[Request] Please Wish my Grandmother a Happy 100th Birthday!

My amazing grandmother is turning 100 in July, and I am trying to collect video messages, artwork, birthday wishes, and any other glad tidings people are willing to send her way! My goal is to collect 100 wishes for her 100th birthday, and I've created an email address where folks can send things: BirthdayGram100@gmail.com

She has lived a remarkable life; a French farmgirl from near Normandy, she came to the US as a war bride after WW2, and ran a diner off the Pennsylvania Turnpike for many years slinging chili and pie she made from scratch. She was an avid gardener, and her house was on a local garden tour for several years. And something she was really proud of was her 20+ years of work as a crossing guard at the local elementary school where she was universally known as "Grandma" and beloved for giving great hugs, always handing out Halloween candy, and listening to anything and everything the kids wanted to share with her.

So please help me celebrate the world's greatest grandmother! My plan is to turn the messages I receive into a video she can watch again and again (maybe also a photo book), and I know it will bring her great joy!

Tldr: Please send videos, art, emails, etc. to wish my grandmother a happy 100th birthday at BirthdayGram100@gmail.com

[OFFER] Tell me what you need and I'll see what I can do!

Background

My brother, Amit, committed suicide in March 2018. In the 18 months prior to his death, he struggled financially, and I spent a lot of time supporting him. This meant rent, bills, food, all of it, and helped him try to get a job. I eventually convinced him to come back home and flew him back (LA to Ireland), and helped him get established, while also paying for a roof over his head. However, it was too much.

He appreciated what we did for him but he decided to end his life and was planning it for some time, despite the support my mum and I provided him. He had a little puppy too that he left behind, Darling, who is now living with her grandmother, i.e. my mum :)

Amit is an artist, poet and philosopher. He is a beautiful person who lived life on his own terms. He is an established artist with successful exhibitions behind him, published poet, and has a Masters in Philosophy with a focus on Nietzsche. Sometimes people have difficult times, or a bad few months and need to be dug out, without prejudice.

Why now?

Amit is turning 41 on Tuesday. I remember celebrating his 30th with him. I wish so much that he could be here to celebrate this together but life doesn't work that way. It's scary what happens with time. I'd like to help some people along the way and make sure they don't struggle as much as he did. There is ALWAYS an answer.

But why?

People have a bad few months, weeks, days. It happens. And too often, people don't reach out for help, or at least those that need it. I want to offer help to those and for them to know there is no prejudice at all.

Problems can range from shortage of cash for rent, food, pet food, personal traumas, clothes. You know, the biggest problem of all - is having an ear to listen to your problems. Do you need a friendly voice to listen and chat to you? Loneliness? That's a problem.

There is no problem, too big or small, that cannot be fixed. With sheer determination and willingness, we can all attempt to overcome our personal circumstances.

I want to do whatever I can to help YOU and hopefully my help will ease the burden you're currently dealing with.

I don't need anything but I want to talk

And I want to be your friend, and I'm sure a lot of people on this sub want to be your friend too! I use discord / whatsapp / hangouts / skype and reddit chat. You are NOT alone.

What I want to offer

I never provide cash, ever. However, I can provide the following:

  • Fulfill amazon wishlists within reason
  • Food? I can purchase you a basket of food on a grocery site, or you can provide me with a grocery list and I can help
  • I need to talk - it's cripplingly and I need to get it out
    • Talk to me. Don't do it alone. A problem shared is a problem halved. Let's skype / hangouts / discord / DM. Tell me what's going on. I may not be able to offer advice on every situation but you'll always have me in your corner.
  • Artwork: Do you express yourself creatively? I'd love to help buy you materials!
  • Educate: I want to educate but can't buy my course on udemy as too expensive!
    • Education is a necessary building block of life and will pay you back manyfold. Tell me what you'd like to learn and I can see if I can gift it to you
  • Not on the list? Post about it! Tell me! I want to see what I can do!

What now?

Post a comment. Do not DM / PM me directly until requested. I won't acknowledge or help anyone who does that. I will try to help as many people as I can over the 5 days so please post away :)

I will fulfil after 12-24 hours as the mods will be vetting the comments. I will run this offer for 5 days (or so).

