*** HELP DUers -- 12/2/12 ***

Last edited Sun May 26, 2013, 01:37 PM - Edit history (3)

(I was previously given permission by Skinner to post periodically about http://www.wishadoo.org, especially when it involves DUers, with this required disclaimer: "The administrators of Democratic Underground have given permission for one discussion thread on this topic. The administrators of Democratic Underground make no claims regarding the legitimacy or illegitimacy of this fundraising effort. Permission was granted by Skinner on 8/6/2010, and the moderators have been notified.")






If you don't know the Glenn Beck-Wishadoo story, in a nutshell, he dissed Wishadoo! on his TV show in 2010, resulting in his followers stalking me online. You know...saying my support of The Common Good is part of the commie/pinko/socialist/nazi plot. I'm trying a new approach with the subject line.

Imagine every time you kick this thread, you're kicking greedy racists and bigots into oblivion!


Remember, even if you can't help financially, perhaps you have resource suggestions or can share your insights and experiences. We can ALWAYS help by simply acknowledging someone. It takes a lot of courage to "put yourself out there" and ask for help.

If you're not familiar with Wishadoo, please see my journal for previous posts.



1. A long-time DUer is still in dire need of your help! (DUer, rbrnmw)

Please read the Wishlist post, and note the PayPal addy provided. The Wishlist tool is like "a craigslist of compassion":

http://www.wishadoo.org/wishlist/138/help-with-rent-or-utilities-for-a-month/



As of Sunday, 12/2/12, $300 has been raised!!! WE NEED ANOTHER $150 to help this family!!!




2. Please also check out a new Wishlist post by another long-time DUer (deek).

http://www.wishadoo.org/wishlist/139/help-for-new-engine-for-disabled-van/



(The easiest way to send money without incurring a PayPal fee is to send as a “Personal” payment, making sure to select “Other” as the reason for payment.)


There are other Wishlist posts, some of which were posted by other DUers (again, please see my journal for previous Wishadoo-related OP's here at DU).


PLEASE HELP IN ANY WAY YOU CAN



Again, it is GREATLY appreciated it if you would kindly:


* Recommend this thread and keep it kicked

* Share the Wishlist post with your social networks (or share from here, of course)

* Offer whatever support you can (financial support, information, advice, well wishes, etc.)

* Share Wishadoo! with others (online and in person); after all, the more who gather...



Thank you!

ABOUT WISHADOO!: Anyone is welcome to use the tools at Wishadoo, so long as the Terms of Service are adhered to (basically "play nice" and don't lie). This includes creating posts in the Wishlist, a "craigslist of compassion." Most of us are struggling with one thing or another, and as you'll see, there are many categories in the Wishlist to cover a variety of issues/needs.

Wishadoo! is a comprehensive portal providing tools, resources and inspiration to connect, help/be helped, and cultivate compassion, cooperation and authentic community in myriad ways, online and in our own "backyards." Wishadoo!'s tools have been designed to integrate and be of service to all sectors of community: individuals, neighborhoods, schools, organizations and businesses.

The Wishlist is where we can ask, offer, give, receive and pay it forward. If you create a Wishlist post, let me know your DU name, and I can start to do weekly or biweekly threads such as this to highlight DUers' needs and offerings.

Any contributions to Wishadoo! goes toward the cost of maintaining the site, NOT toward any Wishlist posts. That takes place one on one, between Wishadoo! members. If you are able to help with costs to keep the site going, we all appreciate your generosity tremendously.

MANY, MANY thanks to those who have already
helped support Wishadoo! in various ways!

2. It's hard to bring attention to multiple Wishlist posts...

so I try to stick with the most recent listings.

As always, I hope people will peruse the Wishlist on a regular basis, and check out the categories to help narrow the search if they don't have much time. As you know, Dear Howler, Wishadoo!'s Wishlist tool is about asking, offering, giving, receiving and paying it forward, covering everything from critical needs to wishes, hopes and dreams.

12. Hi--deek here

You may remember me from this thread

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1141&pid=59

from April 2012 when I asked for votes to win a new wheelchair van. Thank you all for your support then. You gave me a lot of votes, but I didn't have enough to win.

My engine on my van died and I need to get a new one, so I am turing to Wishadoo for help.

Thanks

15. UPDATE (8:00 EST, Sunday evening)

1. Regarding rbrnmw's Wishlist post, we're now $60 away from the goal of $450.

2. Not sure the status of deek's post yet, but I've asked her to please update here as she can. If you could share her Wishlist post with your social networks, that would be GREAT.
