Leave The Change For Hawkers Campaign

#Leave the change for hawkers campaign Beloved! While in public transport today, a woman on my row started begging people for financial assistance. The man sitting directly in front of me dug his hand in his wallet and gave her N500, then others followed, she eventually got over a thousand naira within that short period. Not long after that, the same man that gave this woman N500 then wanted to buy bottled water, and the hawker had to run to catch up with us because the man wanted to give him N100 and he had to collect his N50 change first before handing him the N100. The scenario touched me! Immediately, I requested a bottle too and gave the guy 200! A woman beside me shouted...Ahh, let him give you your change first before giving him money���!! She looked at me as if I'm a "mutual", a new person in Lagos wey dem never show�. As the guy was struggling to run and give me a chance, I bade him goodbye not to worry! The most touching part of the story is, even when I thought we've left this guy far behind as the traffic had moved, he ran to still catch up with the bus and prayed wholeheartedly in a show of appreciation! You know why?? He knows the value of that money, he knows how much bottle or sachet of water he would sell running from bus to cars before getting that. The woman who saw me as mutual eventually went speechless! Lesson passed on the bus! Simple�� We all feel comfortable giving beggars big money but find it difficult to leave small changes for genuine hustlers. We unconsciously encourage begging at the expense of those who work so hard, that's why you see corporate beggers increasing daily on the streets of Nigeria Pls, I want to use this opportunity to start a #LeaveTheChangeForHawkers campaign. If you share my sentiment, pls share this post and spread love and encouragement for the street hustlers. Please, next time you buy something inside traffic or anywhere from these street hawkers, leave the change if you have more in your pocket, Appreciate those in Labour.
