In 1995 the nation was stunned when news broke that an elderly woman named Oseola McCarty had donated $150,000 to the University of Southern Mississippi for their scholarship fund.

This 87 yr old woman had been forced to drop out of school in the 6th grade to care for her family. For more than 60 yrs she made a living washing clothes for hire in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, saving as much as she could from her meager pay.

She wanted others to have the opportunity for the education she never received, so she gave away the money she had saved for so many years.

Rather than waiting until you have enough to give, be generous & give what you have to help others today.

- Robert T. Grimm (

Mar 12:43-44 (GW): Jesus called his disciples and said to them, "I can guarantee this truth: This poor widow has given more than all the others. All of them have given what they could spare. But she, in her poverty, has given everything she had to live on."

"Giving is true having."  -  Charles Spurgeon.
