I have come to realize we are all more similar than different. Our clothing may be different. We may have different shades of skin color. Use different money. Speak different languages. Some have plenty. Some not enough.

But we all bleed red. We all have same basic needs. To feel valued. Important. Loved. And we all respond to Gratitude. Human touch. And kindness.

Anyone who has gone to college knows that the only way to connect with a nonprofit is by a special summoning ceremony involving unicorn’s blood and a wishbone.

The second step is to contact whichever person was so dismissive about your idea of help that it made you want to stop talking to people altogether. That person actually, is the only person in your community who will know how to enact the ceremony. Email that person about your concerns and your desire to help, and then hold your breath until they get back to you.
