$500 to a couple from Phoenix

I've gotten several emails lately asking why I haven't updated this blog or given away any money lately. I figured it's easier to answer all of those questions here, rather than sending out a couple dozen emails saying essentially the same thing.

There are times when I simply don't get around to posting. That doesn't mean that I'm not reading your replies, responding when I can, or giving away money to those who want it and need. It just means that sometimes I'm a little lazy and don't post for a few weeks at a time.

Also, there are some people who write and ask for money, but specifically ask me not to post their details in the blog so that they can remain anonymous. I usually only use first names and your nearest major city (i.e. John Doe from Mayfield, Michigan may actually be called John from Traverse City on this site). But there are times when people ask that I don't even post that much info and I try to respect their request.

Such is the case today. A couple from Arizona will receive $500 to cover part of their house payment this month. Money was tight and they've written 3 times over the last four months requesting a grant of free money. I will refer to them as "a couple from Phoenix" even though they do not live in the city of Phoenix itself.

Nonetheless, I hope this money will go a long way toward helping them out.

As always, I appreciate and welcome your emails and requests, comments and questions. I can't respond to every message I get. But I will do my best to communicate with as many of my friends out there as possible.

And also remember that even though I don't post here every day, I still believe in my mission and still do my best to help those that I can.

Have a wonderful day!

Scott, when you get a chance please delete two of the three comments I left on January 11, 2010. They all say the same thing. Thanks

I'm just glad to see that you're still posting to your blog. I only discovered your blog this month and have been reading through all of your blog posts because this has got to be the most unique blog that I have ever seen!

God Bless you for what you are doing!

Thanks Martina. Yes, I hope to keep this site running for a long time to come. I appreciate your encouragement and kind words.

Glad to see you posting again and I oh so hope that you saw my request! I am keeping my fingers crossed - I am running out of time....but still thank you for this blog and for what you are doing.

Scott, please ignore my multiple requests. Aside from my initial request, I was unaware that contacting you for updates would be ignored via the request submission. I just wanted to ease your mind and let you know how our situation is improving. We're slowly but surely trying to make our wedding a reality. Thank you, and again I am truly sorry I had no idea. - Melanie

wonderful that you will respect peoples wishes for privacy. as for me if you are able to help me with my request you can put my info up in neon lights for all i care lol...i would gladly tell everyone what you are doing to help so many people. i have always said if i had money like that i would do the same thing. there is nothing more fulfilling than seeing smiles and/or tears of joy from someone who has been blessed in their time of need. GOD WILL BLESS YOU FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING MY FRIEND!!

Today I've discovered a new way to bring on a peaceful feeling that doesn't require (alot) money to feel. Picked up an old copy of Carol Kings "Music" album at a yard sale for a buck, popped it on the turntable & read thru this blog. Suddenly the world doesn't seem so cold..
The simplest things really can help make it to another day & leave you smiling & warm inside. : )
