This week, I received the most wonderful email from a reader, which I just had to share with you!
With her blessing (although she did ask to remain anonymous), here’s a great story about how to not just live fruitfully, but give fruitfully — even when you’re on a budget!
I just want to thank you for your part in inspiring me to step out of my comfort zone ad do something different.
A few weeks ago you posted a Disneystore.com deals. Since then I have been keeping an eye on them. Recently they had a Buy One Get One For $1.00 deal on their plush toys.
It was a truly unbelievable deal, considering that some toys were marked down to $1.99 from $19.95. With free shipping on orders over $75.00 I got 52 toys for $83.
And this morning I am donating them all to my local Jewish Children and Family Services.
It feels so good to give back, especially considering that recently I had to ask JCFS for their help in getting my green card renewed and assistance with gas getting my son to his therapy appointments twice a week.
I took your advice and sold some things that we no longer use in one of the FB resale groups, which is how I was able to come up with the money for this to begin with.
Thank you so much for all that you do. I look forward to your posts every day!
No, thank YOU so much for inspiring all of us to give! Way to go ~ Tizki l’Mitzvot!
Have you used couponing or deal hunting to enable you to give more generously than you might otherwise be able to afford? I’d love to hear about it!
