The Frontal Cortex

Some people are really, really rich:

Take Oracle’s founder, Lawrence J. Ellison. Mr. Ellison’s net worth last year was around $16 billion. And it will probably be much bigger when the list comes out in a few weeks. With $16 billion and a 10 percent rate of return, Mr. Ellison would need to spend more than $30 million a week simply to keep from accumulating more money than he already has, to say nothing of trying to spend down the $16 billion itself.

He spent something like $100 million on his Japanese-style mansion in Woodside, Calif., making it among the more expensive private residences ever built. But that is only about three weeks worth of the interest he earns on his wealth. And a house doesn’t actually spend down his net worth because it is an asset that can be resold. At least part of the $100 million is just a different way of saving.

Mr. Ellison would have to spend that $30 million a week — $183,000 an hour — on things that can’t be resold, like parties or meals, just to avoid increasing his wealth.

Obviously, I can’t begin to comprehend that kind of wealth. But Austin Goolsbee, in the Times, goes on to wonder why the super-rich don’t give away more of their money, like Buffett. After all, there is no rational reason to have billions and billions of dollars. Nobody can spend that much money, and neither can your kids.

Goolsbee concludes that the answer is social status:

Perhaps they [the super-rich] get something different from having money — clout, power, the ability to dominate an industry. Or perhaps these are just competitive people who care about their position compared with other people on the list.

They accumulate more so they can lord it over the other families who have less — a bit like having enough nuclear weapons to blow up the world several times but making more to stay ahead of the other guy.

I’m sure that explanation is partially correct, although Buffett and Gates have gotten more “social-status” points for giving away their money than your average billionaire has gotten for being number 287 on the Forbes 400 list.

I think the simplest answer is that making money feels good. Economists assume that money is just a proxy for future utility, a fungible scrap of paper that we use to purchase pleasurable things. But money itself doesn’t, or shouldn’t, give us pleasure. The dopaminergic jolt of happiness comes from spending, not earning.

But money does make us happy. A dollar, or several billion dollars, is its own reward. That, at least, was the conclusion of a Neuron paper a few years back by Hans Breiter. He had people play simple gambles for cash inside an fMRI machine. If they won the gamble, they earned a few dollars. To Breiter’s surprise, he found that making money activated the same set of dopamine-rich brain regions as cocaine and other addictive drugs.* That’s why the filthy rich don’t give away more of the money that they can’t possibly spend: seeing all those zeroes in their bank account just feels too good.

*The good news is that giving away money is also rewarding. As Thoreau put it, “Goodness is the only investment that never fails.”

    I read a book a few years ago called A Natural History of the Rich that offered some insight into that question, including the social status points you can score for largesse.

    It wasn’t a scientific study or anything, but it was pretty entertaining.

    I liked the quip about Warren Buffett after he announced most of his wealth would be going into the Gates Foundation:

    “Warren Buffett is so rich he can’t spend his money by himself – he has to hire Bill Gates to do it for him…”

    I think a major reason is that people who wear really big salaries (CEOs for major companies, etc) are fairly constrained as far as time goes. Managing major charitable initiatives takes a bit of work – Gates didn’t start his major philantrophic push until after he had handed over CEO to Ballmer and is currently transitioning Chief Software Architect to Ray Ozzie to spend more time working on it, and I’m guessing most people wouldn’t hand over broad descretion in how to spend their money to others.

    I think this misinterprets what wealth is. It’s not like they have this money in dollars laying around the house. If they place it in investments, those investments allow companies the capital to invest in expansion which means expanding the number of jobs. If they place it in banks (which most don’t do) they lower the cost of money making it cheaper for businesses to expand, again, expanding the number of jobs. If they build fantastic homes, who builds those homes? They are the craftsmen that are hired. Same thing goes for buying yachts or jets or what have you. When they do so, they are creating jobs for the middle class. A craftsman who builds yachts want more of the rich to buy more yachts. This allows him to provide the financial resources to support his family. If the money is given away rather than buying a yacht, he could lose his job for lack of work. If you give your money away that creates no jobs but is a simple one to one transfer.

    My husband is in the army,we wanted to get a house for us and our sons.But his credit is bad cause of his last marraige.NO one will give us the money to get a house that we can call our own.We dont make alot of money and he has been trying to get his credit right for sometime but still nothing or no one will help us.He has been deployed twice and he will be going back next year.Even if no one will help us i think seen he has been trying and also serving our country that a bank or someone would help us get into a home and give us a chance in life.I would like to help him out in some way but i cant cause i need to be home with our sons.I hate to ask around for help but i have had it with the banks and there telling us no we cant help you.We are good people and just want help on this or even advice if that.Anyways thanks.

    My dad has been a hard working mechanical contractor more than half his life. He is honest and believes in a hard days work for honest pay. He and his crew were doing some work for a major cheese plant and things went wrong. Dad hired a lawyer but they were no match for the big corporate lawywers. That was the start of a downward spiral for business. My dad has always paid his bills. He had five bypass surgery a week ago, he is 67 years old and the house he lives in is falling sown around him. I am desperatly seeking help for my dad to fix his home.
    Please help.

