My daughter was telling me, today, about a friend of hers in college who won $4,000. Neat story how that happened, but here's the thing that amazed me:
Her friend first took $1000 and gave it to her best friend who was starting a band.
The second thing she did was call up my daughter and say, "Let's go to Wingers." Brooke's response was: "I don't want you to spend your money on us eating out." Her friend: "We're not eating." Her friend then walked in to Wingers, found a waiter, gave him $1000 and asked him to let everyone in the restaurant know that their meal was paid for. She then instructed him to use it all day to pay patrons' food bills.
I don't know what happened with the other $2000 - I think she may have put it toward the next semester's tuition, but isn't this just amazing?!?
I want to be that kind of person.
