John Marsden Writing Topic #387
‘It’s the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can only do a little. Do what you can.’ What can you do?**
The first thought that popped into my head when I read this quote was charity.
I think everyone must contribute to some sort of charity/charities at some point in their lives. What I can do or what I have done to contribute to charity is give blood, going through my belongings every now and then and donating what I don’t want or use to charity, putting spare change in donation buckets and participating in fun-runs.
