If you’re looking for some inspiration and a good will story you have to check out the NYC homeless man who turned down $100 from a software programmer. 

Patrick McConlogue walks passed homeless people everyday on his way to work to perform software programming for a startup business.  McConlogue attention was caught by a particular homeless man who is always reading and writing.

One morning while heading to work, the programmer offered Leo, 36 years old, either $100 or a laptop with Javascript coding books and two months of coding classes from the generous programmer.

Well, Leo turned the $100 down and took the second option of learning the coding world.  The coding expert started a blog to tell the story and received criticism.  But who cares, this homeless guy has a chance to learn for free and make a living for himself.

I am glad the homeless man didn’t take the $100.  The saying is true, give a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day. Teach a man how to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.  Do you think the offer from McConlogue was the correct or should he have given more?  Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
