Not Enough, But Something

Not Enough, But Something

When you really begin doing charity work, you start to realize something that just about anyone who has ever given philanthropically will come to realize: it is never enough.

Within ten minutes we were ready to hit the road, and so we began driving to the lake that I had picked out the…
