Things I Love

I thought I would take today and write a list of things I love. You see we often run around and do not sit down to reflect on everything we have been given. We hope and dream for more when most likely everything we need is right in front of us. I hope that you will share what you love in the comment section and that you will take your list or mine when you are feeling down and remind yourself that it will pass and there is more to be grateful for than not. This list is not in any order I just took five minutes to be thankful.

$100 Story Paying it forward

I know that as I sit here in my house with my family asleep upstairs that I am grateful. I am grateful each day that I am in a position to help. It wasn’t long ago that I taught school. I gave up teaching and stayed home to raise my children. This site began as a way to teach people and help people.

It has helped me and I believe in paying it forward. I am a person that believes we each have the power to do something to help others. You can see how this whole $100 story started in my $100 Story post. The short story is my husband gave me $100 to spend on myself and instead I bought people children’s gifts that I didn’t know. It became an awesome example of paying it forward and love. I am at it again. I think that sometimes things happen for a reason and this is what I was meant to do.

Paying it Forward

This is how you can help. You can visit my site often. You can share my site with your friends and family. If you do those things then more companies will be willing to donate to my $100 story. I mean who wanted want to be part of helping others. The best part of the $100 story is knowing somewhere I helped make a difference.

Keep entering I have more dreams to deliver.

Sincerely,

Amee AKA Madame Deals

Paying it Forward one $100 Story at a time

If you have followed by blog there are two things you should know. I blog to have a place to be myself and share. I am an over “sharer” by nature. I also want to figure out a way to use my skill set as an entrepreneur to help others. It is very important to me to do more for others. I am sure we all have the desire to help others but we often think well I do not have anything to offer. The truth is we each have the ability to help others the only question is how to get started. The answer is come up with an idea and implement it. I think in life we have things that happen to us and they are signs. This happened last year to me in $100 increments. You should read my $100 story so you can catch up.

Paying it forward

I recently attended a conference where OXO was a sponsor. They were willing to double any donation that was made by donating for a raffle ticket. I believe in fate. I had a job come in for $100 so I decided to donate that and match it from my personal account. The reason is simple. I can’t image not helping when I am in a place that I can contribute. I also watched this video and it reminded me that if everyone takes a minute to do something for someone else then that is what defines them. It isn’t what we own it is who we are that counts. I hope you take a minute to watch this video and bake to help. I will post what I bake later but I am sure it will be amazing because with every bite it could help save a life!
