Well, it’s July 4th again and what’s today’s message before the holiday weekend? Never discount anyone!
Last year, I found an $8 million dollar bequest going for the animals. So this year, my first google search for bequest stories pulled up this story of a former gas station employee and janitor who left over $6 million to various charities, including two big ones: $4.8 million to the Brattleboro Memorial Hospital and $1.2 million to the local library. Of course, these were largest gifts each institution had ever received. Click the picture to see the original story.
You never know.
Have a great holiday weekend!
