Sacrifices made

One sacrifice Scrooge had to make was his cash inflow, he chose to give a lot of money away to people who need money more than him. That was hard for him because he was attached to his money, and he thought the only thing important enough to care about. An example of me sacrificing something is in baseball getting in front of the ground ball and stop it for the good of the team.
