I donated money this week to Samaritan’s Purse. I gave to several projects. But this one grabbed me: wheelchairs. For $75, you can give a wheelchair.
Think of the immediate effect of a wheelchair. Someone is crawling. How far can he crawl? What is his geography of service?
Now he has a wheelchair. How far can he roll? A lot farther.
First, a wheelchair expands a person’s geography of service. He will be more likely to find a job. He will be more likely to support himself and his family. More bang for your buck.
Second, it helps a specific person, which means greater accountability. He feels that pressure. He may produce. Less risk of wasting your money. More bang for your buck.
Third, it is long-term capital. It will keep producing results. More bang for your buck.
Fourth, others are helped by the victim. Service is always a benefit to others. So, there is leverage here. A wheelchair expands benefits beyond the crippled person’s family. More bang for your buck.
Fifth, a wheelchair is appreciated daily. It is a gift that keeps on giving. More bang for your buck.
Sixth, they are cheap. So, the payoff is high: more bang for your buck.
Seventh, someone so poor that he cannot afford a wheelchair is in desperate shape. The wheelchair puts him in a far better condition. More bang for your buck.
