This is How Far A $100 Bill Can Go

SImple Pickup Gratitude $100 Bill

The guys at SimplePickup.com were refunded a lot of money by a charity after they fundraised a huge amount of cash for them.

Jhaj & Kong decided to go out and tip those who are roughing it out in their minimum wage day jobs and the look on the workers faces are priceless.

This video shows you how far a $100 bill can go for some people who are struggling to pay bills and rent and how grateful people can be when you extend a hand and help them out.

Great video Jhaj & Kong, what an awesome thing you are doing for people out there.

Keep it up guys!

 

Tipping Minimum Wage Workers $100

 

“We handed out more than $1,000 total, and surprisingly, we actually got more tips refused than were accepted during all of our excursions,” Jhaj said.

“For many fast food chains, it’s against policy to accept tips, and many of the workers were actually scared to take the money for fear of getting in trouble — misaligned incentives, if you ask me.”

    Thank you for doing what you do. It’s an amazing feeling to give back. Last summer, my sister and I went downtown and bought many boxes of timbits (mini donuts). We went around the streets handing them out to the homeless. The reactions we received were priceles! Many were confused, some thought it was a joke, or we were playing a trick…but after explaining to them that we were just trying to do nice things for people in need, their smiles, excitement, appreciation and thankful reactions were more than money could buy!
    Simular to the end of your video, after walking around and handing out the last box of donuts we had, we saw a man in the distance, running towards his homeless friends, shouting with excitement…”Guys! You’ll never guess what just happened!” And with a box of donuts in hand, he reached his friends and yelled “who wants some?!” They all cheered happily and my sister and I walked back to my car and headed home. I wish we had videotaped it…but I plan on doing it again soon…and often!
    Thanks for inspiring me again!

    P.S. To other viewers: Yes… we do need more people like this in the world! Are you doing your part? It doesn’t take much at all and the rewards are incredible!

The Real Reason You’re Not Living the Life of Your Dreams

this is why you're not living your dreams

In August of 2018, I was sitting on the couch and complaining to my wife. The Oregon fires had caused a summer of smoke which meant we weren’t spending much time outside due to our one-year old daughter and my wife’s asthma. My waistline was slowly expanding and I was growing tired of living in the same place for over 25 years (my wife and I had settled down in the town where we grew up; a southern Oregon city of about 40,000 people). To make it worse, we had visited Cairns, Australia in May of 2018, which made our antsy desire to do something else with our lives even more unbearable. We couldn’t stop day-dreaming about travelling the world! (more…)

Your Enthusiasm Will Make A Difference

I have read Dr. Peale’s book “Enthusiasm Make The Difference.” As a matter of fact, I have read a few of his books. All of them are good reads. I love the examples and stories of his patients and clients in a world so far different than ours today. The stories are pre-internet days. Pre-everything days really. Some say it was much simpler then, than now. To a certain extent, I agree with those people. Life has sped up. (more…)

Your Life in One Sentence: The Power of Vision

Many people think they know the vision for their life, but they confuse it with objectives like wanting to make a certain amount of money or achieve a certain job title. Other people only have a general idea that is not well defined—like “I want to help people.” A life of freedom and fulfilment requires a clearly defined vision that encompasses your entire life, not just your work. Your vision is the glue that holds together all of your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly objectives for your life. (more…)
