Say Thank You to People That Have Helped You

You never know how thanking someone is going to affect them. For anyone that read my book, you know about Mel Kerper, my 5th grade teacher that I wrote a "Thank You" letter to in 1999.

It's been so long that I had practically forgotten that I had written a letter to Mel about how things were going at Steiner and how much everything he instilled in me as a young kid carried through to my work at Steiner Sports. A couple of weeks ago I got an email from his brother in-law showing that he had saved the letter.

I am grateful for all of the things that Mel did. I am even more grateful that by writing the letter it meant something to him. Truly unbelievable- having that type of impact on people is not something you ever think about as you go through life. Yet, here it is, proof that even just a letter can have a tremendous impact on someone. 

What types of things are you doing to have an impact on people?

  • I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
