    It really sucks because some of those people have money and the ones who have nothing who actually needed that money to survive didn’t get any help at all

    Single Mom…My good friend won one of the $500. She has serious health issues. Next time think before you write. I am glad she won. She has struggled to make ends meet!! The sad thing is that she had a good job before she got real sick, now she no longer has that job and is trying so hard to get disability but can’t because there are some lazy people out there who got kicked off welfare and went straight to disability. She has a wonderful heart and a good spirit.