    About 4 years ago my only son of 17 was shot and killed in a small town. Him and a friend was practicing bugling for elk before the hunting season was opened. They were on private land, and it was getting dark and they were walking back to the road. A pick-up pulled up and a person got out crossed under the no tresspassing sign and fired a shot into the dark and struck my son in the chest. We live on the Nez Perce reservation he was a native american hunting. I did not realize they could hunt at night or anytime of the year. He was on two different kinds of drugs so I don’t know if that is what made him see a movement or not. This would of been his third elk in less than two weeks I often wonder why it was so important to shoot at something you can’t see. I have two daughters at the time who were 13 and 16 which did’t deseve to have to go through this at such a young age. I have a wonderful husband who works hard My son and him did alot together so he lost not only a son but also a bedt friend. Me being the mother tried to help them all I put myself and all my feelings on the back burner. I tried to make everybody not have to worry about nothing my husband was in no shape to deal with the everyday life of bills I tried hard to keep up on all of them so he did not have to worry. I started using my credit card to pay bills and before I even knew it up around 18,000.00 it credit card debt. The sad thing is my husband knows nothing about it. Things are comming around for my family as well as to be expected all of them but me I can’t tell my husband what I have done I just got him to where he is a little more happier I never want to see that sad in eyes ever again I’m losing my hair, my teeth, I have high blood pressure my cholesterole is 296 all due from stress I work as a waitress I keep up on all my credit card bills but I can’t pay enough to get anywhere The stress is acutually killing me, I just want to wake up one morning and feel like I want to live. To be able to look at my family with no guilt. I never meant for this to happen. If somebody could please help me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much my e-mail address is deanna_thomason@hotmail.com

    I believe that what you have is what you have worked for unless it is inherited. I don’t have much, but I think the Lord gives me what he thinks I can handle. I’m not saying I don’t want more, I’m just saying I don’t need anymore and that is a blessing. If asked what I could use, MR. GOVERNMENT. It would be health insurance.( My gov. isn’t working for me) You go gitters, more power to you and keep on gittin it. You deserve it I’m sure. I don’t want nothing, Isn’t that refreshing?

    Homeless people are stuck at the so called bottom because of money. There is alot of un occupied land that could be used to grow a garden, and live off the land. But without money you can’t possibly use the land that isn’t being used. Kind of like how the natives got pushed out of the Southwestern states and put on reserves, and still the land just sits there un occupied as ever has been. Only taken for greed, so the already rich could have just little more. Much the same way people are stuck in cities to fuel the consumerism of today’s society. Money is simply a control tool used to keep the rich in power. This is why they don’t give it away. Without it people could do as they please and live off the land.

    If you give even a little money to a charity, your name is passed around to other charities, and soon you’re receiving dozens of requests.

    If you’re rich, you’re the target of even more charities and scammers. It takes too much time, too much effort to wade through them.

But to be the only male in a house with 5 females can not be very easy, more so sence we have all taken advantage of his kindness. JUst resently we had the wild fires and he lost most of his clients in the fires. witch has made me look and see just what he has done for so many people.he has worked for 32 years to ge to hes dreams but what I heard him say to his brouther made me cry. my dreams have come to an end, their is nothing left and I am gettint tired. what is the point it seems everyone wants and knowone gives. It would be nice to see someone walk up to my dad and just say here this is for your dreams to come true.If my dad ever finds out I wrote this he would be so mad. But we know this wont happen, the rich from what I see could care less, even when you work for them its oh thats to much. I just dont know how my dad keeps working for them.

    Good day! I would like to ask for help for my Mom who is battling lung cancer. She has been a good mother and I feel sad that the price of this is having a lung cancer. I am from the Philippines. A Licensed Nurse dreaming of going to the United States or Canada. Soon I will be fulfill that dream but due to some paper delays I can’t still apply for my visa. I really wanna leave the country very soon to help Mom’s chemotherapy. I hope that someone with a good heart will help us because she had her very first chemotherapy last Novemer and supposed to be she needs to be back after 4 weeks for the second session however due to financial problems. We were not able to bring him. My Dad can’t afford also her chemo because of my siblings in university. I am doing teaching job but then again money is still a problem. Its not even enough to feed 2 mouths. I am willing to pay back when I get to Canada. I just want added years in my MOm’s life for we never had a chance to enjoy so many things and I still want her to experience touring Canada coz all her life and also my Dad all they do is work since I was 4.

    I hope that MOm will still live longer not only for us but also for my Dad for they haven’t seen each other for 5 years because they worked separately in Iraq and Dubai. Feel free to e-mail me at filipinonurse2006@yahoo.com. I hope someone who has a good heart can help us with Mom’s chemotherapy.

