Thought everyone would like to know that my co-worker got his check for hardship from his 401K. He will be mailing out his mortgage payment this week he said. I also got my gift check yesterday, so this morning I went by the bank and took out $100 (since I am replacing it), put the money in an envelope and just gave it to him, but did not tell him it was from me. I typed his name on the envelope along with a message inside telling him that I hope that this little contribution would help him in his time of need and just signed it "someone who is wanting to help". I figured that way I would not get an argument about him accepting the money. I just played it off as to not knowing where it came from and that it was left in the mailbox this morning. I think he knows where it came from, but cannot prove that it was me. The look on his face was priceless and now I have such a warm fuzzy feeling. I know my husband was a little upset that I was doing this considering how our financial situation is and has been, but sometimes you have to put others before yourself. I told him, if he had seen how this young man was trying to get overtime when we aren't really giving it and with one of his children sick and he just found out that another of of his kids has got a growth on one of his lungs, so they are testing him, afraid it might be cancer, so I feel this is the least I can do for this family.
