Review: Year of Giving blog

There’s a man in Washington, D.C. who is giving away ten dollars every day for a year. This in itself is remarkable because very few people would do such a thing. When you consider that the man in this blog is unemployed, then the task becomes even more remarkable. He writes about the people he meets and gives the money to along the way, keeping track of what they use the money for, and even noting things that they need, as some of the recipients aren’t doing so well.

The writer tapes parts of the conversation with each recipient and posts many of them. He also writes up the person’s story so you’re part of this person’s life, even if it’s just for a day. He also writes some followups on past events if he hears back, showing the impact that his gift had.

Ten dollars may not be much in the long run, but it can definitely brighten someone’s day and possibly pass on the good deed, as many of the recipients have. Give the blog a read. You’ll find something of interest.
