An envelope with 18 cents inside was left as an offering at a Charlotte, North Carolina, church last Sunday, according to The Huffington Post.
Church members say they were deeply moved by the “powerful” gift.
“Please don’t be mad, I don’t have much,” someone wrote on the outside of the envelope, left in a collection plate at First United Methodist Church. “I’m homeless. God Bless.”
According to WCNC, the First United Methodist Church in uptown Charlotte is nestled between a homeless shelter in one direction [and] the big banks in the other.
Big Box retail stores like Walmart and Home Depot have always been willing to give large sums of money to politicians. And that money has bought them a lot of political favors.
Mike Papantonio talks about the big box return on investment with attorney Dave TeSelle.

Malala Yousafzai is the youngest person to ever win the Nobel Prize. She also just won money for her human rights advocacy, and she’s giving it all away to help children in Gaza rebuild their schools.
Wikipedia states: “On the afternoon of 9 October 2012, Yousafzai boarded her school bus in the northwest Pakistani district of Swat. A gunman asked for her by name, then pointed a pistol at her and fired three shots. One bullet hit the left side of Yousafzai’s forehead, travelled under her skin through the length of her face, and then went into her shoulder.
“In the days immediately following the attack, she remained unconscious and in critical condition, but later her condition improved enough for her to be sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, England, for intensive rehabilitation.”
Anyone who has been following her story knows that this sort of display of compassion is no surprise.
