Denzel Washington's Humanitarian Generosity To Brook Army Medical Centre in San Antonio Texas

My definition of wealth or being wealthy is when you are able to touch the lives of those in need. A lot of people who are blessed take for granted that, giving is an important part of living. You make a lot of money and one day u die, what happens to all your wealth? Your Billions and Zillions are not buried with you. But your generosity lies in your soul and the souls and lives of those you have blessed and touched.

Denzel Washington and his family visited the troops at Brook Army Medical Centre, in San Antonio , Texas, (BAMC) the other day. This is where soldiers who have been evacuated from Germany come to be hospitalized in the United States, especially burn victims. There are some buildings there called Fisher Houses. The Fisher House is a Hotel where soldiers' families can stay, for little or no charge, while their soldier is staying in the Hospital. BAMC has quite a few of these houses on base, but as you can imagine, they are almost filled most of the time.
While Denzel Washington was visiting BAMC, they gave him a tour of one of the Fisher Houses. He asked how much one of them would cost to build. He took his check book out and wrote a check for the full amount right there on the spot.
The soldiers overseas were amazed to hear this story and want to get the word out to the American public, because it warmed their hearts to hear it. Thanks Denzel, God bless you more
