I know Omaha has the highest number of wealthy people in the United States per Capita, but the question is, are they as philanthropic as I have heard that some of them are said to be?

I know that kids and homeless people get a lot of attention, but what about poor people who doesn't have much and are struggling due to mental illness?

I have severe bipolar depression and anxiety, so I really don't go out much. It's even harder for me to find and keep a job.

Right now, I live in a low cost apartment thanks to my SSI (by the way, even renting a full cost apartment or house is even more expensive than SSI alone!) How many vacant GOOD homes do we have here in Omaha? PLENTY! We could solve the homeless/low-income problem by filling some of them.

But anyway, I have an Amazon Wish List in several categories, and would like generous people to help buy some items for me on my wish list.

I can email you the lists, or you can ask me for my Wish List name so you can have a look yourself.

Thanks for looking!

Not sure buying you stuff you want from Amazon is philanthropy, I could be wrong though.

If buying you stuff on Amazon is the barometer for philanthropy, consider me pretty cold-hearted.
