  • All the Time..I found a Business Opportunity that literally completely changed my financial situation all the way around...so now I take that given opportunity daily and offer people a chance to turn things around...Often I even offer to pay for the Business kit part of it myself, saving them over 70.00...Pay it forward

  • My friend from work was 3 months preggo and she got a call at work that her house was on fire. I went and got her and her family food and pay for a week at the hotel for them and also gave her some money till pay day she tried to give me money back I just could not take it back. She and her have a great friendship now and our DD are a little over a year apart but they are good friends.

  • A long time ago I helped a woman buy drugs. No, I didn't know she was going to buy drugs with the money I gave her because she made up this story about being stranded with a broke down car. I felt bad because I had actually been in a similar situation prior, so I gave her like five bucks. Next thing I know as I'm driving down the road I see her buying fucking drugs. That's when I decided never to help any crack head off the street ever again. Now friends and family...I will help but it all depends on if I trust them. Sometimes you can't even trust your friends or family with money either.
