We’re currently flooded with various campaigns that promise, at best, speculative results. Here is a campaign that you can join with no fear, I’m starting it.
Drop a quarter!
Why, oh why would you drop a quarter? The answer is easy, someone will find your quarter and their day will be supercharged. If you like, approach a perfect stranger and say “Hi, I’d like to pay off all of your debts, no strings attached” then enjoy a healthy dose of skeptical rebuke while you hope that the person doesn’t call the cops to report an aggressive and shady solicitor. Likely, said person will never bother inquire as to your motivation to help.
If that same person found a quarter (be sure to drop it ‘heads up’ to circumvent superstition), they might find new hope that today is the day that things might go their way. Fortunately, for us, changing someones day does not cost $50,000.00 , it costs $0.25. This idea could have cost $0.10, but the idea of dropping a dime is disagreeable to many.
- You make a clean drop, nobody notices.
- Someone notices your drop and tries to return the coin to you. Should that happen, inform them that the drop was deliberate and why.
- The coin falls in a gutter. This is fine, the person who cleans the gutters will be happy.
I am asking a campaign contribution of $0.25, or the equal in your local currency. To donate, drop a coin on the ground in a manner that circumvents superstition for whoever picks it up. Please contribute!
