Four people chosen to receive $100 each - for groceries, gas, summer clothes and savings

I am mailing out four gifts to folks today. I'm trying to spread things around as best as I can, and decided that I'd like to give out four $100 gifts this morning instead of just one large one.

To Mike - $100 for your weekly grocery bill for your family. I've seen food prices and I agree with you that they're through the roof. You may not be able to support a family of four for $100 a week. But this will at least get you part way there.

Lisa - Four dollar a gallon gas stinks. But $100 will get you 25 gallons, which should help you get to and from where you're going for the next week or two. Maybe longer if you're frugal with trips.

Lana - I love your name! And yes, I'm happy to share a little bit with you to buy some summer clothes for the kids. I don't have any of my own. But I know they grow fast and keeping them in new clothing is a challenge. Wal-Mart and other large retailers offer some very affordable clothing and shoe options. Don't overlook the thrift store either. You can get nearly new jeans, pants, shorts and t-shirts for pennies there.

Tyron - I love your name too :-) Put this money to good use in your 401k / IRA.

Thanks, as always, to everyone who writes to me and reads this site and blog. I always try to promise more frequent updates and I know that I don't update you often enough. But rest assured I'm still here and will be back soon enough with more good news.

You would think it's easy to give away gift cards, but it's not. I've only been able to give away a few on my site. People are so skeptical about registering because they think it's a scam. Oh, well.

I think its great what you are doing.... i have sent in my request to you... i hope you choose me....but if not... i hope God blesses you with more money so you can help more people...

I don't know if this is real or not....but i thought i'd take a chance...don't want to tell you any sob stories but i am in need of $1500 to pay rent... the rent is not my home or anything like that....i started a program that helps homeless people get clothing for work, kids school, interviews, court etc...
while we are helping a lot of people, and getting a lot of clothing donations...we are not getting much financial donations....
it is my fault that i am a failure at this business... i should have waited until i had enough money to cover the rent for at least 1 year....but i really wanted to help... we are located in a mall...and do have money coming in...but to be honest.. i ended up giving away more in the last 2 months...
you can send the money directly to the Mall where our store is located... it is not for me...
i don't want to close my store... i am a single mother of 5, 3 with disabilities and i know how hard it is out there... i struggle... but i feel grateful when i am able to help others..
this is a newspaper article done on my program...

and my website is
www.itsmytyme.org
unfortunately times are hard for everyone...and people just are not donating anymore.... i appreciate your taking the time to read my letter
if 1500 is too much to ask...any amount would help and we could give you a tax letter....

Thanks for being so wonderful... I have been following you for some time and have put in a few of my own request, even though I haven't been picked I still watch your page. God grants us what we need, whether it's of our own hand or coming from the kindness of another we are all taken care of. Thank you again

What a wonderful thing you are doing, there are not many who pay it forward. Someday you will be in need in some way or another and I truly hope you reach out to those you have helped or who write in. Even if it's just for encouragement in your day.

The world needs more stories of the hope you inspire. God bless your generosity. This is news worth reporting. Thank you for listening.