    I have a daughter that was hurt in a bad accident 19 years ago. Her home was damaged bad during hurricane Rita and we need funds to repair the house so she can have a roof over her head. She gets about $900 disability and I am on social security and we do not have any means to get funds to fix the house. It is sad to say that she is not a minority other than when it comes tolittle money and for some reason you do not qualify for help from FEMA or other government programs is you are a white American. WE could use about $30,000 and we would find some way to repay the loan should you help us. Thanks Grace

    I have a proposition for any rich people that want to make a difference… I have a sad story as do most of the others here but I will keep it to myself.. I will share it with any respondents that are interested.. I suggest that a wealthy philanthropist invest in buying an existing business that I will run and own. This creates / saves jobs, helps an individual become financially secure and helps him help others. Part of the terms can be that once successful I would do the same for another person based on the same agreement. And so on, for as long as the benefactors were profitable. Rather than a blind one time donation to a charity with high overhead and costs. You can help someone and see the results directly. This also makes their grant live on and multiply. It’s a no lose situation. If the business fails it’s a write-off… which is good for the investor, if it flourishes they not only help me but also future people..either way the investor wins.. Liability insurance would be required to protect the investor.. No risk involved not even the original donation. There are plenty of businesses available for sale some for even less than 250000. I have put myself through college at night while working I earned a business management degree, and have 30k in student loans to prove it.. so the chances of success are greatly increased.. Interested persons please contact me at n2deepagain@msn.com let’s see what happens..

    I have had a most terrible life and would like for someone to give to me “just to make it all better”. I was brutily abused when I was a child,one of 7 children, and to get away from home I got pregnant at 17,which backfired real bad because my ex-husband turned out to be a wife beater. I came away from their battered and brused as he broke my nose,cracked 3 ribs, gave me a concusion and many other injuries. So,their I am trying to raise my son and all alone (no Family help,surprise)At the tender age of 22 I was a divorced helpless mess. I just want some good to come from the horrific life that was bestowed upon me. Both my mom and stepdad where alcolics and drug abusers. Please find in your heart to give some peace on earth.

    I see many people with so much heartache,i wish i could wipe away all their tears. I know about heartache too but after reading some post on here mine seem unimportant. My biggest wish would be to face living in my own home since my husband died. I moved away and struggle with such good memories and the inability to face life without him. money would help but no amount would stop the heartache of losing him. i rented my home in an attempt to keep it and i hear it is becoming a crack house. I feel my husband would be ashamed of me for how i’ve let things become.

    HI my name is Connie, I am a single mother of five boys. I never intended my life to be this way, but I give God praise. I believe that someone is going to bless me financially because I have never exploited website in this type of manner before. I am in need of a new vehicle and I am in need of someone to pay off all my debt. The amount that I owe in debt is less than 30,000. I am not lazy and I have worked all my life, but due to unfortunate events I have had some setbacks. Hear God I pray and send me a email if He (God) has spoken to you. This is not a scam and I am not begging, I am asking like God led me to do.

    Me and my family have had a very tramatic past two years. I first lost my son 2 years ago this week on Oct. 7th 2006 to a motorcycle accident. I felt my life was over. Then I lost my dad and two uncles. I have not been able to go back to work. I would love to have the money to pay my house off so I could then add onto my house so my mother could move in so I could help her. She needs me and I need her too. Please someone out there listen and help. I have worked all my life and now I can’t and need help. Someone hear my prayer.
    With all my heart,

    No, its nobbodys fault but mine that i am in the sittuation that i am in . And the main thing is that I can admit to it and live with it . But for my children and i to be in need and here in the United States and for nobody to help us with food, shelter, or clothes is sad. Exspecially when so many people are rich and have so much money that they would not be able to spend in their life time and they cant give. I work full time but i still struggle. And so many people worry about people are just out to get what they can for free. But what if they really need it? Greed runs the world. Do something for a person really in need without wanting attention from the world or any thing in return. My children and I need help. Although with GOD on our side I believe we will be ok. But if Anyone could help us please do so.540-238-9416

    Hello, I was hospitalized in August of 2007 with a rare but severe stomach condition. I was in the hospital for six months, and physical therapy for five months after. They had me on paralytics so I had to learn how to walk again. The doctors did not think that I was going to live. They even told my family to pull the plug at one point, because I was that bad off. Please help me? I was on life support. My family refused to pull the plug, and by a miracle, I came out of it all alive. I did have medical insurance at the time, but just being in ICU alone costs thousands upon thousands a night. Ever since June I have tried every avenue possible to reduce this debt, it is in the millions of dollars. Other things fell behind as well, such as my house payments and a few other bills. Everyone will settle with me for a total of $135,000. If there are very wealthy people that read this website, and could be of any help, I am not asking for all of this kind of money from one person. It would be great if one person was that kind, but that is asking too much. I know that there are a lot of millionaires in this world, and if I could just get 270 of them to give me $500 then I could pay this entire debt off. I know that to a very wealthy individual $500 is not a lot of money. I mean, if anyone wants to give more than that, then feel free to do so, but I know that there have got to be 270 very wealthy individuals out there who could give me this money without thinking a thing about it. Right now I am being threatened to be sued, I could lose my car, home, etc….that I worked very hard for before I became sick. And my story is 100% true, I have the pictures to prove when I was on a breathing machine to keep me alive. I am just an average, hard working American who wants to get out of debt and move on with my life. All I need to do is find around 270 people to help me. I know that there are that many wealthy Americans in my own home town, let alone this entire country and world. It may sound like a lot of people, but trust me it isn’t. If anyone can help me please email me at lookingforkindness@gmail.com. I can show you pictures of me, and when I was extremely ill. Thanks to anyone who is willing to help.

