A Lesson for Cynical People Like Me

From yesterday's edition of my daily job-listings e-mail from the Idealist:

"A 'really rotten day' at work prompted a Toronto police officer to e-mail a spontaneous plea to Bill Gates for technological help fighting child pornography. The officer, who couldn’t have imagined that Gates would actually read his hastily dashed off missive, was shocked when Gates responded promptly and generously. Relatively low profile actions like this one strongly suggest that the charitable activities of the world’s richest man aren’t simply part of a public relations ploy."

Here is the story.

It's about time I put something positive on my blog, huh?
