You know that humbling feeling when your four year old neighbour unexpectedly appears at your door and hands you a jar of coins? I do! Tonight I was witness to an honest act of pure generosity.
Enterprising young Oskar had spontaneously decided to go round our neighborhood accompanied by his big brother selling “things” to raise money for the Mercy Tree school books campaign.
Oskar explained he had sold some “pretty stones, some marbles and his torch”. His unprompted act of kindness was really touching, he totally blew me away. He raised enough money to buy school books for a poverty stricken and vulnerable child for approximately six months. Not a bad achievement for a preschooler.
Thanks Oskar and Halvor for your kind contribution, the money has gone straight into the school books bank account.
