first request?

I’d gifted everyone in my office with a bottle of my homemade elderberry syrup back in the fall. A co-worker asks me if I will sell him some more. It’s helping his wife’s cough.

I don’t want him to pay me for it.

Question: Is this giving when directly asked? He didn’t ask for a gift, even though that’s the only way I’m comfortable offering it.

Question: Does this count *less* as giving because maybe *he* would rather pay for it?

  1. Idea: Pay it forward – What would your colleague be willing to pay for a jar of syrup? Whatever that amount is, have him donate that amount. This way it is a double mitzvah.