    Hello to whom ever this may get to:
    I have lost about 32 months of work since 2002. Since 9/11 like many folks we all have suffered great losses. I was off for more then 8 months alone in 2002 and lost 5 months in 2003. Since then it has been 4 months here and 5 months here etc…
    I have been laid off since July of 2008 to now(Doesnt look like I am going back to soon) Yes I am a union guy and I make good money when I do work but this is the worst in my 23 years in the trade.(electrician) I have lost over 145,000.00 dollars in wages and well you know the mortgage still comes in with utilities etc….
    I am humbling myself at this time I am behind on all bills mortgage included. For the 1st time in my life I am going to apply for food stamps, heat and power help and I am in dire need to get ahead.
    We have fostered Great Danes (great Dane rescue inc) for almost four years now, we give to them. Many people give them away, have them put down, take them to animal control etc. We have fostered over forty of these wonderful dogs and yes they ll have been adopted out to great homes.
    We give to them what we can and yes when it is good it is good, but right now I am way behind in all billls.
    I am not asking for 145 thousand dollars from anyone ,but you know ten thousand dollars would catch us up at least for a month or 2 till I get back to work.
    I feel like we have given to this organization and other charities as we have done in the past, Maybe this time some one can give to us.
    To a billionaire ten thousand dollars is like 2 dollars to us and I have humbled myself for the 1st time in 52 years of life.
    It is better to give then to receive I know I have done this for years
    TY Pennington you go Boy what you and ABC and Disney does for these folks is absolutley woderful..
    Thanks and God Bless

    Wats goin on here,man u guys got to be contented with what u have, go down to Africa to places like somalia and c for urselves or better still y do u not relocate sell all ur stuff and move to a little nation in Africa and you will make it better, cos things are cheaper and life is less stressful than an indebted system like in the states, last time I went there it was soo cool and the girls there got booty damn they loved me. Thinkin If the recession hits too hard guys just follow my advise and relocate it will go better if you invest there and you will even get better paid jobs there than you get in the states. Trust me I assure you.

  66. #66 Niki Ramirez
    February 25, 2009

    I may not have anything eye catching or different, I just have my stroy about who I am and why I am struggling to make it. My name is Niki and i am twenty six and Iam currently a stylist a salon. Two years ago i decided to move out of my dad’s home because he had remarried and I wanted them to be able to enjoy their life together. Little did I know that moving out on my own would be a rude awaking.I had quit my aunts salon upon moving out because it was a poisonis enviornment I could not grow in. My aunt had become a minupulating alcoholic that I could no longer work along side. I thought I would be better off starting a new in a friends condo with a new job.I choose this path to help better my life but in time it hasn’t exactly worked out that way. I had some money saved to live on and because I started at a much nicer salon I thought I’d get by ok. I ran through my savings very fast with rent,food,gas and such. I tried donateing my eggs to help others and also to help me out finachially. Three days before the extraction and after i have been on med.’s for almost three weeks they cancelled my extraction. The doctors did not give me a correct amount of med.s for my body and I was not able to donate. Therefore I did not recieve the sum I had relied on, and that couple could not recieve my eggs to start their family.I live a pretty simple life these days and have to live within my means to survive. Realisticly a stylist has to put in at least three years to build a strong clientel to make money and not just pay bills. I had only put in one year there by the time I was gaining clients, but not yet enough to really get anywhere. My credit cards then sky rocketed to stay afloat and sadly my dad had to help bail me out with that debt. I now live with my boyfriend and am currently two years into my new job. I have a decent clientel and love what I do, but with such a recession my clients are feeling it and cutting back. I struggle to pay my utilities,gas,pay off credit cars, and forget the nice things in life cause I need to eat. As if things couldn’t have happend at a worse time, my car was recently totalled when a chick ran a red light and hit me. I had worked hard for the only nice thing I owned and it’s sad it was only two years old and I had only five more grand to pay it off. So currently I am still trying to build and am doing the best I really can at work. Until the economy get’s better people are not going to be flying into my salon. I used to live a great life but now I am just thankful I even have a job and am really just trying to do the best that I can. I am one of the most out going and giving peole anyone has ever met my mom tells me but it seems like god’s really testing me these day’s. I’ve heard that god put’s these problems on people like me cause he knows were strong enough to take it. These days though…I just don’t know. So that’s my story and as good as it get’s.I’m just another women out there that a lot of crappy things have happen to and I’m just trying to get by. I turn my back on no one and could greatly use someonelse’s help for a change. Really any dollar amount is greatly appreciated in my eyes. Most important I have to get a new car and am trying not to seek my dad’s help yet again.If you would like me to send you picures of my car just ask.If you feel I am worth a hand out than I openly accept what you have to offer and say thanks from the bottom of my heart.-Niki

I am 54 and if I keep on going on with this diabetes, I am sure to die with this illness, I can feel myself going down hill every single day of my life..Maybe a doctor, or any medical professional, that could assist me, or a financial well to do good simarition that could help me, God in heaven, I would be so thankful..

