What About Gift and Befriend?
Gift and befriend is a virtual cybernetic philanthropic site for the disadvantaged and benefactors around the world. The two groups i.e. the need who are hereby referred to as Receivers and the donors hereby referred to as Givers.

Givers are those who can purchase gifts for the receivers from their Amazon.com Wish List and the Gift sent directly to the Receiver. On the flip side, Receivers are the needy individuals amongst ourselves with various wants that they can’t afford. When signing up, the Receives write their stories and upload pictures of them in the site for Givers to read and see before they can offer their precious Gifts.
How Do I Sign up for Gift and Befriend?
Opening an account with giftandbefriend.com is free. All you need is log onto the site and sign up in the relevant category either as a Giver or Receiver as shown in the image below

The site is looking for new Receivers, and if you live with or know any needy member in your community, you will do us great service by referring them here and maybe helping them sign up. Help change Society by spreading the word.
What is in store for the Givers and Receivers?
You can select and send a Gift from a person in need’s Amazon Wish List directly to them, regardless of where in the world they live.
You can read about a person in need in their Blog on this site and speak to them over Skype before you send them a gift.
You can stay in contact and build a friendship with the people to whom you send a gift, if you wish.

Meet The World’s Most Thinnest Woman… But one of the most Bravest Ladies the world has.

United States FLORIDA – At just 5ft 2″ (1.58m) tall and weighing a little over 27 kg, Lizzie Velasquez, 24, appears worryingly thin at first glance. But her tiny frame wasn’t caused by an eating disorder. Instead, it is the result of a Health care syndrome so rare that it is shared by very few other people in the world.
 
Her condition means that try as she might, Lizzie, from Austin in Texas, finds it impossible to gain weight or store fat, and as a result, she’s forced to eat up to 60 small meals a day.
 
Despite the challenges, the courageous 24-year-old insists she wouldn’t change a thing about herself and, instead, throws herself into her work as a motivational speaker and anti-bullying campaigner.
 

“I would never, ever change my appearance, even if I could,” she says.

“It’s taken me so many years to accept who I am and like the person that I see in the mirror so I would never change it just to “fit in”

But despite her bravery, the condition, which is yet to be fully diagnosed and named, casts a shadow over her life, not least because most of the people who suffer from the syndrome die in childhood.

Her doctor says: “Lizzie is one of the very few people in the world to have this condition. Sufferers have very little muscle mass, their limbs look very thin, spindly, and many of these people, they die very early in life. Other children with this have had very different experiences. Lizzie is 24 right now so she has beaten these odds.”
 
Because of the illness, Lizzie has already lost the sight in her right eye and has limited use of the other. Nevertheless, she has refused to allow that to stop her and has penned two best-selling books, and works as a motivational speaker doing up to 200 talks a year.
 
“My parents raised me to be completely normal. They never told me I was different,” she narrates. “The only thing is that I was smaller than the other kids but I was just like them. As I got older, I became more aware of why people were staring at me and I started getting really angry.

“I hated the fact that none of these kids wanted to get to know me. In my mind, I’m just like them and I would never tell my parents I was being bullied so my way of coping with it is when I would take a bath and nobody was in the room with me, and that’s when I would cry.”
 
Once, she saw a photo of herself on the Internet with a caption ‘The Ugliest Woman In The World’.
“I felt like somebody was putting their hand through the computer screen and punching me over and over,” she says.

“There were thousands and thousands of comments. The first one said: “I just threw up over my keyboard. You’re gross.” The second, “eww, kill it with fire, now”. Others asked why my parents didn’t abort me because I’m so ugly. Can you imagine that?”

 
Despite the vile comments, Lizzie says she has no fear of bullies anymore and if she were to meet one in future, her response would be: ‘I won’.
 
For now, she’s concentrating on the future and the anti-bullying charity she hopes to set up.
she hopes to persue a PHD IN COUNSELING EDUCATION
“My dreams for the future are continuing to help others,” she explains. “I want to create an anti-bulling company. Something for kids and adults and teenagers who are struggling and so far, my dreams have come true.”
 

The Youngest Nairobian Millionares… Found Out how they Made their fortunes.

Age: 25
Job: Founder, Vencap Kenya
Cars: Toyota first, but owns others like a Range Rover and Mercedes S350.
Status: Girlfriend who is a pilot.

Home: Hurligham, Nairobi
I grew up in an average family in Nairobi. I went to Banda School, and Roselyn academy. My parents denied themselves a lot of things so that I could go to good schools. I then joined university in Miami (the US). I was the top student in class and soon, I was getting paid to do assignments for rich kids. With excess money, I began drinking. I steeped into alcoholism that I dropped out of university. One day, I decided to take my own life and swallowed pills. I woke up in a hospital, and my father came for me. It was the first time in my life I saw him cry. I came back to Kenya and attended several rehabilitation centres unsuccessfully. My father used the little money he had left and I was taken for rehab in a South African clinic. It changed my life and I gave my life to Jesus Christ. I am not ashamed to say I love Jesus and I live according to the way he taught (he has a tattoo of Jesus of a cross on the left side of his chest). Sh90 million in the first year I made my first million when I convinced an insurance company to let me sell insurance cheaply through tickets. It wasn’t even my idea, but when I looked at the projections of the business, it was going to make Sh90 million in the first year. Nowadays, I fund young people who have a business idea, and we own a small percentage of the business. I am not a billionaire, but I know when the total value of the businesses, if each was to be sold today, it would be in billions.
Vencap was founded by two New York hedge funds each at a cost of $1 billion (Sh87bn) as of today. Vencap has invested in about 24,000 business ideas from within the East Africa. We believe that Venture Capital should not take advantage of the financially insecure; that business should be done ethically, above board, and driven by an inherent desire to make a positive social impact, while being commercially successful. Lost 10 million in one day The most surprising loss was when the company lost 10 million in one day. I just went home and slept. It was a terrible feeling. I can’t quantify the highest we have ever made in a short period. I have one girlfriend, she is a pilot and we lead a simple life. Going out for pizza is heaven for us. I actually spend only Sh3,000 in a weekend. I constantly pray that through my business, I can help change people’s lives.
