Heart to Serve Challenge: $500 Giveaway
For the past several years during the holidays, we asked this question: If we handed you $500 to help someone ELSE in need, what would you do with the money? Here are some of the incredible stories about what some very thoughtful people did when we did just that.
Heart to Serve Winners
Thank you to everyone who entered! We were touched by your stories and generosity. Congratulations to our winners below.
“You get that feeling when you’re getting pulled over by a police officer, you’re nervous, you’re scared, you ask yourself if you’re really getting a ticket. I want to help create a positive experience with police in our community. Thankfully through Mike Staff Productions, it’s your generosity that’s making this happen,” said Gudith
“To have this opportunity through Mike Staff Productions to give these children a Christmas, I am ever so grateful, said Tucker. On top of it all, to have you partner me with someone else where it would double the impact, $1,000 is huge. Mike Staff Productions is an answer to prayer and a true blessing.”
“My brother in law has never once complained about what he is going through and has been fighting and pushing through all of this, for his kids. I would most certainly use the money to help provide gifts, meals, gas cards and necessities to help them during this difficult time,” said Vickie.
Winner: John Carlos
John Carlos from Detroit had an idea that he hopes will multiply the giving spirit of the challenge. John visited a local grocery store and surprised 20 random people with $25 gift cards to help pay for their groceries. The catch? He asked that each person be sure to do a random act of kindness for someone else before the end of the day!
Winner: Billy Carr
Billy Carr, a volunteer fireman for the Northfield Twp. Volunteer Fire Department, used the $500 to help provide a Christmas to two children in two different families, each living with single grandmothers. Santa even delivered the presents on a fire truck for a Christmas surprise.