    To spend $180,000.00 in one hour…that is a life time of happiness for me, my husband and our daughter. We are struggling medically, emotionally and financially just to get by every week. I’m from Eastern Canada, winters are bad and all winter we had to make judgment calls of either paying for our fuel or buying grocery. There are days I cannot send my daughter to school because I have no lunch or money for her. It breaks my heart to see her dream about buying new pair of jeans or the latest shoes or winter jacket. Because we have to tell her we have to pay this months morgage, electric, fuel and food…and if I can I’ll try my best to get her shoes. She missed out on a school trip to Europe simply because we couldn’t even afford a $150.00 down payment, let along the rest of the $1000.00. Now that I suffered a heart attack last October of 2008 and my husband having 2 heart attacks in March of 2009, we are just lost in bills. Mr. Lawerence Ellison I would never wish anyone what we are going through, I wouldn’t wish this on you, to the Gates, the Buffets, the Oprah Winfery’s out there. But if you have heart help these people who are in a situation like mine…$180,000.00 may not mean anything to you in an hour, but that means the world to me and my family forever. Paying off the house and making a bedroom and getting a bedroom set for my daughter, a full tank of oil, electric bill paid off until we catch up on old bills, even a good used car. The good Lord blessed you with your talent to become a successful individual and I wish you all the best with you and your family. I’m not sure if you will get to read this or anyone in your status, but it was nice to let my thoughts flow out here. And to anyone who is out there who shares my thoughts and dreams, God Bless You and I Pray You Will Be Blessed.

    Me and my partner together with my 3 kids are renting a 2 bedroom duplex for $795 a month. We really want to buy a house, but we don’t have savings. We can’t afford to pay downpayment. I only want 3 bedroom and not expensive house. We will much appreciate if you can help us buy a single family house for my family. My partner is only making $2,0000 a month. Please help us. Tnank you

    I am making this request on behalf of 3 truly remarkable people; my husband and his parents. After 18 yrs of dedicated hard work, my husband was wrongfully terminated from his job on Christmas Eve 2008 for failure to change an oil filter (they say). He was devastated as he has worked since he was 14 (he is 40 now), and didn’t know what he would do from here. This man has been my rock, and at the age of 34 when I suddenly became paralyzed from the chest down this man took care of me and brought me back from the brink of death. Never once did he complain when he had to go to work at 5am, come home at 1pm, clean, cook, feed, clothe and bathe me, take me to doctors and specialist, put together and tear down an electric wheelchair weighing about 200 lbs, pick the 4 children up from school, help with home work, take them to all of their activities, and stay up through the wee hours with me as I battled the pain in my body, then start the day over again. There is so much more I could say about my high school sweetheart, but there isn’t enough paper in the world. Due to my illness we lost everything we worked so hard for, including our home we had built 6yrs prior, our good credit rating (730′s to 500′s) and my husband’s 401k that we used trying to save our home. I want to do something wonderful for him, but can’t afford it. I feel this man is so deserving of many things, as he does do much for everyone. His dream is to own a bar-b-que catering truck so he can run his own business. This dream seems like it is so far out of reach now. Trucks cost anywhere from $28,000 up plus start up costs. We don’t like asking for handouts, and he has no idea I’m writing you, but I want this so bad for him. He is a remarkable cook, and everyone calls on him to cater. If I could get $31,000 to help him get his truck, I know that he will feel like he has been touched by an angel. The other request is for my in laws. They are the GREATEST! My father-in-law is an Elder (Minister) in the Pentecostal, Church of God In Christ. This couple has touched so many lives, and blessed so many people. They are the most selfless people I have ever met. They will take anyone in, and help them any way they can. They truly practice what they preach. They have 8 children, my husband their oldest, and they raised them superbly. They are some of the most respectful, loving people I have ever met. They are all saved and in church, and don’t fit the “stereotype” of a pk (preacher’s kid). My f-i-l’s dream is to build a rec center at or near our church where children can come after school for tutoring, music lessons (instrumental & vocal), and to learn computer skills. The cost for this may be $25,000 to $50,000. I would like to be able to get them the full amount, but will accept any amount in between. I also request $6,000 so all of my husbands’ siblings and parents could take a trip together. My m-i-l & f-i-l have dreamed that they could get all their children and their spouses, grandchildren, and great grandchildren together for a family trip. If you can make any of this happen I would be overly grateful. These 3 people deserve so much more. Thank you, and best regards

    Dear Sirs: I have worked hard all my life so I could buy a home. I’am 51 now and I rented uptill 2006 when I finely purchased the home that my uncle built in 1965, I spent alot of time in this house as a kid, and it is what I always wanted. My Son and I are selfemployed carpenters we work in schools, collage and factories installing lockers, basketball-backstops, casework and folding blechers. Things were going ok till the bottom fell out of the economy at the end of 2007, we can’t get any work now to save us!! Being selfemployed we can’t get any help with money or food. My house is in foreclosure, I lost my car, I’am behind on my truck payments, if I lose the truck we will be out of business, I have to go to the job sites to work, the truck hauls our tools. I can’t stand to lose my home, it has been my goal in life. My Son still is at home with my wife and I, and we have one dog one cat and 14 ferrets, if we lose the home where do we all go? Any help that could be sent would be a loan!! We work hard when we have work and would pay you back!! We are not looking for a handout just to be able to live without some bank trying to take your life away. THANK YOU!! and God Bless us all.

