Jillian Sidoti, co-founder of the Last Life Ever Foundation, took an interesting approach to gift giving over the 2020 holiday season. Rather than attempting to figure out who had the greatest needs, she turned to her podcast listeners and other online followers and asked them a unique, yet important question: “Who do you know whose life could be made better?” The responses poured in from a variety of sources and were quite broad in both scope and creativity. From small yet thoughtful gifts such as Starbucks’ gift cards and See’s candy boxes to gift baskets for dozens of families made up the bulk of the smaller grants. The Last LIfe Ever Foundation took it much farther however. A number of families needed direct economic help. Through her website, www.JillianSidoti.com, and her Twitter and Instagram accounts, (https://twitter.com/JillianSidoti & https://www.instagram.com/jiveysidoti/?hl=en, Jillian heard about families who could not pay their rent, mortgage or even a car payment. On a case by case basis, Jillian and her team evaluated each request carefully and ended up making 40 substantial grants to families in need, making their holiday season just a little bit brighter. It was a heartfelt effort that truly made a huge difference for all of the recipients, each of whom expressed deep gratitude to all involved.
