I simply want to clear any misconceptions, that is why I am clarifying.

If a volunteer actually worked 5 hours helping a poor or needy person for 5 hours and it was legitimate (not baby-sitting their own grandkids etc), then I most certainly would keep my end of the deal - send a money order for $50 to whichever creditor they owe, with a letter saying to credit it to Jane Doe's account.

Those who know me, know that I keep my end of the deal.

But you dont know me, so how would you have assurance?

Because in your shoes, I would say, "If I cannot afford the bus fare to go to a shelter, let me find someone nearby to help, who is desperate, and not a friend/relative. Let me ask my pastor or local cop or even the mayor if they know whom I can help for 5 hours. laundry, cook, clean house etc.
Even if goodnewsforyou changes his mind, what have I lost? What is the worst that can happen? I will have helped someone in need and done good, and made a friend here on earth. Also, God will reward me here, and in heaven".

You, and others miss the point why I don't offer free $50 with no strings attached. If I made such an offer, there would be hundreds of people on aidpage asking for it. If my budget is $150, How would I pick (say) 3 people? Would I pick those with the most heart-rending stories? that would be stupid - they could be faking. More importantly, What about those with less heart-rending stories - are they less deserving? No. Should I pick the most religious person? No.

The only way to pick is to give the $50 to the person who will serve other people in need, for 5 hours.

1) their own attitude will change. They will be helping others, not selfishly focusing on their own little pity party. It requires getting off one's butt, contacting the organization or finding the opportunity, and going to work for 5 hours. They will dig themselves out of their own hole.

2) the people who are helped, will have been helped.

3) Even if the volunteer is not the most deserving of people (ex-felons etc) as long as they are verified to have worked 5 hours towards a legitimate help (Salvation Army etc.), what do I care?

Because we could do the volunteering and you could easily say I changed my mind and not give the money...I help people and love people for free..you don't have to offer it again, because I can't meet up to your expectations..I don't Bless with strings attached...sorry.

@jesuswins, I had asked you to look for a way to serve poor people near you so you do not need to drive far away. "can you think of a different volunteering opportunity [near you]? perhaps you can contact your local police or mayor for ideas."
Had you even tried? I don't think this will work for you and as stated, I am not offering it any more to you.

"what about a chance of us getting scammed" and how would that happen, if *I* am the one giving money?

@rj1needsu, sorry to hear of your tragic circumstance. As you may have seen from the posts here, If you are interested in volunteering 5 hours in exchange for $50 towards a bill to be paid, then look at my earlier posts. you must volunteer at a shelter or organization to help the poor or homeless or battered women and children for example, Salvation Army. Let me know if you are interested and able.

@Twistup, I read your latest post attacking me and I have to ask -
Why do you want me to stop something that is trying to help other people? ($50 in exchange for 5 hours of volunteering)

I repeat, you are helping no one here, so why are you on aidpage? Furthermore, it seems like you also have another account on aidpage but just got a new one to hide your other earlier threads.

Actually, *you* are the angry judgmental person. You also seem jealous that I am trying to help people here. I have done nothing ill to you but you are vomiting bile and bitterness over here.

You are criticizing me for attaching conditions to giving $50.
Your argument asking me to give money away freely, is illogical.

I never claimed to be doing the volunteer work or giving the donation checks that you are boasting about. You are criticizing me for attaching conditions to giving $50. I repeat, why not *you* put your money where your mouth is, and give lots of money to people here, especially jesuswins?

I challenge you to stand up to your claims. Talk is cheap. If you want people to give away money on aidpage, freely and without any conditions, you should start by giving jesuswins at least $50.

I WISH I HAD MORE SO I COULD HELP EVERYONE ON HERE !!!!!!! I use to think the only way to help people was with money! After what happened to me being attacked i realized i was about to give up my life for money! When i stared death in the eyes of that masked man that struck me with hammer several times. I believe the only thing that saved me, was giving up what they wanted so bad after telling him I have a granddaughter who needs me more then i need this money. I did not know that those words of my love for her over the love of money saved my life! T he man then left and his helpers followed.I THEN PRAYED AND GOD SENT ME AN ANGEL! PRAYER WILL BRING YOU WHATEVER YOU NEED !BELIEVE IT AMEN!!!!!!!

That is very true rj....goodnews you are going to be Blessed as long as you give cheerfully..and not grudgingly..you have to leave that between the person and God, you will get your reward regardless, because you were willing to give a sacrificial Blessing, and money is a sacrifice, but no one can ever out give God...just something to think about, if you have it to give just pray about it and give...Love in Christ..<3

I was bitter when i came on this site; seems to me many of us lack the trust and faith we claim to have .HOPE is the anchor of the soul presumption is the worst answer to this as God sees the good when we love him and trust in HIM WITH OUR WHOLE HEART ,MIND, AND SOUL! WHEN WE GIVE KEEP THIS IN MIND! DO NOT BE ON THE FENCE! EVEN IF YOU FEEL THAT PERSON MAY DO WRONG WITH THE GIFT WE MUST HAVE MERCY! THE REASON EVENTUALLY THEIR IS SORROW FOR THE WRONG AND THEN JUSTICE THAT LEADS TO ULTIMATE FORGIVENESS! YOU SEE YOU DID YOUR DEED! GODBLESS ALL!!!!!!! RJ LEONARD

Ok I understand goodnews..and the gas card was from last year when I posted a wish on wish upon a hero..that is only time I mentioned a gas card, and it was to annie, not you.. you mention that to me, but said it had to be given to me after I completed 5 hours of volunteer work, but I don't have it...sorry..does not mean I don't care, because anyone who knows me knows the deep love I have for people and their souls and needs. I understand you have been hurt and so has my family, but I still give...and unlike scammers, I have proof of past due bills, car needing fixed..etc..I came in here asking for prayer and then asking for prayer for my daughter..I don't have no money..we live on foodstamps, which we can prove that also, we are trying to help ourselves, but if God sends someone to us with help we would not look a gifted horse in the mouth..God Bless!