    I am a single mom of two sons. My ex-husband has multiple medical issues, which contributed to him being addicted to narcotics. He spent all his money on pain killers with no regard to his family or our home. he lost his job, we lost our home that I put my heart and soul into. He has put us in a bad credit standing. I cannot be approved for a loan to purchase a home for my sons and I. I just want a stable, normal life for my kids. I will legally make a contract to repay for any loan so that I can purchase a small home. I am not a material person and love fixing things up, so anything at all that anyone can offer, I would be forever grateful. Please consider helping us have a normal life and a home free of drugs.

    I have had my daughter in Catholic schools since 3rd grade and it is becoming very difficult for me to continue to pay. My daughter attends a Catholic high school in Chicago. My daughter likes the school and wants to continue. I also do not want to keep changing schools on her.

    I have done and will still do anything and everything as long as it is legal, moral and ethical to keep my daughter in the Catholic school. I owe $36,000 in private school loans from Sallie Mae from the past two years for the high school. Part of this loan amount is for my son who was also in the Catholic high school. I have to pay $500 a month for the next ten years and it is very difficult to pay this amount and have an additional amount added on for this upcoming year and the year after. I also owe $47,000 in my own student loans. I only make about $36,000 a year and I cannot receive any child support. I am working two other part time jobs, but it is just not enough. I am trying to catch up on my private loan payments so I can reapply for another private loan so she can go to the school this upcoming year and now catching up means it is interfering with my rent payment.

    I am writing to you to find out if there is anyone out there with extra money and they want to donate it to a good cause. I will truly appreciate any assistance you can provide that I know will result in the betterment of my beloved children.

    Hi. I am a 53 year old woman on disibility. I take alot of medicine, and I have 5 children, so all of my money goes to that. My husband has a wonderful job and takes care of our bills. I have a daughter who needs help. She is raising 3 beautiful boys on her own. One of them is blind and she had to pick up and move so he could go to a school for the blind. I just can’t help her, and she needs a home to raise those 3 boys in. My grandson will always have to attend this school, so they need a home, so he will always have a place to live. She does get help from the state, but they get alot less than their needs. I know we can get help with the down payment, but she won’t be able to make monthly payments. Please help me get a home for my beautiful grandchildren. I can tell you, this will put a big smile on their faces! Thank you, and may God bless you and your families, and return your money tenfold.

    I have never written a letter like this in my life. In fact, I wouldn’t be writing it now if desperation were not a big factor for me.

    I pray you will, at the very least, read and acknowledge my letter.

    Owensboro is a town that large parts of it seem to die a little more everyday. The one thing it does have going for it are the colleges.

    I have lived here about two years, the reason I am here is for school. The whole time that I have been here I have been looking for work. There are no jobs here. I finally found a job two weeks ago, but the company I am working for is not in KY, it’s in Portland, Oregon and I work for them virtually.

    I am so sorry to bother you with this request, I’m just so desperate. All my life the only thing I liked about myself, physically, was my smile.

    I am 53 yeares old and in the past year I have battled cancer and hopefully won, taken my GED & scored in the top eight percent of the country, started college and finished my first semester with a 3.75 GPA. I knew I was in dire need of dental work, but in KY there are no avenues to help you get the dental work done. I know, I’ve tried and tried. I am on the waiting list for Donated Dental Services and have been for almost a year.

    During the fall semester, which was my second, a tooth, under my bridge came out and my bridge will come out any day. The fillings in my two front teeth fell out and I’ve suffered an infection on and off for 8 months now. Sometimes the pain is unbearable. There are no resources for the kind of help I need and I can’t stand the thought of being in public, looking as I do. So I withdrew from college and I have barely left my apartment since the beginning of January. I have become more and more depressed as time has passed and more reclusive. I search everyday for help and there is none.

    Even though I have suffered great hardships all my life and I am all alone, I still participate in the random acts of kindness philosophy. And since I saw the movie Pay It Forward, knew that is the way I wanted to conduct my life. I am not trying to toot my own horn, I would just like to help you understand what kind of person I strive to be everyday.

    if you will please help me, when I finish school I will work for you or go to work elsewhere and repay you triplefold. I’m even willing to change my major in school so when I graduate it would be in a profession that would directly benefit your business. I’d be happy doing so! As it stands right now … I have no quality of life and it gets worse everyday, so you see changing my major would not matter.

    I realize you get dozens of letters like this and if you dismiss mine I will understand. But, if you do help me, you will be saving my life. Literally!

    I am all alone in this world, not even a soul to talk too. I can not even stand to look in the mirror and at this point see no reason to go on. I cry all the time, though it does no good. And I am so tired of struggling just to stay alive.

    “Please, someone help me!” Please….

    Thank you so much for taking the time to read it.

