What a nice thread!
I'll share a story about my friend and her co-workers. My friend, "L" works in a county school. It is an "alternative" school for "problem" kids. They are kids that have been suspended from their home schools. There are a multitude of behavioral issues - drug, alcohol, sex. For many of the kids, there is no support system at home.
One boy stood out. He was in desperate need of clothing. He was an extra tall, extra large boy. The staff pooled their money and bought him appropriate clothing. Not wanting to embarrass him, they called him to the office and told him there had been a drawing for a prize. His name was drawn and he won.
