Hi, I have no words to describe how much I admire your generosity and thank you very much for doing this AMA.

I have been donating blood and I have had a strong urge to do something bigger like you. So, an anonymous donation is something that I've been considering since few months now. However, at the same time a small part of me wonders if I'll regret it in the future.

To be honest, I don't have any second thoughts about it to do it now but I would like to be mentally prepared and know how to deal with future me if in case I have to. I don't know if it makes any sense.

Did you feel this way? or Did you had any second thoughts? In either case, what helped you to sort out your thoughts?

Bro, why do you care about the naming/judging the act as belonging to a category? what are you trying to accomplish by stating that? Even if he posted on reddit for pat on the back, I see no problem with that. It's an act that totally deserves more than that.

He's not meeting his recipient or expecting his recipient to throw him a parade. In fact, by sharing with other people on reddit, he can create awareness and share info with other people who's considering doing it.

At the end of the day, his deed is going to have a net positive impact on this world by alleviating somebody's suffering. In my opinion, that's all that matters.

Ya, I know the BS videos on youtube which earn ad revenue greater than what was spent as 'charity' in the first place.

For the sake of argument, lets say that OP's doing it for karma. I'm not really sure how reddit karma can help you get something tangible like money which you can get with youtube views/subscribers.

Even when somebody asked his name, he refrained from sharing it. He didn't say 'check out my insta/youtube and leave a like, share and subscribe'. Just like his donation even the love and the 'pat on the back' he's receiving is anonymous.

Why worry about something benign?
