Description

If you had more money than time, more millions than you knew how to spend, what would be your pet philanthropy? Libraries? Hospitals? Churches? Homes for the Blind, Crippled or Aged? Mine would be "Homes" -- but not for the aged or infirm. For young married couples! I have often thought that, if ever I got into the "Philanthropic Billionaire" class, I'd like to start an Endowment Fund for helping young married couples over the rough spots in those first and second years of married life -- especially the second year, when the real troubles come. Take a boy and a girl and a cozy little nest -- add a cunning, healthy baby -- and there's nothing happier on God's green footstool. But instead of a healthy babe, fill in a fretful, sickly baby -- a wan, tired, worn-out little mother -- a worried, dejected, heart-sick father -- and there's nothing more pitiful. A nurse for a month, a few weeks at the shore or mountains, a "lift" on that heavy Doctor's bill -- any one of these things would spell H-E-A-V-E-N to that tiny family. But do they get it? Not often! And the reason? Because they are not poor enough for charity. They are not rich enough to afford it themselves. They belong to that great "Middle Class" which has to bear the burdens of both the poor and the rich -- and take what is left for itself.
