There was, however, recourse to powerful ammunition: The disarming charm and persuasion skills of two feisty little girls, from a building next door.Selling as many hand-made papery, glittery, sticky things as possible for charity.With no armor to protect me against the lethal combination of rosy, chubby-cheeked cuteness and Warren Buffet negotiation skills, the girls simply giggled and made a killing.It helps people survive precarious circumstances and weather this very beautiful, but very dysfunctional country's magnetic attraction to problems."No" is certainly not a word charity workers can afford to accept this Ramadan.In a climate of economic hardship and political uncertainty, the needy are growing in numbers and getting needier.The more inventive the approach, the more likely it is to convert a "no" into a "yes" and guilt into community engagement.
