Helping others during the holidays

November 30th, 2006 Comments Off on Helping others during the holidays

My newest project is to help a person from Dubai donate $18 million to charity. Here is the email that started it all.

I love technology.

Dear Beloved,

As you read this, I dont want you to feel sorry for me, because, I believe everyone will die someday. My name is ldris Umar a merchant in Dubai, in the U.A.E. I have been diagnosed with Esophageal cancer .It has defiled all forms of medical treatment, and right now I have only about a few months to live, according to medical experts.

I have not particularly lived my life so well, as I never really cared for anyone (not even myself) but my business. Though I am very rich, I was never generous, I was always hostile to people and only focused on my business as that was the only thing I cared for.

But now I regret all this as I now know that there is more to life than just wanting to have or make all the money in the world. I believe when God gives me a second chance to come to this world I would live my life in a different way from how I have lived it. Now that God has called me, I have willed and given most of my property and assets to my immediate and extended family members as well as few close friends.

I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the U.A.E, Algeria, South-Africa, Uganda and Malaysia.

Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore. I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves.

Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of eighteen million dollars $18,000,000,00 that I have with a finance/Security Company abroad.

I will want you to help me collect this deposit and dispatched it to charity organizations. So that this would be one of the good deeds i have done on earth, Moreover i have set aside 25% for you and for your time.

God be with you.


Yours Sincearely

ldris Umar.


I was so touched by personal email, that I have to help with the most “sincear” care.

I have created a persona to help me assist this person in their nobel quest, Thani Kinoro. Thani means “second one” and Kinoro means “sharpener of knives”.


And my response:

Dear Idris,

I was heartbroken when I read your message. Having been through a devastating illness in my family recently, I can understand what you are going through. I watched a close member of my family overcome with sorrow in the last days of her life. Only our faith was able to keep our family strong.

Please let me know how I can be of assistance to you.

Peace on you,

Thani Kinoro
Assistant to Director of Finance
Hard to Forget, Ltd.
