We live in an era where rich people try to help out through charities, philanthropy, fighting disease, helping the poor and so many other worthwhile causes. I like that. I like the idea that whenever people can, they help. Obviously, there are many rich people who could do much more: but I am grateful that there are enough people who are helping others (I have always been a supporter of ‘good enough’ rather than ‘perfect’). It doesn’t matter how much they can afford, they just help.
In fact, when I first started writing, I was surprised at how much the author community was helpful: people gave me ideas, tips, offered to become beta-readers and promote my book and so many other nice gestures.
The librarians at the New York Public Library felt that the donation was “a plot twist equal to a classic mystery novel”. It was unexpected, but so welcome. And I think this is what makes the best in people: they can always amaze us in such a good way!
I found the article from The Guardian. And it made my day!
