United States of America (Press Release) June 25, 2008 — An anonymous philanthropist from the mid-west has set out to cause change in the lives of people. The philanthropist believes strongly in the passage from the Bible, “Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.” Philippians 2:4 (The Message Bible Translation)
The late Percy Ross, founder of the Thanks A Million newspaper column, would allow individuals to write him for help and then would award many of their requests. That act inspired the philanthropist to use a modern approach to Mr. Ross’ method.On July 15, 2008, MillionairesMoney.com will officially launch. Individuals will be able to come to the website and complete a questionnaire application about their individual need. The submission will be reviewed and if it meets the requirements to receive an award, the individual will be contacted to discuss how the award will be disbursed.
According to the philanthropist, “with the current economic conditions, some people just need a little help to catch up and get back on their feet. I intend to help as many of these people as I can. I am also forming strategic partnerships to not only give a person a fish but teach them to fish for themselves. That type of help is lasting.”
MillionaiesMoney.com is currently in a pre-launch state while final backend features are being tested for the official launch.