[Request] Today is My Birthday. I just want someone to be excited

I don’t normally do things like this. Today I turn 24. I haven’t celebrated my birthday since I was 13. I’ve spent every year since 2013 crying and am attempt on my 16th and 19th. I’m crying now as I type this. Life is rough, I’ve felt with so much from being undiagnosed as Autistic until I was 18 and being bullied by family to domestic violence.

I just want someone to be happy for me. I probably sound like a loser typing this.

Thanks for reading this EDIT thank y’all so much, I went and bought some headphones to celebrate

[Offer] Ab old digital camera

I have this digital camera. I'm not sure what year it came out, but it's certainly not new. The picture quality I've managed to get out of it have varied, but tend to be so/so.

I thought maybe someone would like it just to play around with, maybe for a kid who likes to take pictures and that way you don't have to worry too much about it getting broken.

Camera takes three triple a batteries and comes with a cord that links the camera to your computer. I will include a blank SD card with the camera so you're all set :).

*Preferably shipping to someone within the US

[Request] My birthday is coming, and.

It's my birthday soon. Like every year my family wouldn't visit. I made a post on RAOC earlier so I'd get some cards and I just wanted to make a post here for words of encouragement, or maybe a gift because that would really cheer me up.

Last year a bunch of people wished me happy birthday even though my post was up for a short while, and that was very nice. This year I'm doing better than last year, I moved into a new place, my little cat is thriving here. I have killed two plants already but the rest seem to like the extra sunlight we get here. We all miss my elder cat who passed away last year two weeks before my birthday. But we are alright. There is laughter in my apartment and sometimes I catch myself singing.

I'll attach my wishlist and if anyone would like to send me a card, I'd appreciate that! Thank you.

https://www.amazon.in/hz/wishlist/ls/394CW650D7YY8?ref_=wl_share

Thank you again. :)

[Offer] Anyone want a $15 target gift card

I’m a college student and every year inspired by my parents, I want to do a aok. It seems like people I see in my day to day life don’t want the card. It’s very a small amount but if I get a happy face from someone, that’s all I care about. :)

Edit: shoulda mentioned i have a physical gift card. So i think im gonna send u the account number and access # or i can send a picture. Sorry for the inconvenience guys, ik that’s not the best way to receive it.

[REQUEST] been at war with my mental health for months and I just need to hear some nice things?

Over the last 8 months I had recently moved into an apartment and realized that the two people I moved with I have had to support financially and it's kept us on just barely the precipice of eviction. I'm so tired and I'm reaching a point where I think things would be easier if I just wasn't alive and that thought hasn't left my head for probably 2 months now. I just want to know or hear that it'll get better.

[REQUEST] Im battling an eating disorder and currently in treatment. Could use some words of encouragement

I just finished my third week. I've been feeling a lot more down lately and I'm really holding back the urges to relapse. Not to get too into it but I've been getting a lot of dark thoughts and the desire to just give up and thoughts that this is all for nothing are really strong right now

[OFFER] Encouragement Postcard - US Only

I have a set of ~15 postcards that offer words of encouragement. Instead of letting them collect dust, I'd love to send a snail mail smile to someone who needs it.

Please leave a comment saying who you'd like the card for (even if it's you!), and why they could use a little encouragement.

US only, please - international shipping is outside my budget at the moment.

[OFFER] United Airlines Flight Voucher

EDIT: I have given the travel certificate to /uKissMyPink. I wish the best to everyone who commented and hope that you all will be reunited with your loved ones again.

Over two years ago, I made a post offering this United Airlines travel certificate. Unfortunately, the person I gave it to has not been able to use it. However, United Airlines extended the deadline to December 31 of this year. So I decided to post here again.

The travel certificate is about the cost of one last-minute roundtrip ticket from Houston, Texas to New York City during Christmas. The flight ticket must be booked by December 31, 2023. But you do not have to fly by then.

I'd like to help someone who hasn't been able to see their loved ones for a long time and has little means of affording a plane ticket. I've been fortunate enough to see my friends and family around the world and know how meaningful those visits are. So I would love to give someone else that opportunity.

