  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

are we starting a "help jj1000 get out if being Jj-250000 thread!?" :P. :D
I thank G-d I have been blessed and hope to continue to be blessed that I do not have to ask for charity. It is one of the hardest things a person has to go through in a bad situation. And I pray no one on DDF ever has to ask for charity, but when people do it is touching to see the response.

{ But if you're offering me free money, I mean I am not an idiot ;)}

@xodus8 You can send them to me and I'll have them looked over. (unfortunately I can't personally donate as I'm about to go $250,000 in debt, but I'll verify for you.)

But as mentioned up thread when it is a long standing member they will get a much better response because more people know them.

Hey I emailed you earlier in the morning. When you get a chance please take a look at it.

First of all, let me wish your entire family chizuk and your mum a refua sheleimo

I dont think such zedakka events should be held here.
ddf forums was made to discuss deals, travel.... yeki was a long standing member and if he decided to post a zedakka case people knew it was urgent, but i dont see why every new member, that didnt do much for the ddf in the past should just start a fundraising. soon it will be like a shachris here, to get to the beth medras i have to pass all meshulochim. I think there is a time and place for everything, but not here....a lot of the longtime members dont write alot on the forums anymore, as every day there is another thread on the same subject and its very hard to see whats tachlis...this will not help the site at all

sorry if i sound very to the point, but these are my feelings on the matter

I recently became involved in a hachnasas kalla and found that through some hard work dealing with people and organizations I was able to put together (in pledges so far!) much more than can possibly be raised on DDF.
So to the OP I am really sorry to hear about your mother and you really should call all of the above mentioned organizations. Even if they can't help chances are they can point you in the right direction. ויה"ר שתזכה לרפואה שלמה בקרוב בתוך שאר חולי ישראל

Not appropriate.  Like with meshulachim, you have no obligation to give.  If you're bothered about the clutter, I can think of plenty of threads (we are in JS after all) that have far less tachlis than this one.
If you don't care why would you comment?

I'm going to have to agree with chuchem on this one. Let me begin by wishing the OPs mother a speedy Refuah Shaleima!

Although this forum doesn't have a mission statement, the description of every board is it's mission statement. There are many places where raising money would be appropriate but this is just not the place. Yeki89 was a one time exception.

Not that this belongs in this thread, but if you mention it, I just have to +1 you.
Since the conga thing, its getting increasingly boring here.
Every few seconds, another 5 posts asking about the same old garbage that has been discussed a gazillion times.
Not to mention the new threads.
The members back in '08, '09 had it so easy.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Agreed the DDF experience had gone down significantly since the conga thing.

Why does it bother you? Just ignore it if you don't like it.
