Free Money update…

Wow! This week’s #ten4tues has been amazing.

Who knew that offering free money would introduce me to so many worthy causes supported by new friends and old? This is definitely something I’ll replicate in the future.

The tough part was choosing who to give the money to. Here were my top selections:

1)Kristi Scott is going to Trujillo, Peru to work at an orphanage. She writes that “the orphanage houses about 40 Peruvian children from various backgrounds including abuse, neglect, and extreme poverty.”

My thoughts: I spent a week at an orphanage in Guatemala and the experience has never left me. Giving to Kristi is a two-birds-with-one-stone kind of thing. It exposes orphans to a talented and passionate young woman. And it exposes a talented and passionate young woman to an experience that will likely shape the rest of her life.

2) Michelle wants me to give her $10 bucks so she can take it to the Fallston Animal Rescue Movement. Michelle writes, “They rescue dogs that have to be put down at other shelters because they need to be nursed back to health or need some behavioral training. The dogs stay with foster families until they are well, and then they are adopted out. There are 15 people involved (not counting the foster families), and they are all volunteers. Their main cost is vet bills; last year’s total was $80,000.”

My thoughts: I was raised by dogs. Sort of. And while I call myself a dog lover, I don’t really do enough to support less fortunate ones. I follow @aplacetobark on Twitter and that’s about it. Giving ten bucks to Michelle would allow her to support a cause that should be more important to me. Also, it’s my understanding that the family that runs the shelter makes up gaps in funding out of their own pocket. That’s passion that deserves support.

3. Virginia, a superhero librarian, wrote, “ $10 will purchase two books to give to high school ninth graders who may have never owned a book before–the program, started by our Friends of the Library group is popular with the kids, many who haven’t come to the library before–but soon realize we are here to help–we have free materials they can borrow–and there are computers!”

My thoughts: Where would I be without books and without libraries. I’ve written about this before. I’ve had the pleasure of visiting multiple libraries around the country since my book came out, and I’m a huge fan. The experience has completely changed the way I see librarians. They are lovers of knowledge and a great resource, but they are also quasi-social workers at the front lines of fighting poverty through education and literacy (including computer literacy).

4. James is going back to Liberia where he’ll assist at a medical clinic and more importantly return as a reinvigorated supporter of the Liberan people’s recovery from a decade long civil war.

My thoughts: James is a great guy that I’ve gotten to know over the last year. He gives to the Muncie community in so many important ways. A few hours ago, we were at lunch discussing our upcoming trips to Africa and I could hear how important this trip was to James.

All of these projects are worthy of my $10. I hope that someone will step forward after reading the above and give to them. If you do, please report back. Unfortunately I can barely afford to give $10 to one group per week. I believe someone once said, “I only regret that I have but one $10 bill to give …”

That said, I chose James for the following reasons: his Facebook post inspired the “Free Money” idea and I could take a photo of him with my $10.

I hope to support the other individuals in upcoming Tuesdays and shine more light on the great work they are doing.

James

i want money so please help me

Am a student of Tamale Polytechnic in Ghana. I lost my father at an early age of 2 years.My educational responsibility to this level is the effort of my brother.At this level of my education i needed a laptop computer for my studies but unfortunatelly on my part my brother who is the care taker of my fees has no means to help me.Payment of my school fees is a story to tell. I therefore needed your support to help me acquire this laptop. Thanks for your support.

LaulaniH says:

You know, I have been surfing the net for more than 24hrs, trying to find ways to bring in some income. But you know what…. after reading some of the replies you received, my life is sunshine and roses… and here I was preparing myself to use my body…

Kelsey says:

I’m glad you got some use out of the stories folks have shared. I was just writing a silly post to connect with some people and then all of these amazing heartfelt stories overwhelmed the comments. Hope you are doing better. Good luck!

Carla M says:

I work full time as a veterinary receptionist at a small practice which cannot afford health insurance. I am 51, divorced, and live alone and have no family here in San Antonio. I am very lucky – I have a job I love and the best dog ever. However, this past week I developed some hypertension issues which caused me to go see the doc for treatment. My last pay check (the first of the month one) covered rent and very little else when you factor in medication and doctor visits that you had not anticipated. I am fine with food – yay rice, beans,and ramen noodles – and my dog Annie has her doggie food.I get paid next Wednesday and just need a few dollars for gas money so I can get to work. I have $2.12 in my checking account so I am kind of in a bind. I make $10.00 an hour so you can see I budget carefully. I drive a ford focus which gets awesome milage but still needs gas to go. I’ve looked at taking the bus but it would cost as much given the hours I work. Whatever you decide, I want you to know I think you are doing a great thing helping those in need. We need more good guys like you.

Tigran says:

Hello, good people. I’m in trouble. Four years ago I helped one person who needed an immediate operation. He helped him with money, took a loan at his own expense. After the operation, this person lived for a year and a half, the loan remained hanging on me. It’s time to return the debt. All that I could have sold, but not enough money. I keep the family. I was in a very difficult situation. There is a real threat of staying on the street with the family. Help me please pay off my debt. I will be grateful for any financial support. ABSOLUTELY ANY.
