What is Aidpage... People Helping People

Builder1 started this conversation
You are a tourist on a city street... trying to find your way. How do you get help?

HELP YOURSELF

You use a map or a booklet with information about the city. That's ok... although... feels a bit like work... and is somewhat lonely.

PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE

You ask a passer-by for directions... Or simply, a passer-by recognizes your "tourist" behavior, stops on his/her own will and spends 30 seconds (often much more) helping you. You feel good. The passer-by feels even better. Witnessing onlookers feel good too. What happens is an easy, almost instinctive "give and take"... so natural that we don't even think about who "gives", who "takes", or why is this happening. This is not "giving"... people are just helping each other.

SO... WHAT IS AIDPAGE?

Aidpage is a free public space on the Web where you can:

--- Speak out about your problems and needs.
--- Act upon your need to help others.

Aidpage fosters informal communication, sharing of experience, and mutual support.

E-Bay enables the simple, direct "people buying from people" over the Internet.

Take care and hope to see you again.

Hello Tina I am sorry you have MS. I saw you off to the side and not seeing you before had to click on your picture to see what your story was. I have met many women and one man on the net who have this horrible disease. I have even written about it in my blog from what it is by looking it up on the net. I have a link for food banks in your state

CLICK HERE

RALPH7 has MS and he is a member here. He has had it for quite sometime and I see him here and on facebook.

MS,cancer and all the other diseases that rob one of so much especially when it comes to funds.

Have you called 211 or vistit 211.org for food assistance and 866 3 hungry for food

See this link and St.Vincent de Paul's there and others for help

I am a 32 year old mother of a 10yr old girl and a 3yr old boy and I was alittle embarassed to say that I needed help because this year we aren't having a christmas. I have to provide a roof over my children's head and that doesn't leave much room for extras. If there is any way that I can get some type of assistance to provide them with alittle something, that would be greatly appreciated. I pray for each and every one of you on this site that each one of us may be blessed with a miracle this year.

I'm not really sure what this page is for, or if this is appropriate. Really, I just need to vent. We are so broke. We aren't going to make it. I'm in my last semester of school, but I don't think I'll be able to finish--meaning more time spent at a bad job earning no money. My husband was laid off last April, and has been unable to get a job since then. Everyone in our area has been laid off. We can't move, because if I transfer to another school I'll be farther behind, and farther from getting a job that will actually help. All our savings are gone. We didn't apply for unemployment because we thought we could make it without help--never thought he'd be out of work this long--and now we don't qualify because he didn't work the right quarters last year.

 

I've told my family we have plans with my in-laws, and my in-laws we have plans with my family, so we can avoid going to anyone's house for the holidays. I don't want to sit in a room full of people giving gifts without being able to give anything back. We found some toy trucks on ebay for my little boy, but it's pathetic. My husband just keeps saying everything will be okay, but I don't see how it will. Even if he went back to work on Monday, we're so far behind we'll never catch up. Our insurance is going to run out soon (we had COBRA from his last job), and then I will be terrified. Toddlers get sick.

 

I know from reading the other posts here that I am just feeling sorry for myself; we are blessed with health and at least a modicum of happiness most of the time. But I am literally sick over our finances.

Hello ALL, My name is Ron and this is why I am asking for help. I am in need of at least $5,000.00 dollars min. to get us out and doing good for multiple sclerosis.

Racers Against Multiple Sclerosis

406 N. Modena St Gastonia NC 28054

Dear Friend,

My name is Ronald Gooden and I’m starting a drag race team to travel around the country to help raise awareness and donations for Multiple Sclerosis and Racers with disabilities. We want to raise awareness to the research of this. I am in search of some contributions of time and labor and maybe some materials/parts. This is all for a good cause. I am also looking for some sponsors or investors to help with this venue.

Now let me tell you how this all came about.

I’ve tried to get others interested in this venue without any luck. See No one is willing to take a chance on this and on me. Most people don’t even know what multiple sclerosis really is or what effect it has on people who have it. I don’t want people to feel sorry for me, but I just need help and donations are a part of that help.

You might be saying and thinking, Yeah right; this is just some guy trying to get something for nothing. But that’s not how it is, I’m just someone who is willing to do anything it takes to make people aware of multiple sclerosis and help find a cure and help racers with disabilities. But I’m just one man.... Trying to make a difference.

Although all of us diagnosed with multiple sclerosis experience different things, one thing is the same, we all have to deal with symptoms, but we have to try and overcome them to make life better. Life offers us a lot of great things and it has its downfalls and also great joy.

When I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2000, I was floored. I thought “ How could this happen to me” and “ What am I going to do now”. Well, after a lot of self-pity and a lot of heartache I had a dream one night. I decided that multiple sclerosis was not going to keep me from doing the things I saw in that dream and the things I wanted to do.

The dream I had, well, I saw myself with a drag team. I had a drag truck, and on the side of that truck was the logo of Racers Against Multiple Sclerosis. RAMS. My family and I were going from track to track telling people about multiple sclerosis and raising awareness and donations. I want to let people know that it doesn't have to keep us down. This team is about helping people not only to overcome life’s trials but also to help them see that “Yes we can do it”. I want people to see that multiple sclerosis and other disabilities doesn’t mean we can’t fully function and make our dreams come true I want people to see living proof of this. It won’t be easy, but I’m just one man wanting to make a difference and see people all over the world support the fight against multiple sclerosis and other disabilities. Help Racers Against Multiple Sclerosis. Help by donating as much as you can, Send to Racers Against Multiple Sclerosis at the address above. Thank you.

PLEASE HELP ME MAKE A DIFFERENCE!

I JUST WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE’S LIFE!

SUPPORT US WITH OUR DREAM!

I’ve been working so hard to get a good life going. I got a very nice women at my side. Things were looking so good. Money was coming in from all over the place she was working, and I had two jobs. We were happy. Then we got Pregnant it was the happiest day of our lives. We were going to be parents. Then about two months later problems started. My primary job just about slowed to a hault. My soon to be wife had complications with the pregnancy and it turn out to be an ectopic pregnancy and she was going to have to have surgury after it had ruptured in her tube. This was after two shots of the stuff that was supposed to as they say “take care of the unborn child” That put her out of work and pretty much unable to move cause it had damaged both tubes, so they had to remove both tubes. Now we can’t have kids unless we do it in vetro and we don’t have that kind of money. But we really want a child bad. Now after that I had to take care of her because she couldn’t move or do anything by herself per the doctors orders and her pain. So I had to stop working at my second job and I told them what was going on and made sure I called out everyday that they had me scheduled. But alas they fired me anyways. So now I only have this one job and with it being so slow I can’t get the money together to pay the bills I need and to even try to start saving to have a baby . I just wish there was someway I could get the money and just fix everything. Because she is hurting so bad, and I can’t get no money so I feel useless. It’s just been so bad I don’t know what to do…. I just need some help. Thank you.

I will pray for your situation, don't feel humiliated, everyone on this planet goes through tough times, we need to learn to receive help as well as give it, thats what life is all about learning to help our brothers and sisters in this world, and learning to be humble enough to receive help back when we need it. I think its one of the most important lessons of life and something GOD wants to teach us. I know things will get better, so keep on keeping on you can do it!!!
