Charity

“Would you like to donate to breast cancer?” the lady at the mall asked Jim as he walked through the doors.

“Would I like to? Like? Is that what charity is about? Am I giving because it’s about me and what I like? If I’m giving to satisfy myself above all else, would any ethical system even consider that to be charity? Did the mall just set up this booth here so that I would have positive feelings associated with coming here and opening my wallet? Are they fighting breast cancer just because that’s what all the cool corporations do?”
