Card Reply

Hi Dani,
We found your card in the store today, (May 27)! How interesting. I did go to your web site to learn more, but the "click here" spot does not work. At any rate it is easy to decide what to do with your gift. We have a lady in the store that pays for groceries for people, buys street people lunches and gives where everyone else does not. Why this is a small token, the message to me without seeing your project is giving and love.

May God bless you richly in His plan.


Dog Treats

I believe the total cost of this recipe is less than $2.00. The dog cookie cutter was fifty cents and I had the other ingredients already in the pantry, so small amounts were available. This recipe makes 44 dog cookies. Wrap up and take to animal shelter for treats.

Pea-Mutt Butter Dog Biscuits (Or Pee-Mutt, whichever is apt)

2 T. Crisco Oil

½ Cup Peanut Butter

¼ Cup Milk

3/4 Cup Water (approx.) Heat Oven to 350˚

1 Cup Whole Wheat Flour

½ Cup Wheat Germ

1 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour

Combine, Oil, Peanut Butter, Milk, and most of the water. Stir. Combine dry ingredients, then add to liquid mixture about a cup at a time. Knead into a very firm dough. Use a spoonful more water or a tad more flour as needed. Roll out and cut with bone-shaped cookie cutter. Be sure dough is firm so cookies will dry out. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Prick each dog cookie decoratively, using a fork, to look like Milk Bone. Bake 25 minutes, then turn over and bake 10 more minutes on other side. This makes 44 dog biscuits. Let cool completely before storing.


Some Simple Ways to See Those Around You

Dear Dani,

I love your idea so much and I have been back to your blog so many times to watch your video. I think you did such a fantastic job. The music and your voice really moved me.

I have been thinking of the $2 question since I woke up this morning and found your email here. It is more difficult than I thought it would be.

I have a few things to suggest:

- Donating $2 in collection tins. People or organisations are always collecting someplace, somewhere.

- When you are at a shopping mall leave $2 on a children’s ride.

- Leave your $2 in phone booths.

- Buy a frazzled mum a cup of coffee at a shopping mall.

- Leave your $2 at a parking meter or feed one that is about to run out.

- Being crafty, I can make a painting or a small embroidery for $2.

- Buy handmade soap from markets and leave at shelters.

- Buy a croissant, a pie or a donut and give to a homeless and hungry person.

- Leave your $2 at a bus stop or train station.

- In Australia there is a magazine made by men who live in shelters and every Thursday they walk the streets selling them. They are $2.

- Buy bread rolls or a loaf of bread with your $2 and donate the bread at a soup kitchen.

I will keep thinking Dani. J I hope those few ideas are what you are looking for.

Have a lovely week.



For the Lawyer

Dani: As you know, I’m an attorney. The only thing I can think of that I can do with $2.00 is to buy a pen or highlighter to write on my calendar. Let me know how things turn out! Thanks!



Cough Drops

About all I could do is buy cough drops for people in a small theatre!

Back To School

Oh, I thought of something I could buy school supplies for single parent families at my church at our annual Back to School Blast where we give away backpacks, school supplies, free haircuts, afterschool snacks, and more every August :)


Research Thank You

Hi Dani,

Great idea for this project and great video.

What I could do with 2 dollars at work...As a thank you to kids who participate
in one of my research projects, we give them school supplies worth about $5.
One thing included in that collection of school supplies is an insulated lunch
bag that we buy in bulk for $2 each.

Good luck with the project!
