We all know you to be a good man,  a person who manages to feed multitudes by 
enabling companies & individuals the opportunity to "do the right thing" 
through your superlative Atlanta  food bank & community gardening program - a 
good karma magnet. 

As shocked as you must have been by this "drive-by luncheon", it was part of 
the great karmic benefit  that eventually hits all, dues-paid-up American 
Community Gardening Association members at one time or another.  Mind you, 
you really were set to win the Lotto that day, if you had played and the 
luncheon was supposed to happen in Cleveland - however, the great karmic 
wheel is not as accurate as it might be. We are working on this.  :) 

In all seriousness, the owner of the thrift store did a nice by your group 
and as a canny neighborhood businessman figured that an unsolicited act of 
goodwill would create a ripple effect larger than a discreet check to an 
organized charity.  None of you will ever forget this suprise and I would not 
be suprised if some of those girl scouts and moms become regular customers.  
A thank-you note from the group might help promote a beautiful relationship.  
Let's hope this business prospers. 

May the rest of our business community commit more random  acts of  
appreciation (or enlightened self-interest)  especially around dues-paid-up 
ACGA members in the future!

Best wishes,
Adam Honigman
