Today's winner of a $100 bill through the Believe Project is Marie Jones-Stenger of Burlington.

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


"Currently, she is dealing with stage 4 ovarian cancer and will be a candidate for a radical surgery soon. She has been doing chemotherapy treatments, managing her family of four children with the youngest being under 2 years old. And she continues to work from home managing her (job) duties through it all.

"I feel she would be so grateful and overwhelmed to be honored this way."

• The Believe Project is awarding $100 each day in December to a different person with a great idea for how to use the money to do a good deed for someone else. Submit your idea in 150 words or fewer at