[Request] help with necessities

Hello. I hope I’m doing this right this time. 😊 this year has been very hard on my family. I’m a single mom of three, and between medical events requiring hospitalization (seizures) and being hospitalized for mental health, I lost nearly 3 full weeks of pay, and I won’t get a paycheck until 12/1, but that will only be half of my usual. If anyone could find it in their hearts to help my family out, it would be greatly appreciated. I made an Amazon wish list of necessities, things we are very low on.

Edit: new list link as the other isn’t working:

https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3KXKNKBZIGTBQ?ref_=list_d_wl_ys_list_1

This is the link that isn’t working, but I’m not sure if I can edit my post by deleting the broken link. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/1EPERPD6Y0EAF?ref_=list_d_wl_ys_list_2

Thank you for considering. Blessings to you all.

[Request] My brain is OCDing survivor's guilt over a friend's death this morning. I could just use a kind word.

Long story short, I left work early one night because my mom was sick, and found a friend's goodbye note in my email. We called the police to try and stop him, but he told them it was just a prank, and they left. The next morning, he left me another note saying he was thankful for me trying to stop him, but that he wasn't going to let that happen again. He went to a remote location and didn't tell me where. I got written up by my boss that evening for leaving work early the night before, and I broke down in his office. I didn't tell my boss why, as he was the type to think I was lying to get out of a write-up or something. I just need a kind word to stop my brain from this terrible spiral.

[REQUEST][Israel][WW]My Aunt with Down's Syndrome would love some Birthday Cards (11th year)

My dear aunt Masha has down's syndrome and every year, months before her birthday, she excitedly tells everyone she can that her birthday is December 1st. whenever she would meet people, she would tell them, ‘My birthday is December 1st” And she would ask them to send a card. Masha likes to get mail and gifts, just like—but even more—than everyone else.

She is turning 54 years old but has the heart of a 12 year old. This is the eleventh year that I am posting online for her birthday. The last year she got quite a few cards and was so happy to run to her mailbox everyday. She was THRILLED! So beautiful people of the world -- can we do this again??

She lives in a kibbutz in Israel for adults with disabilities. It would mean the world to her to get birthday cards for her 54th birthday :) Masha only reads English, but any language will be fun and exciting. She is a fan of Hello Kitty, Pokemon, Tamagotchi, any Disney characters and loves animals too! But really anything would do.

If you are interested in sending a card, please comment and I will message you the address.

Thank you all in advance for this act of kindness!

Thank you to everyone that sent and shared my post requesting birthday cards for my dear aunt Masha's birthday last year You all made her day so special! Every day, Masha would excitingly run to her mailbox to get her cards, she would then FaceTime me and show me the new cards she got that day. This is the 10th year that I organized this for her. Masha received over 200 cards last year. The coolest part is that Masha waits until Dec. 1 to open them all.

So thank you again to everyone that was involved. May we all be blessed to do something simple for our fellow humans. Thank you again!

[OFFER] Miniature cards for everyday use

As a shy person I often found it easier to write out what I wanted to say than to actually say it. So I had this idea a ways back to create cute little cards to help people express themselves. I had the intention of selling them, but honestly now I just want them gone. It’s embarrassing how many of these I have, so just treat it as a near-infinite supply.

They’re business card sized so it’s easy to keep some in a pocket or wallet for daily use. There are 5 varieties, all with the image of a cute blushing girl on the front and blank space to personalize on the back. There’s a photo on my profile if you’d like to see what they look like.

Varieties:

“Thank you so very much”

“You’re just so awesome”

“You look amazing”

“I’m sorry”

Blank

Please let me know how many and what varieties you’d like.

Thank you so so much u/k310155 for the items from my grocery & necessities wishlist. I cannot articulate the depth and breadth of my gratitude, but you and these wonderful gifts are much appreciated and will help more than I can say.

I have been struggling with my physical and mental health, becoming disabled has been one of the hardest challenges of my life. I really am grateful to be reminded that the kindness of strangers is still alive and well.

Thank you x a million.
