A local United Way office realized that it had never received a donation
from the town's most successful lawyer. The person in charge of
contributions called him to persuade him to contribute. 

"Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least $500,000, you
give not a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give back to the community
in some way?" 

The lawyer mulled this over for a moment and replied, "First, did your
research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has
medical bills that are several times her annual income?"

Embarrassed, the United Way rep mumbled, "" "-or that my brother, a
disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?" The stricken
United Way rep began to stammer out an apology but was interrupted, "-or
that my sister's husband died in a traffic accident," 

the lawyer's voice rising in indignation, "leaving her penniless with three
children?" The humiliated United Way rep, completely beaten, said simply, "I
had no idea..." On a roll, the lawyer cut him off once again:

"-so if I don't give any money to them, why should I give any to you?"