    To Whom it may concern;

    Your article was very interesting. I beleive it is part true. However I think people’s circumstances and the choices they make also have something to do with how much money they have. Not to say that rich people don’t have problems because I beleive they do. But choosing to pay a certain bill or helping your children is not something they have to do. I also realize that some people are self made millionaires and that they worked hard to get there and also gave up a lot on their way. With that said I to am going to be one of the many that I have noticed asked for help. I am in dire need of financial assistance. I am facing a foreclousure and also my car is going to be reposessed. I work very hard and I am gratefull that I have a job. My children however do not two of my children have lost their jobs and cannot seem to find work. I am supporting the entire household. This all came about after 2008. I was doing financially o k till around then, I had one son in a Tech. School and another getting braces I had refinanced the house and received a second mortgage. I was still o k. My son’s school was being paid for by a parent plus loan not coming due till he graduated. Well we figured he could pay the loan when he came out of school an got a job. (didn’t happen) Who new the bottom was going to fall out on every thing. This is a vey hard letter to write because of my pride and integrety but I don’t know where else to turn. You have my e-mail address and my name,if you contact me I will give you my phone # and any other information you want. I do not feel comfortable putting all the personal info out in public. Thank you for your time, I hope to hear from you.

    Honestly, many of the super rich do give away large portions of their wealth to charities that badly need it. Ask anybody who complains about the rich needing to give away their wealth; When was the last time they have given anything to charity? (I have asked several people) Blank stares and rants about how hard it is follows. Perhaps before you get crazy about someones personal belongings i.e. THEIR wealth, we should follow there lead and help out your local charities. Don’t have a job? No money? Offer to volunteer your time. So save you energy from ranting about the rich and really do something that can make an impact on your community.
    Best of life to all of you.

    Happy holidays to all who read this rich and not so rich. I am a very rich woman rich within that is. I have literally given fame and fortune away because It was difficult to understand that lifestyle. I now regret it I live in unspeakable poverty and so do my children. My heart goes for my lovely daughters who work overtime to make ends meet even a university graduation diploma makes not much difference. I would give my life if any of this rich wonderful people would give away a home for my daugther Rose and Jean…Please if anyone cares to share his wealth a home for christmas so my girl will not have to live in a bad neighborhood rent a room for more than what she makes and cant get out of the pit. Please help us someone I am on section 8 for sixteen years and cant get out of this sinking boat. My children would respect me more if they had a home to visit Mom at. My manager wants me out so he can rent for more and makes my life miserable implicating lies to section 8 so they will throw me out without warrant. I live alone I am an industrial injured worker and social security pitiful amount is pending. Please someone help us in Gods name. Or have I ran out of good fortune? They say that those who can let go of great fortune are the real rich ones? We are but then again without a penny life is sad. Sincerely Angie.

    Dear Bill Gates, Mr. Forbes and many others on the wealthy list across earth. I think the problem with the world is corporate offices and jobs that pay so little that the people remain a lifetime living as economic slaves. I want to change the world one person at a time. I wish for all the rich people or anyone out of many to help change one life at a time. Please help people individually. Avoid those who want to offer jobs while getting a business for themselves because the system continues to enslave people. If I was given money I would build a business and then offer great benefits and great company benefits not as employees but as family co owners. That would be a real change and if I start this dream perhaps it can live and breath in the face of reality….like I do. I am a dream that lives and breads and does not die in the face of poverty which I am experiencing. I have gained 50 lbs just sitting slaving for a company that pays me nothing for my Bachelor degree with honorable diplomas doing collections in a law firm. I would give anything to get out of here to have my own business where my employees would be my brothers and sisters alike and the benefits given equally to all who work the business. Please help my dream come true thank you. Happy holidays Rose

    Hello: I read all the comments. Some of you suggest that Charities is the way to go for the supper rich donations. I never have known of charities who have changed a persons life in any way. Actually charities put all money donated millions of it in the bank and use only the earned interest to give out small food donations to hungry or selective scholarships. It all is such a pitiful ” business deal with charities” the truth is NO charity has ever done anything to change a single persons life. To give to people to keep them from dying is not helping them it is en longating their misery and it is cruel to say the least. Changing a persons life is giving him/her what she needs to come out of the pit not to feed a person while in the pit and leave person in it just so the donations in full continue earning interest. There are billions being donated yearly to ill spirited charities that are self serving and or help so many little causes that they do not make a difference in persons life. Very few charities work legitimately to the benefit of humans in need or animals and even fewer to none, change a persons life. Rich people please give your desired tax deductible money to the people themselves in NEED. May God bless you all rich people with wisdom not just to give but to change a persons life one person at a time. Remember as you give so shall you receive.

    January 5, 2010

    Rich people do nothing to help others. It is a fact of life. The entire economic system is just one big ponzi scheme. The Federal Reserve Banks loan money to banks at near ZERO percent interest rate, and then the banks turn around and make loans to people at 15-20% interest rate and charge up to 30% interest rate on credit cards. There is no possible way to pay off a balance with a 30% interest rate. This us USURY and Debt Slavery. That is why the economy is in the shape it is in today. It is because of GREED. I am debt free now because of bankruptcy. I will never touch a credit card again. All credit does is make you a debt slave.

