Confessions By Stranger #46: Heart of Gold

I own a medium sized drainage company in **Place removed**. I've got a young bloke who works for me as a labourer. He's first onsite every day and works his ass off consistently. I found out through one of my Foreman that he's been having a rough time trying to sort a decent Christmas for his kids and he hardly spends enough time with them. Also hes been selling some of his tools to make ends meet.

I've felt terrible for him. Last week I gave him an envelope with a letter stating he must take 4 weeks paid leave and $1500 cash. He called me crying on the phone later that night thanking me. It feels good to give back and ensure some kids have a great holiday. More people need to do it.
