Comments

From Jerry Edwards : Donald is very discouraged due to his lack of success in collecting for the Community Chest charity. A kindly ditchdigger bucks up Donald's spirits by contributing and giving testimony on how the Community Chest had helped him and his family. A "short short" - only about 2 1/2 minutes long, but well animated.
From Ryan : A Donald Duck short made for the Community Chest. Donald is having a lot of trouble collecting for the Community Chest, but gets a donation from a sympathetic ditchdigger. Not really a comedy cartoon, but contains great animation.
From Baruch Weiss : Truly a short short, but well done nevertheless and it teaches an important lesson to give charity. Just because we work all our life to get money does not mean we can keep it all ourselves, we all must help and give some away.
