We went to Paws to donate the money yesterday. With my friends' money and the money that was supposed to be used by my parents to buy a birthday cake, I had RM200 -- not small, not big (considering the number of animals they house), but significant enough. I explained to the man how I obtained all that money, and he shook my hand and wished me a happy birthday. (:
You know the funny thing? I told my parents I didn't want a cake, to put the money they would've used for the cake into the Paws fund my friends were starting. I figured I didn't need a cake. In the end, I got three cakes on my birthday -- one Chocolate Indulgence from Secret Recipe, one huge order of brownies from the same, and one chocolate cake from Timothy and his mom. Funny the way things work out, isn't it?
There's something in the Bible about God helping you when you help others. That was a manifestation of that, I suppose. It's a nice feeling. (:
