Looking for help [Nov. 1st, 2006|05:25 pm]
The Commoners' Charity Landpost

11pageapology
Two weeks ago, one of my very close best friends was diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer. He is 35 years old. He is fighting pneumonia, a massive kidney infection, and two unknown masses on his kidneys and lungs. They will be doing another cat scan to find if they have grown. They sent him home from the hospital with home hospice care. Since he does not have medical insurance, he ran out of options getting help and will have to fight for himself to get care.

Sorry to burden you with this, but we are trying to help his family financially with Frankie's medical bills
since he doesn't have insurance. They are trying to get him seen by physicians at
the University of Florida and Moffitt Center in Tampa. Normally, I am typically not someone who begs for money, but Frankie's medical bills are over 100k dollars at this point, and he has a VERY long journey ahead of him. While that seems like alot of money that cant be helped, believe me, even a dollar makes a difference.

If you can not donate or you are uncomfortable, you can simply pass the link on to this journal so that we can raise funds for his family.

I love my friend with all my heart. He stood by me at my first wedding, and is a wonderful wonderful friend. I need to do everything possible to help out his family and do something in return.

Hi,

I'm new to this community and I hope you will all forgive my first post being a blatant begging letter. I am a 28 year old police officer from the UK, in October this year I will be fulfilling one of my lifetime ambitions and visiting Nepal. Since researching for my trip over the past 2 years I've developed a contact with an ex-pupil of a school in a small village in the Gorkha district called Deurali. As a concequence I will be spending 2 weeks of my trip teaching English to the children at this school. I'd like to tell you a little more about it.... Gorkha is in a very remote area in the central northern area of Nepal up in the mountains, it is accessable from Kathmandu by a 9 hour bus journey and 3 hour hike.

Can you spare the price of a pint?....Collapse )

Thought I'd put this here, just in case this community's still active. My younger sister is participating in a local walk to benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. If you would like to contribute online, or just want to know more about the fundraiser and how to participate, please visit the following link:

S.A.V.E [Jul. 12th, 2006|02:58 pm]

S.A.V.E (Support American Volunteer Efforts) is a nonprofit organization campaigning to pass bill HR4387, which is currently under review in the Ways & Means Committee of Congress.

If the bill were to be passed it would offer up to $2,000 per year in a tax rebate to every volunteer.

Volunteers are two a half times more likely to donate back to non-profits where they volunteer, and their communities. Rather than giving tax breaks to the wealthiest 1% of society this would help to put money back where it is sorely needed.

SAVE is a grass-roots organization. Our office has a staff of three full time employees and several volunteers. We're in the midst of a nation wide press release, selling the idea of SAVE to the media, non-profit and volunteer agencies around the country.

The only way to pass this bill is to let congress know that Americans support it.

Please check out our website: SAVE - Support American Volunteer Efforts

Is this community still alive? It seems an age since I saw a post here. Well, this isn't really a nomination, but I thought some of you might be interested.

To help them rebuild following Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans Public Library is seeking donations of both books and financial contributions. New books will be placed on the shelves; used books will be used by the Friends of the NOPL for their fundraiser book sales. For more information and the address to send your books, visit http://nutrias.org/

Because I haven't seen any activity here in awhile... [Nov. 12th, 2005|01:55 pm]

...and I just found out about this website.

Santa A. Claus really is his legal name; the courts permitted him to change it on the condition that his birth name be carved on his tombstone when he dies. He used to live here in my hometown and make toys for a living, but has since retired to the not-too-far-away community of New Milford, where he and his wife raise reindeer. (I promise I'm not making this up.)

Anyway, they call their domicile Christmas Valley, and what they want to do is become officially incorporated as a nonprofit organization. They would set it up so that kids could come and visit the reindeer, and the money they earn would be used to help children with special needs. But it's expensive to get incorporated, so they're requesting donations. Contributions of $5 or more will get your name inscribed on one of the bricks used in the building of the facility.

Note: There's no PayPal option. All the money has to be sent through the mail.

Here's the website: http://www.santa-a-claus.com All the details are on the main page, including the address where to send checks.

I usually donate to Red Cross during disastrous times, since I know where the money is going. If I could volunteer my time in Louisianna, I would. You can donate to Red Cross here: http://www.redcross.org/donate/donate.html.

It's a minimum of $5 to do an online donation.

Katrina... [Aug. 31st, 2005|07:17 pm]

...has been devastating.

it's hard when practically all you can do is watch the news and see people's lives destroyed one by one. in addition to our regular monthly nomination, i think it would be great if everyone would contribute a specific resource or way to assist the aftermath of the destruction in new orleans. we can all make a difference, big or small. we all have at least one resource at our fingertips be it $1 or a place to stay which will help. i am asking that in addition to our regular monthly nominated recipient, we all go the extra mile to do something -- anything -- to help the people and animals who have lost so much in new orleans.

awareness.

i encourage you all to post a link to an organization aiding the relief efforts, or to post how you have or intend to physically assist. let's educate each other on what we can do to help and inspire each other with what we are doing.
