Birthday money for Emily from Ohio

I met Emily (from Ohio) via an email, as I meet so many of you too. She was 18, unemployed and was feeling bad that she was about to turn 19 without any means to celebrate her birthday.

Although a birthday celebration is somewhat trivial, sometimes it feels right to help someone with something small - a kindness that may not change their world but might brighten their day.

In addition to giving Emily $100 to take a friend out to lunch and have some left over to simply spend on herself, I encouraged her to seek some form of employment, even if it was part time work.

Do you have a request for assistance? If so, I'm still here to help, even though my posts have grown a little less frequent as my career consumes a larger portion of my time. Just because I don't post doesn't mean I'm not doing what I can to help.

Also consider liking this site's Facebook page. It really has helped get the word out. Remember though, I don't accept requests for free money on Facebook. Those requests must still come through this web site.

Thanks everyone. Talk to you again soon.

I think what you're doing is absolutely incredible! I never would have guessed that there would actually be someone like you out there as I aimlessly typed in the search engine. What a great idea, and great way to give back. See, you don't limit your kindness and generosity to just one or two cause(s). You give your requestees (sp?) The opportunity to EXPLAIN their hardship and to me, that is so cool! I'm truly inspired and sad to say, I haven't said that much lately. Keep up the extraordinary work!
