Painting for the Poor

July 21, 2016 | by Aish.com

A fundraiser approached the palatial home of a wealthy Jew named Steinberg and knocked gently on the door. When Mr. Steinberg answered, the fundraiser asked, "Please, sir, I am collecting money for the poor, could you please spare a donation?"

Mr. Steinberg said, "I have made a fortune in my lifetime by supplying goods for people. I never give anything away for nothing. However, if you go around the back, you will see a gallon of paint and a clean paint brush. If you will paint my porch, I will make a considerable donation."

So the fundraiser went around back and a little later he again knocked on the door. Mr. Steinberg said, "Finished already? Good. Come on in. Sit down. I’ll write you a check."

The fundraiser said, "Thank you very much, Mr. Steinberg. But there is something that I think you should know. It's not a Porch, it's a BMW."
