Paying it Forward to someone who needs it


Recommended Posts

I suppose no one responded, but if you or anyone you know in need could benefit from my post above, please let me know.  Otherwise I will close this topic down.  Happy Holidays!  Thanks.

Very cool offer. I myself do not need any assistance but maybe someone out there could use a pick me up.

 

I did something fun the other night, I took my wife out on a date. Got some hot chocolate at Starbucks and bought gift cards. We drove around the town and put gift cards in mailboxes of the lights we liked the best.

 

Maybe you can find your own way of providing a little holiday cheer to people you see and appreciate. Look for the folks that work hard a minimum wage job and hand them some cash or gift card.

How did this thread not get more traction. Very cool gesture.  I hope you found someone that was truly in need.

Hey All, thanks for the questions about this.  I did end up getting a couple of queries through PM and ended up giving $700 to the person who made the request below, which seemed like a pretty worthy cause.  The person gave me his contact info and I was able to confirm his identity and contacted him through his school's website (and his school assigned email), so I feel good it ended up in the right hands.  I'll let that person talk about what he ended up doing with the $.  But I'm very glad that I did this and hopefully can turn this into a tradition.  Covid or no-Covid, there are always going to be people who need a little help so I'm glad I can help in some small way, especially in this case to someone who shares the same love of golf!

This is a really cool idea. I'm surprised nobody contacted you. 

I'm a [x] teacher at a school in [x]. We've got a ton of kids who could use some resources (clearly this school situation is tough for everyone, but the kids are the ones for whom it's most important). I've been buying things like headphones, organizers, and various things to help them try to find success. If you are still interested in donating your "extra" money, it could be used for things like snacks for certain kids that have difficult home lives. I'd also like to buy some novels that I can give kids to use for our readings. As you may or may not imagine, many students are not impacted greatly by this situation, but some of our kids are getting further and further away from being successful.

Let me know if this interests you. I can give you more information about my credibility if you need it.

----------------------------------------------------------

 

Thats great, sounds like it is going to help out several kids in need.  
 

Truly a selfless gesture. 
 

Thanks for the update!

Hey everyone!

I was the lucky recipient (and my students) of this awesome generosity.

 

Last year was very hard on many students, and this was a great way for me to welcome them back to the class at the end of the year, and the start of this year. I was able to offer "no questions asked" snacks and novels for students to take home and further their reading skills. 

 

Trully... this was a selfless act by our initial poster. If anyone is wanting to jump onto this cause let me know! It would be great to keep furthering the reach we can have.
