The Portly Gentlemen
Greetings, good sir/madam! We are the portly gentlemen, on a mission to spread goodwill and generosity throughout the city.
Our business is charity, and we seek donations to aid the less fortunate during this season of giving. We understand that times are tough, but we also believe that even the smallest contribution can make a difference in someone’s life.
We do not ask for pity or sympathy, only for the kindness and compassion that we know exists in the hearts of good people. Our goal is to make the world a better place, one act of generosity at a time.
We may be portly in stature, but our hearts are filled with a desire to help others. We invite you to join us in this noble cause, to spread the spirit of Christmas throughout the land. Together, we can make a difference in the world and bring hope to those who need it most.
