Free Money! I want to give you $10

NOTE THIS IS CLOSED! I’M NO LONGER GIVING AWAY FREE MONEY!

Seriously.

Tell me why you need $10 and if I think you’re worthy, I’ll send it to you.  Why? Because it’s Tuesday and every Tuesday this year I’m giving $10 to a worthy cause as part of my #ten4tues project.

Maybe you have a charity that you want to pass the $10 onto. Maybe you want to take your grandma for a cheeseburger.  Maybe you’re saving for a trip to Africa. Maybe you’re my wife and think I shouldn’t just give money to some random person. Whatever the reason, let me know via email kelsey@kelseytimmerman.com, in this comment thread, on Facebook, or on Twitter (@kelseytimmerman).

It’s all about the Alexanders, Baby…

$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!

Ganesh says:

hii i need money please give me 10 dollars . I would be happy if you give that money to me .

Cipto Cahyono says:

Dear Sir,

I’m an unemployed person who is looking for any activity could give money for my live. But sometimes it is so difficult to do so cause I need some small amount money for supporting my activity in searching for job. Please give me 10 dollar, it is needed to pay anything related to my fight to get a job

Ginger says:

I adopted a dog and I’m taking her to vet for the first time so I want to buy a dog seatbelt for her.
I usually sit right next to her on the back seat to make sure she won’t fall from the seat whenever the car stops but if she had a dog seatbelt then she will be safe so if I get a chance to get $10 I want to buy her a dog seatbelt.

kaitlyn says:

Next weekend is easter and I would like $10 to buy my two children easter baskets. I was not able to do it last year and I would really like to see their faces easter morning when I give them their baskets from the “Easter bunny”

Kelsey says:

Ginger, So great of you to adopt a dog. I really wish I could do another $10 this week, but I already gave it away. Hope your doggie gets his seat belt.

Kaitlyn, See my above response to Ginger. However, I probably could do something next Tuesday. I’ll send you an email. I remember getting baskets from the Easter Bunny and would love to help.

Kate says:

I would make a reservation for some of the trips that are offered in http://www.patagonjournal.com to know the Patagonia

i need ten thousand dollors

Gary Woods says:

Dear Kelsey, I believe it is a great ministry to others for you to give them $10. Money really does add up. If I could only find someone to give me $60,000 to pay off my loans that I’m stuck with now that college is over, that would be amazing! It’s a bummer I’m unable to use my degree as I have wished since the economy is low. I attended Bethany Bible College for five years in Sussex, New Brunswick, Canada. I’m originally from Michigan (which is the worst economy in the United States) and have been relocated to New Jersey where I did my internship. I’m currently working at Wal-mart which doesn’t give much pay, therefor I’m living with a family I stayed with during my internship. I have two separate loans to pay off including the cost of a car (1990 Ford Taurus! I pray to God is never breaks down, or I’m a goner), room and board and food. And money needed to take my Woman out! In due time I know things will look up, and it may not be for awhile, but I’ll get there somehow. Well there’s everything in a nutshell. Thought if I was to receive $10 from anyone, midas well give you something worth reading. I really would love to give money away to many people, help my family and friends get out of debt, help the homeless here and over seas. O joy what it would be!

God Bless You!

Sincerely,
Gary Woods, Jr

Tasha says:

Well I know it’s not Tuesday lol, but hey. I don’t know if you’re actually doing this, but if you are, I really could use it because my girlfriend is stranded in Bedford, (about an hour North) and I need the gas money so I can go get her. I’m going bloody crazy without her.

Preeti Singh says:

I’m a student of high school in india who is looking for any activity could give money for my mother’s life. She is very sick and i have no money for her treatment. Her condition is very serious and i have no money to paid doctor for my mother treatment. So, I need some small amount of money for supporting my mother’s life. Please help me with $100. Pls reply me as soon as possible it’s very urgent.

Pamila says:

I am just one of many that can use the money, but I hope you give it to me. I go from pay check to pay check – my kids think MOM means Made Of Money. $10 can help me fill in the gap between paydays.
Thanks either way!

sunny says:

Hi,aim sunny from India.i need money to invest in hi fund program-me.It will be a great help if you pay me money.

wow key says:

If you do not delete my comments,I’ll give you $10.

Anne Davis says:

I am sure there are many people that need the money more than I do, but I could use it for gas for my job search. I have been looking for over a year now, and it is very frustrating when you are taking things back to have gas money for job searching. I would greatly appreciate it if you do pick me and would be willing to pay it back.

