Joke : Who is rich and doesn’t donate for charity?

The staff at a local Penang Charity office realized that it had never received a donation from the town’s most successful lawyer, Karpal Singh.

The person in charge of contributions called him to persuade him to contribute. “Our research shows that out of a yearly income of at least RM500,000, you give not a penny to charity. Wouldn’t you like to give back to the community in some way?”

Karpal Singh mulled this over for a moment and replied, “First, did your
research also show that my mother is dying after a long illness, and has
medical bills that are several times her annual income?”

Embarrassed, the Penang Charity representative mumbled, “Um… No.”

“Or,” Karpal continued, “that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair?”

The stricken Penang Charity representative began to stammer out an apology but was interrupted when Karpal added, “Or that my sister’s husband died in a traffic accident?” Karpal’s voice rising in indignation, “Leaving her pennyless with three children?”

The humiliated Penang Charity representative, completely beaten, said
simply, “I had no idea…”

On a roll, Karpal cut him off once again, “So if I don’t give any money to them, why should I give any to you?”
