Thanks to kind strangers

-A A +A

A truly wonderful thing happened.  As you may know, we are doing a fundraiser for the Middle School library called Books4Hawks:
(http://www.funds4books.com/fundraiser.aspx?pincode=80ca).  
An older lady must have seen the information about this in the Los Alamos Monitor, and she came all the way to the Los Alamos Middle School and anonymously donated a $100 bill.
She gave it to our receptionist, Claire Swinhoe, and made her getaway before I could thank her. Claire does not know who the lady was, but says she was an older woman probably past retirement age.  
This is such wonderful generosity!
This lady — I’m guessing here — is probably already retired. She may have driven to the bank to get the cash and then driven out to the Los Alamos Middle School and walked up to our front office, all in order to make her donation to our cause.  
I wish I knew who she is so that I could give her a hug.  
As Blanche says in Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire, “I have always relied upon the kindness of strangers...”
