    Black Single Mom with $7 to Her Name Donates Lottery Winnings...

    ... to Police Officer Shot on Duty

    https://pjmedia.com/culture/jeff-rey...n-duty-n669378

    An African American single mom who lost her job during the CCP coronavirus pandemic lockdowns, and was down to her last $7, donated her winnings from a lottery ticket to a police officer who was shot in the line of duty. When the police department set up a donation link to help her out, she expressed disbelief and asked, “Don’t the officer and his family need it more?” This is how America heals, everyone.

    Shetara Sims, from Kansas City, MO, found a dollar in a parking lot of a grocery store and used it to buy a scratch off lottery ticket. Sims won $100, but instead of using the money to take care of her family, her daughter Rakiya suggested that they give the money to a police officer who had been shot on July 2 and was still in intensive care.

    The Kansas City Police Department shared the story on their Facebook page, and hundreds of people asked how they could help Sims. The problem was that Sims had made the donation anonymously, and the police didn’t know how to contact her. Once they tracked her down, they set up a GoFundMe account to help her get on her feet.




    GoFundMe is at $58k.

    Iunno. I'm not buying it. ¬.¬

    I saw it on the news last night. It's legit. The girl's sister was murdered about a year prior so she knew what it was like to go through it.

          Has $7 to her name. Finds a dollar and uses that money to buy a lotto ticket rather than putting it with her existing $7 to make $8. I want her to be my money manger, she's really going places.

            Is she African-American or from Kansas City? Or are they the same thing?

              If you'd pull your head out of your ass, you would see they are not the same thing.

                And after the gov't takes a wet bite out of the $60k/$80k/$???k she'll be worse off than when she started.

                  Jesus way to put a negative spin on it. Is $1 really going to change anything?

                  Not everyone is fucking accountant, at least she has a good heart.

                      Good for her. If i had $7 to my name, and won $100, I'd buy like 4 30packs of PBR.

                        My first thought too.

                        If I understand the story, she only won $100. Not exactly life changing money. She is capable of working to produce considerably more value than $100, so it isn't like she was tossing away multi-millions in a huge selfless act. My experience from being that poor at another time in my life, a little money isn't all that important when I will still be down to a few bucks in a few days. You scrape by today and will figure out how to scrape by tomorrow. Do with it what makes you the most happy. It seems she has a big heart and giving it away made her the most happy.

                        Anyone here gone grocery shopping lately with $100? how far did that get ya?

                            What would you do with the other $50?
