Over the last couple of years I have been helping DV lottery selectees around the world. I have spent countless hours (typically at least 10 to 20 hours each week) learning about the process, answering questions from selectees, creating this website and extracting/publishing the CEAC data. I hope and know that this knowledge has helped many people, and have been thanked many times – for which I am truly grateful.Some people have asked if they can extend the “thank you” and donate something to contribute to the costs of running the website and my time – which is very kind of them.I have been working on a book to guide people through the process step by step and I am almost ready to make that available through Amazon. I planned to use any income from that book to pay for something I could enjoy with my daughter (almost 7 years old) who sees me working on DV lottery forums and BritSimonSays as my “second job”. She, frankly, misses out from the time I spend, but I feel that helping people through this process is important work. So – she would like me to build a “secret” treehouse (shhh – don’t say the secret out loud), so she and I could spend some quality time together.
However, I didn’t start doing this for money, and I want to continue providing information to those that need it, free of charge. So – in order to keep this as a public resource, I would prefer to publish the new information (guides to the process) on my webpage instead of the book – I would feel better about that idea.
So perhaps you want to help with the treehouse project. It shouldn’t be much – just a few dollars – and only if/when you can afford it. You can click the link below to donate and leave a comment.
I also would love to see a few comments on this page that I could read to my daughter to explain why Daddy likes to help all his “friends who want to live in America”. Her name is Sofia…
Thank you all and good luck!

Dear princess sofia
Your father is amazing man and behind every amazing man a great daughter. Your father cultivates happiness to thousands of people each year.
You may have grown up from being a cute little girl to a beautiful young woman, but you will forever be the loving daughter that you’ve always been.
God save you wonderful father.

Thank you for the kind words

I know no other person can love your dad as much as you do but I have to say even if I do not know him personally, I like him and respect him for what he does here to help thousands of people.( yes thousands!). And because people tend to ask the same questions over and over again, believe me you probably also have the most patient father in the world 🙂
If sometimes he spends too much time on his website helping people instead of spending time with you, tell him that you love him so much and he should give a break .
So, never forget these words I’ve written above here: Respect , Patience and lots of Love !
Cheers from Holland and take care little Sofia 🙂

Hi Sweet Little Sofia !
What a beautiful name you have !
It’s sounds like a princess name 😉
I am Jordane, and I come from France ! I am sure you know where is France, it’s not very far away from Great Bretagne 🙂
Sofia, could you please help me to convey a very important message to your father please ?
I really want to thank him for his help and his answers to all my questions on his blog. It helps me a lot with my visa adventure for the USA !
I just obtained my visa and now I am planing a new adventure in Florida where I studied during 5 months ! I can’t wait to go back to Disney world ! Have you ever been there ? Maybe Disney land in California ?
So please, say thank you to your father ! He is a very generous man and I am sure he is a fantastic daddy !!
I hope he is building you a lovely treehouse ! My father did the same for me when I was a little girl (I am 27 now), he build me a little tree house with purple window!!
So, what I suggest now is either doing a donation or send you French candy or French chocolate by post ! It’s up to you 🤗
Brit, from the bottom of my heart thank you so much…. you are doing an amazing and useful work with this blog !
Ps : I love your sense of humour 😉
I wish you the best Sofia, and to your family too !
Jordane form France 🇫🇷

Thank you very much for all this time spent on your website.
Your blog is a true guideline for our green card lottery experience!

Simply saying your father is a amazing, wonderful man, who helps others without expecting nothing. People like your father makes this world a very beautiful place. I just cant imagine how much he cares and loves you, if he cares to help people like us for nothing.
I will definitely help you for the tree house 🙂 to make it the most beautiful tree house in the world. When its done ask your father to post a photo in his web site.
Brit, Thank you very much for the quick responses you give. It just eases the stress in your mind with all these complications about this DV process :D. Thank you again.

Hello Sofia and Hello BritSimon!
We have just read your dad’s post with my partner, who lives in Houston. I live in London. (originally from Hungary) difficult story: we met a year ago in London. We did not plan like that, but we have been still dating (almost a year now). It is like a modern fairy tale. Do you believe in fairy tales? I would love to hear your opinion about them. We found your dad’s blog, because I am applying again for the green card lottery so maybe we can live together.
Nowadays people love to say that they would like to make an impact. Your dad chose to create something amazing here. He is helping people with soooo many different stories and also make them laugh (we laughed at his comments:)). He teaches you some fantastic lessons about caring, sharing, compassion, passion and hope. And most importantly he brings people together from different backgrounds. And that is what the World needs today.
Thank you for his amazing work and sacrifice.
Have a magical day little girl!
Hugs and greetings from the home of Harry Potter.

That’s a lovely message. Thank you very much! I will read it with her tonight.

I have a seven year old daughter like you. We recently came to America because we won the Green card lottery. We would not have made if it was not for your Daddy’s work. I was completely lost till I came across your Daddy’s work on the internet. It has been a blessing to our family. I have two other children aged 9 and 4. They love America so much and am sure if they knew you, they would love to play with you and enjoy sleepovers.
Please know that because of your dad’s good work, you and your family are going to be blessed forever.
May God bless your family and give you a bright future.
Lots of love from me and my family
October 26, 2017 at 9:46 pm
Haha – Sofia will love this message – she LOVES sleepovers!!!

Hi Sofia 😃
At first I would like to tell you that you have a great father who loves you so much.
He spends much time to help thousands of people for nothing. And, the world would be better if there were many people like your father. You have to be proud of him and you are his Queen so let him to be proud of you as well.
Brit, I would like to thank you personally and please do stop what are you doing what ever happen.
We are all appreciate your help, patience and fast response
Thanks a lot and wish you and your daughter always the best.
