Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 2, 2006
What originally started as a project to help orphans in Africa has morphed into a website to help people in the United States. Founder George Behm, 68, who has devoted his life to working with the poor in America, particularly Appalachia and Louisiana and since 2003 in Southern Africa, decided to bring his organization to the web with the launch of http://www.GenerousGeorge.org.
Since the website was launched in July, over 100 needy families in America have received a cash grant.
How it works: Anyone in need can post their request to the http://www.GenerousGeorge.org website. One of George's volunteers' awards one person per day a sum of money which is sent to them with no strings attached. Money is awarded 7 days per week, 365 days a year.
Here are a couple of comments from website visitors:
"Thank you so much for your help. I used the grant money to pay for some of my meds that I needed"
Patricia - Hornell, NY
"Thank you so much! You don't know how appreciated your site is, I'm glad there are still people out there who actually care about others!"
Teresa H. - Bloomfield, NJ
There are no qualifying criteria to receive this money. "We might have some people getting money who don't truly need it" said George, "but since we don't ask questions, it's bound to happen".
What's the catch? "There is no catch. The more visitors we get to the website the more donations and contributions we will get from our sponsors which means we can give out more money".
Please visit our US website, http://www.GenerousGeorge.org and also visit http://www.Thembalethu.org to see what we are doing in South Africa, Mozambique and Swaziland. If you can help, donate. If you need help, ask.
About Generous George: George Behm has worked with the poor for almost 50 years. He began working with the poor in Appalachia in the 1960's and '70's, later working with AIDS sufferers in California and Louisiana in the '80's and '90's -- before there was hope. At the 2002 International AIDS Conference in Barcelona, George watched President Bill Clinton and Nelson Mandela together on stage and decided to leave the
United States and move to Africa to make a difference. Raising money, be built up an NGO called http://www.Thembalethu.org, built a clinic and fought the South African government to bring medicine and food to HIV sufferers and the orphans they have left behind.
In September of 2006, George decided to launch a website to help ordinary Americans.
