She has little hope ... and very little change. So Destiny Mathis, a 26-year-old single mother of three, is selling the hand-written letter that President Obama wrote her.

Mathis, who is weeks from being evicted from her apartment, graduated top of her college class in 2005 and worked for six years as a surgical technologist. In January, the Hobart, Ind., resident lost her job after complications with the birth of her third child, and now she can't find work, NBC Chicago reports.



In November, she wrote this letter to the president:

"My ultimate goal is to go back to school for nursing. I am so afraid this dreaded economy is going to have my family homeless."

Obama, to his credit, took the time to respond to her letter with a handwritten note on White House stationery.

"You have such a positive spirit," Obama wrote. "Please know that things will get better for you and your family."



Even though she hesitated to sell a piece of history, Mathis now hopes to cash in via Moments in Time, an online company that has sold eight similar letters for between $10,000 and $20,000.

"I really do trust that I'm making the right decision," she told NBC.

Will you be lining up to buy this letter signed BO?

    For the right, low price with the plan to resell it later for a big profit. That's my idea of redistributing wealth.
