Act of Kindness #22

If you've ever walked anywhere in New York, you know that you cannot take a step without being asked for spare change. I often find myself in such a hurry, and so accustomed to hearing these pleads, that the voices become background noise as I scurry down the streets. Well, I decided to pay attention. I committed to giving change to anyone who asked me for it until I ran out. I was able to give to four different people, each time looking them in the eye. They seemed very grateful for change that I give little thought to, and would have just thrown in a jar when I got home.
