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!
