“Destiny Mathis, a single mother of three from Indiana, wrote to the president that even though she graduated at the top of her college class and worked for years as a surgical technologist, she had lost her job in January after complications with her pregnancy. “I am so afraid this dreaded economy is going to have my family homeless,” she wrote, according to NBC5, the Chicago network affiliate. Mathis is now weeks away from being evicted from her home.
The president wrote back a handwritten note on White House stationery. “Please know that things will get better for you and your family,” he said.
The 26-year-old is now selling the note to Gary Zimet, who has sold eight other letters from the president so far for up to $20,000 on his site, Moments in Time. He’s asking for $11,000.”
That is a nice profit…… A little effort sometimes goes a long way. She traded in TIME and the tiny cost of postage for $11,000…. That’s equivalent to putting a dollar in the slot machine in Vegas and hitting the jackpot.
