Want to help someone?

May 8, 2007 at 10:39 pm 1 comment

My friends have started a really great new not-for-profit organization. It’s called Giving Anonymously. How many times have you wanted to send a brother, sister, parent or friend a little money to help them out, but you just knew they wouldn’t accept money from you. Too often pride and worries of feeling beholden can get in the way of accepting help in the form of money from friends and family. But now there is a very easy way to prevent this from being a problem. With Giving Anonymously, you can simply go to the site, enter the recipient’s information and the amount you want to send. Then you can pay by credit card. Giving Anonymously, will physically write a check from Giving Anonymously and send it the recipient with a nice letter saying that someone cares and wants to help. But the recipient never knows who sent them money. The letter they receive contains an option for the recipient to call the Giving Anonymously voice mail system and leave a thank you message, which will be emailed to the sender as an mp3 file, keeping the gift totally anonymous.

  • Uhh.. What are you doing? July 4, 2006
    So I was staying with a friend when the family and I went to SoCal on a trip. My friends were gracious enough to let us stay in their bed while they slept on the couch. One night around 2 or so, my buddy got up and had to go to the bathroom. Forgetting that he had let us stay in their bedroom, he came waltzing back into their bedroom. (No, we weren’t “in the […]

  • My son’s friend’s feet stink! July 3, 2006
    So I was staying overnight with the parent’s of a friend when I was on a trip a while back. Unfortunately, I inherited some of the worst parts of my father – mainly foot stank. So, I was at their house in the evening after a long day of being trapped in my shoes. I slipped my shoes off and placed them next to the desk in the bedroom they were letting me stay […]

    I came home the other day to find a flyer stuffed in my door frame from a local politician. I don’t like people coming to my door to sell stuff. It’s just rude. But then to have a professional liar try to come and convince me that he’s the guy to vote for, give me a break. Not only was he from the wrong party (I typically align myself with one side of the ai […]

  • Fat-ass thinks I’m cute! July 1, 2006
    My friend Kendall and I were flying to San Diego for a business trip and we had to take off in one of those prop-job planes out of our rinky-dink airport here is Bellingham. So we get on this plane whose seats are barely wider than one of Paris Hilton’s thighs and Kendall and I are a couple full size fat-asses. We were seated next to each other on one side, […]
