I believe with every good deed a life is changed. I started the $100 story to show people that the impact of $100 can actually change people’s lives for the better. The $100 story started a couple of years ago. You can read about it here in my Madame Deals $100 Story.
This is where we are for this year so far. I start with $100. I received this request in my email on facebook.
I was writing to ask you for your help. If you’re able to help, if not it’s okay. We’re trying to help a family with Christmas but we don’t even have much money ourselves. There is a family with 3 little girls, there ages ranges from 16 months, 2 years, and 6 years. Their mommy was tragically killed a few months ago by a drunk driver, she was pregnant at the time. The father of the girls is trying his best, he works construction so money is very tight. Her family is fighting him for custody and its a big mess. Anything would help. We’re trying to get them some toys together and we have a Santa lined up to help us deliver them. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
and I responded… I sent three gifts one for each little girl amount spent $35 still left $65
and this happened as a result of sharing my donation…
Hi I wanted to help with the Christmas gifts. Do you have any other information about the family other than their ages? Do they require toys to be new in box? Thank you. I know how hard it can be and when my family can help we really try to reach out.
I am writing about the 3 little girls in need of Christmas gifts. I have a few things for them already (and plan to get a few more)…Where do I send them to? Do you have additional info such as their likes, sizes, names, etc? Thank you for all the wonderful things you do for all of us!!
PS If you would like to pass this message on to the fan who originally posted the request, that is fine by me!
…. I would like to give one of you the opportunity to help someone as well…
