Treat the special people in my life by paying their bills, paying for their cancer treatments and making a whole bunch of homeless kids have the shelter they need and give the parents a leg up. .

After buying all the crap my family will insist is necessary I would like to create some real jobs!

I wouldn't even buy the crap, George. I would open an account that they can access if and when they reach 100 and when they dont, you get it all back. Maybe that would give a goal to these young people. I love the idea of creating jobs!
