“Giving is the best form of communication” (Thai tearjerking commercial)

I dare you to watch this and to not cry 10 seconds in.

I am totally blaming these waterworks on the baby by the way.

Thanks to AF for the link.

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

      Definitely not office-appropriate! I was bawling.

    I heard about this on the radio on the way to work today, interestingly! I haven’t watched the video but listening the guy talk about it already brought tears to my eyes. We definitely need more kindness to go around in the world!

      Watch it in the privacy of your own home. YOU WILL BAWL like a baby.

    I’ve actually heard a similar story! But it was food and a glass of milk instead of painkillers and veggie soup. But yeah… excellent commercial

    Just saw that yesterday. Great commercial. Have you seen Dream Rangers? Now THAT’s a tearjerker. I was bawlin’ by the end of it.

      I’ll save that one for tomorrow because I cried enough today.

    I saw this on Facebook yesterday, and I found it so beautiful! I wish I had pregnancy hormones to blame the teariness on.
