You Never Know Who is Listening

You Never Know Who is Listening

Just last year I spoke to a small Monday evening Rotary Club. The Club only had about 15 people in the room. I gave what I felt was a pretty good presentation, handed out some information at the end of the presentation, and thanked them for their time.  A week later I received a phone call from a member of the club who said she wanted to personally donate two hundred dollars to support our work! I never asked for money in the presentation, I was just there to share with them about what we do in the community. 

On another occasion I was speaking to classes at the local University and I made a presentations to an English class. After the presentation a young freshman girl who seemed a little shy came up to me and said she would like to help. She said he had a truck and would like to help deliver food to families in need. That first year I put her to work, and since then she’s become the one of three main volunteers for A Day of Hope. When you give presentations for the sake of recruiting new members, you truly never know who might be listening and what they might do with as a response to your presentation.