    Dear Sirs or Madam:
    Would you please help me to help my daughter, Julie, who on June 6/05, was left with a serious brain injury cause someone t-boned her.

    She can eat, and talk now–but she cannot walk.
    I’ve wanted to put a pool in her house for her, but it costs a lot of money.

    Julie is only 23–she was left this way since June 6, 2005;
    Would you please help me by providing funds for this hydrotherapy pool.

    http://www.hydroworx.com
    I’ve been wanting to do this for Julie for over 4 years now.
    Hydrotherapy is the best form of exercise–for example in the pool if you weigh over 200 lbs, in water you only weigh 20 lbs.

    Why are people begging for money in Comments. If you have a comment about the article, then comment. Go beg somewhere else. I think this article is interesting and makes me want to read more on the subject — thanks to the posters who mentioned other artcles.

    P.S.

    To “Whome will help us” — Your husband had no business having children in his second marriage if he could not afford them. You pay for the first marriage and children first and you don’t complain about it.

    To Monique Williams — either buy a house you can afford or do like the rest of us and RENT.

    Request money for the following: need $30K for me and another $40K for my family member to attend college as re-entry students, to acquire BA College Degree in Business Info Systems & MA in Business Management; half of that amounts respectively are needed to satisfy outstanding student loans from previous colleges for each of us. Also, need funds ($35K – $55K) for reconstructive/plastic surgery, as I have lost 195 lbs via gastric bypass; in process of securing insurance. While my family member and I attend school, we are willing to work full time (or work a job position that would pay a full time 40 hour a week worth of wages for part time hours, so we can focus on finishing school; for my family member, she needs a job with the state so that she can get her full retirement in 2 years. My family member and I will also need a tutor, to help with test taking and studying. And if its not asking too much, my family member needs a home, paid in full, fully furnished; she’s worked hard enough in her lifetime, she deserves some happiness and peace while she furthers her education and works toward retirement. We both would need to be assigned a financial counselor that would work with both of us to achieve the best retirement plan possible and have funds for investments; so we can have a secure nest-egg/financial cushion if you will. Also, if its not asking too much, my family member and I would like to have $1.25 Million a piece; so we can live well, pay off old debts, attend classes that will help us both be better stewarts of money so we don’t get caught in debt ever again, have funds to invest with when we meet with the financial planner, have money to take care of those people in our lives we care about; and take a months time vacation before we begin attending school, nothing to fancy, just a place where there’s beach, sun, sand and wonderful peace and quiet; we both have not had a real vacation in over 13 years. We’ve just been existing for paying the bills, working just over broke jobs, and not living a real life. Any assistant that you are willing to give is greatly appreciated. Sincerely, Ray Crawford

    Hi! My name is Stephanie I have a little girl with Cerebral Palsy it is severe. She is very heavy and hard to lift she weighs about 85pounds. I been trying to get a HABITAT FOR HUMANITY HOUSE but been turned down 3 times because of past fianancial promblems they say. I need a house so DORS can put in this lifting equipment in that allows my daughter to ride on a rail on the ceiling, so I can get her around the house easily. I am a 52 year old single woman I dont think I will ever be able to get this eqipment if I cant get a house to put it in. If you could give some money to Habit for Humanity and desinate it strictly to be used for me and my disabled child I would ever be so gratefull. I could be that they may be unwilling to help because they think she is so ill something might happen to her and I might not be able to pay for the house. I dont know why really. If you can help me, e-mail me at woman_of_faith777@yahoo.com

    Rich people dont need the money they earned, and i think its a conspiracy that they make college expensive just so you have a excuese to charge people More. So who cares going to college shouldnt earn you a million dollars, if so i think the whole world would do that then. we need more equality…what sucks is people who are 40 and over desrve it the most, the new generation of younger people are wasting money badly on boats and hummers they simply dont need. Retired Vets barely can make it and they fount in the wars, i dont see Miley Cyrus fighting in the war and she gets paid way way enough to hear her anooying voice. There will be rebellions in the future fighting for equality i know it. People should get paid what THEY Deserve, not millions for singing and making 6$ an hour working your tail off in a mine or factory that actually benefits more to the world…but like i said a long time ago, humans Are selfish greedy creatures and enough is never enough.

    No, I do not plan to help or feed the poor or anyone. I plan to help only myself. As far I know that each acre cost 50 millions of dollars which cannot be sold. Because I am the owner and the absolute heir of this land which I plan to give to my future son, even I am gay does not mean I will not have a son. Because I am powerful to do. No need to help anyone.

    You will find a variety of automobile insurance policies that deliver various kinds of protections depending on the desires with the applicant. The fact is, you could modify your insurance policy to be able to meet the minimum needed, and also your wants. Note that you’ll find some states that necessitate operators. For instance, the liability coverage is required by most states; it covers the insuree in situations of property harm and bodily injuries. In circumstances of collision brought about vehicle harm, the Collision vehicle insurance is normally offered. There is certainly also the comprehensive insurance coverage wherein it covers a good deal including damages brought on by fire, theft, and vandalism. One more variety of insurance that you could possibly choose to take into account will be the uninsured/underinsured DMV auto insurance and also the private injury coverage.
