for our health. If everyone gives something small or large it will make a difference.  I'm so proud to call you my friend.  Thank you SO MUCH ❤️
