Today's recipient of a $100 bill through the Believe Project is Mary M. Lane of Arlington Heights.

She wants to give the money to a neighbor. Here is an excerpt of her story:


"When I was diagnosed with heart issues and had two operations, Sarah visited and cheerfully cooked and cleaned for me. She knows I love growing potted plants, so she invites me each spring to plant vegetables and flowers on her balcony.

"Sarah and her family have saved me a trip to the grocery store several times by asking what they could get for me. These and other kindnesses by Sarah make me feel fortunate to be her neighbor."

• The Believe Project is awarding $100 each day to a person with a great idea for how to use the money to do a good deed for someone else.
