Today's recipient of a $100 bill through the Believe Project is Karen Emory of Mundelein.

She wants to give the money to a former school bus driver for special education students. Here is an excerpt of her story:


"He went above and beyond to make his riders happy, and they all loved him. He is currently working for an assisted living facility driving seniors to their field trips -- that is until he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer and is undergoing extensive treatment. The COVID virus put an end to the senior field trips, and he is having difficulty making ends meet."

• The Believe Project is awarding $100 each day to a person with a great idea for how to use the money to do a good deed for someone else. Submit your idea in 150 words or fewer at
