The Salvation Army V successful banker

The Salvation Army realized that they had never received a donation from the city's most successful banker.
So a Salvation Army volunteer paid the banker a visit in his lavish office.

The volunteer opened the meeting by saying, "Our research shows that even though your annual income is over five million pounds, you don't give a penny to charity. Wouldn't you like to give something back to your community through the Salvation Army?"

The banker thinks for a minute and says, "First, did your research also show you that my mother is dying after a long, painful illness and she has huge medical bills that are far beyond her ability to pay?" Embarrassed, the Salvation Army rep mumbles, "Uh... No, I didn't know that."

"Secondly," says the banker, "did it show that my brother, a disabled veteran, is blind and confined to a wheelchair and is unable to support his wife and six children?"
The stricken Salvation Army rep begins to stammer an apology, but is cut off again.

"Thirdly, did your research also show you that my sister's husband died in dreadful car accident, leaving her penniless with a mortgage and three children, one of whom is disabled and another that has learning disabilities requiring an array of private tutors?"

The humiliated Salvation Army rep, completely beaten, says, "I'm so sorry, I had no idea."
And the banker says,

"So . . . If I didn't give any money to them, what makes you think I'd give any to you?"
