This video is pretty funny. Matt Damon demonstrates for us how difficult it is for those who are trying to learn what it means to give our best for the poor. I love how celebrity holds no status for kids! They are really not interested in it! My personal favorite is when the kids says he knows who Ben Affleck is. A close second is when the little girl is faced with the choice between a plain water bottle, or a water bottle signed by Matt Damon & she chooses the plain water bottle. Just for the record, if I were in the desert… I would not pick Justin Bieber. Under no circumstances… I hope you are finding a way to invest in those who are poor, or on the margins of our culture this time of year!
Matt Damon as Santa Claus… sort of
