Today's recipient of a $100 bill through the Believe Project is Richard Weigel of Lisle.

He wants to give the money to a mother with two children. Here is an excerpt of his story:


"She's a domestic abuse victim, has two small kids and was living in a car. Our organization, Daybreak, was able to find an apartment for her and the kids. But she has a long way to go to get back on her feet and be self-supporting."

• 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. Submit your idea in 150 words or fewer at