Sincerely,
Anne

Paula Willingham says:

I need all of the dollars I can get. I have been laid off since last year. My ex-fiance was responsible for the bills but my lights got turned off. My 16yr old son ( who has a developmental delay had to go live with his father and my 8yr old daughter and I had to come stay with grandma. My bill is 763.00 plus an additional 140.00 deposit to turn service back on. I have been looking for a job everyday even though my body has not fully recovered from the surgery. I just need a little help getting my life back on track. Someone sold me a car and told me I could pay them when I get the money but I can’t even afford to go get it because I can’t pay the insurance or for the tag. I have always been very responsible, but the last year has been terrible for me. I got rid of my fiance for good because any man who can’t take care of his household is Not for me. I’m at my wits end. Please help!

Hezron Obado says:

Am doing Children ministry along lake Victoria in Kenya, this has been successful because most Children are coming to the Lord and finding hope.
Means of transport is not pleasing since we started by walkig to the nearby beaches, but now we have to go beyound and we need either motor bike or vehicle that can take us so that we can minister to these children who are suffering from: rejection, HIV/Aids and other problems in effective way.
Please you can come and see all these by yourselves…

thakur manohar singh says:

Hello, My name is thakur manohar singh form indai i need some money 1000 dollars home borplam money soon because

I’m a pretty straight forward kinda guy. I’m always looking for the next little scheme. However, I like what you’re doing here. No tricks. No scams. Just cash. I like cash, which is actually going to be my reasoning to you on why I think you should give it to me this week. I like cash a lot. I like what you’re doing so much mainly because there is a chance of me getting more of that cash that i oh-so adore. Cash cash cash… It just sounds cool. I don’t have anything remotely resembling a sob story. So I can’t really go down the pity road. I can tell you this though, I’m going on a road trip in a few weeks and I’m attempting to save as much ca$h as I can. $10 would certainly help. If not this week I’ll be around ALL of next week too… and the one after that… and the following one. I like my odds.

Zarria Porter says:

Mandy says:

Ten dollars would be a great start for my trip back home. I’ve been living stateside here for two years now, raising my late mother’s children- and I haven’t seen my own father or brothers since then. I’m trying to finance a trip in January ’11 to fly home to Australia for two weeks to see them. (It’s the only time work will give me off) But with household expenses being so tight- there just isn’t money. And even if I can’t make my trip (ten dollars is awesome but it’s not going to fund the whole trip) I’ll use the $10 to mail them a card or tiny package. Cheers.

Anatha says:

It would help me invest in my student leadership program called students of Destiny. We connect youth with their dreams.

Jason says:

If you’ve really given out $10 every Tuesday, you are a very noble man. Whether it was to a very needy person or just to the funniest poster of the week I have a lot of respect for what you are doing. I am a 2 time Iraq war Veteran who’s run into a rather annoying streak of bad luck in the last couple of years. The only 2 really good things in my life have been Alcoholics Anonymous and my Girlfriend (who right now lives 1600 miles away). If you were gracious enough to give me ten bucks I would most definitely put it back in hopes of being $10 closer to may 1600 mile move.
Thanks

Christy says:

If you give me $10 I will probably put it in my worldwinner account and play .99 tournaments of Dynomite because it is so addictive!

Christy says:

or use it for advertising in one of my many online attempts…lol…click on my name and buy one of my Twanger shirts with the $10!…ok well that will cost a little more than $10 but hey it’s worth it, Twanger rocks!

Tori says:

Okay, I’m desperate…but it goes a little deeper than that. I’m an aspiring actress/screenwriter/humanitarian (big dreams, right?), and right now I work at an ice-cream store [: I just recently got another job which I’m so happy for, and meanwhile I’m going to school full-time. So here’s my dilemma: I’m also in an internship with America’s leading acting and model search, where I’ll possibly land a job in the next few months. The thing is, I just got my second job, and I don’t get paid from either job until next week. I’ve been scrounging pennies together (I actually took a hundred of them to the gas station) just to get enough gas to make it to my internship. My parents are trying to make ends meet, and I’m making myself succeed, but it’s hard when I’m driving so much. If you would be kind enough to give me $10, I’d probably cry…then thank you a million times…then tell everyone about how you were generous to actually help me reach my goal. So…that’s about all. Even if I don’t get it, thanks for letting me try [:
