• So... what the hell is this?
One of the most common questions I get is why are you doing this? What's the point of giving away these useless emojis in large quantities to dozens of people like you? Well this post marks 250 awards given away and I hope to give away hundreds of more in the next month or two, so let's answer those questions.
I have struggled with severe depression for a few years now, which has given me the opportunity to understand my personal emotions much better than before. I understand how easily a good day can turn into a
bad one, and vice versa. Just over 7% of adults in the
United States (my country) struggle with some form of depression, and if my personal experiences are even remotely representative of the whole, there are millions of people who can have their whole day turned around with one act of kindness.
And that's why am here. Think back to the first award you ever received. As a person who is generally starved for attention, my first award produced an instant rush of happy endorphins, and made me smile. If even for a second, moments like these gave me a purpose and a will to live. They show me that someone still cares, and my goal is to do the same. would love to replicate that feeling to as many people as possible because I know from personal experience it can have a positive effect on the outlook of their day.
Some of you were also concerned that should be donating the money to charity, or some foundation, where it will be used for 'real' help. Well guess what. I spent $15 to make 250 people smile. Sue me. Awards are surprisingly affordable and in my opinion, I am making a bigger difference here than I would be giving
$15 to the local homeless man. In all seriousness, though, with this simple and inexpensive act, I am helping more mental and psychological issues
than physical ones. I guess it depends on personal experience, but it's really all about how you value things.
To me, potentially aiding ones mental health for even one day is worth much more than giving someone a meal.
Another question people often ask is what sparked
this?
Interestingly enough, I didn't think about this idea on
September 10th, the day I made this account. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to do with it, but that is the day that Reddit was giving us free awards. So I made an account, collected my award, and switched back
to my main account for safe keeping. This account was unnamed until an expensive incident happened on the 12 (if you really want to know what happened, dm me). I have a slightly above minimum wage job and am comfortably sustainable without freak accidents like this one. I felt lost and had no idea what to do, so, like any clear minded person, I got on Reddit, switched my account back to this one, and gave away my award I was Saving to a post I was amused by. The person I gave it to sent me a dm thanking me and explained he was having a rough day and giving him his first award lightened the burden a bit. I sat there and smiled at it for a while, then changed my name, bought some coins, and began distributing, attempting to replicate that feeling for another person.
If you have any questions, I will do my best to answer them all. Otherwise, have a great day
AND NO AM NOT A BOT!!
If you want to help, give generously and spread the word! Dm me to provide financial help to offset costs, as I would like to give away even more, and this is obviouely not ciuetainable for me
