Have you met Alan Jessop?
The other day I was sitting at Gus' Cafe in the City in Canberra. It was a bit of a dreary day, the rain had just cleared. I glanced outside the window and saw him, Alan.
This man has been a cornerstone of Canberra life. For as long as I remember I've seen Alan, rain, hail or shine out in the city collecting donations for those less fortunate than us.
He has a sense of greatness about him. When I spoke with him you could genuinely feel his kindness. I even think it's safe to say he glowed.
For over 28 years he has devoted on average 8 hours a day, 3 days a week. That's over 34,944 hours spent on giving.
Giving to others expecting nothing in return. Think about that...
How many hours do you spend on giving?
If we all could be a little more kind and give a little more the world would be a better place.
xo With love and gratitude
