Thanks for all your lovely comments. I am amazed and truly humbled by the far-reaching impact this project has had. Please keep letting me know about your own ways of “paying it forward.” It is weird to walk around without the mission of giving away $100 each day. I’ve been smiling a lot but otherwise […]

The first thing I want to say is a very big “thank you” to everyone who has been reading and commenting. This journey really has been about me and for me, although I hoped maybe a few of my friends would take it to heart and be inspired to talk more about human connection and […]

October 29. Day 29 of My Month of Hundreds. Today would be my Dad’s 88th birthday. He was a year younger than Gina, although no one knew this because she lied about her age ever since I can remember. My dad, Sidney Ginsberg, grew up in an extended Jewish family in Philadelphia and New York, […]

October 28. Day 28 of My Month of Hundreds. On the way home today I passed the neighborhood high school where a football game was in progress. I had the idea to scope out the area and got closer. It was basically a muddy mess. Family members were scattered along the bleachers. I spotted a couple […]

October 25th. Day 25 of My Month of Hundreds. It was a kind of strange day today. The Sunday Oregonian article brought a lot of attention and traffic to the blog and I found myself having a mini anxiety attack. I loved all the comments on the article, and was very moved by people sharing […]

En route, SFO to PDX. Day 24 of My Month of Hundreds. The weather was terrible driving to the airport from the coast this morning. Torrential rain kept up a steady beat on the roof and the water ran in rushing rivulets along the side of the road. Every so often Neysa would reach over to […]

Dillon Beach, California. Day 23 of My Month of Hundreds. The day is socked in with fog, and the sky and water come together at the horizon in a gray blur. My friend Neysa’s grandfather and uncles built this amazing house in the 1960’s and the family uses it for weekend and vacation getaways. She […]
