The phone rang Monday Morning.
“Hi, this is Tamar with infolinks and we’d like to honor women by giving $1,000 to the charity of your choice.”
“Um, okay, can it pay my daughter’s school tuition?”
“Sorry, it can’t.”
“Could I withhold just $300 so I can get a Brazillian Blowout? You should see my hair today, I look like a charity case.”
“Unfortunately we would need to give money to a 501c charity that benefits women.”
“How long does it take to get that paperwork done?” I wondered aloud while twirling my dried out hair.
“I’m really sorry Jessica, is this a bad time?”
“Oh no, I’m so sorry. Well, I guess if my daughter’s tuition and my hair can’t be considered women’s charities we should probably give some dough to the Dream Center. They’ve got a brand new residential facility for trafficked girls.”
“Oh I love that. I mean I hate that we need that, but I love that they have it.” Tamar said.
And we worked out the details, and the Dream Center will be getting a check for a thousand dollars this week, because helping women do more than their hair matters.
