Okay, who needs a star?
Edited on Sun Nov-14-04 06:56 PM by wryter2000
Who needs a star? It's time to get my credit card out again, and I'd like to give DU to someone for Christmas/Solstice/Hannukah/Kwanzaa/Ramadan/<insert holiday here>

Nearly two years of unemployment. I finally got a job and if things go well, I may be back to flat broke in a month!

How much is a star ? Can I pay you back? Neither hubby or I have a job right now so I can't donate. I gave the last of my cash to Kerry! Sigh! But thank you for what you are doing whomver you donate for. This is a very nice thing you are doing!

26. I need one too. Am waiting for disability appeal and husband
is working a temp job making $9/hr. Lost his last job after almost 20 years. Yeah, it sucks. No health insurance and I probably have MS.

We went from middle-class to the working poor under these thugs.

Thank you for all you can do. I love DU!

Unemployed for three years here, and finally got on disability a couple months ago. I would by honored by a donation in my name...but if not, I still think this place is the best, and I will contribute in the ways I can. Just not financially at the moment.

39. Click on donate
In the box where it asks for your logon name, put in the other person's logon. If you were going to donate for me, you'd put in wryter2000. Then click on the button at the bottom and put in your credit card information.

The star will appear immediately for the other person, and he/she will be so happy.

44. Wow, do people do this a lot?
I thought I was playing a game on another thread....

There was a request for Meatloaf lyrics...and the poster (Gryffindor_Bookworm) was going to "award a star" to the first two responders.

I didn't know that was for real...but sure enough I've got my star back!

Du is such a cool place.

58. Pinching pennies...
...so tight that they're screaming. Funding for my job ran out right before the election. Not a good year and the clincher was that both my beloved cats died in July and we're still recovering from the cremation costs. :-( I could really use a kind patron.

We're pinching pennies but I love being a DU member. It would be lovely if I had a star.

I would give you my fail-safe pie crust recipe as a token of my appreciation. And with the holidays coming, it's pie season, and this recipe could come in handy.

66. I need a star,
I am broke--I have been pillar to post since July 1 when I lost my job--I have only had a few temporary jobs since then, I have looked constantly, but still not permanently employed.

I took advantage of being unemployed to give lots of time and energy to the Kerry campaign--and also I gave every bit of money that I could afford.

Even though I love this site, I just can't spend even $5 until I find work--and who knows when that will happen. But, right now, I am so depressed and disheartened about everything in general that finding a job is just one more thing to feel bad about.
