... it feels good to help!
hello I am new here, not really sure how it works but i noticed that there were sever post similar to what I need, I am a single, disabled mother of two girls 9 and 14. my 14 yearold was chosen to participate in the people to people student ambassador program, she would be traveling next summer(2007) for 20 days from france to casablanca, but i have no idea how i am going to be able to come up with exactly $5924, this is an opportunity of a life time for her and i am losing it not know how i am going to do this. all her friends are getting pregnant and do everything i can to keep her out f trouble, she is a god girl but i fear if i can't make a way for her she will try to find her own way
I was just looking at a pledge page and it made me sad that no one helped. I have $7.65 in my checking account right now ,and if i pledged something , the bank will take a fee out of my account and probable make me go in the minus column. When I get more money , I am going to start pledging. Imagine if 100 of us "poor people" were to help by giving 1 dollar how much we could help each other , slowly , step by step , maybe start getting somewhere. Anyway, I will get off my soapbox now holly
Hemommy, there are several problems researching the nonprofit organizations. The first rather significant one is that there isn’t a single free source where one can find information about all of the nonprofits. Aidpage is the ONLY free source that provides partial information on significant number of nonprofits in one place. Grant Gate ® is much more powerful and easier to narrow down the search list. Additionally it provides an application wizard which very helpful, too. Unfortunately, there are only several thousands of organizations in GG database. Another problem researching nonprofits is the format of the base public source of information about them provided by IRS – their tax reports. Yes, that is the public source of information about nonprofits. Unfortunately, IRS provides this reports on a paper or as scanned images only (as of now). So, I think it is not that difficult to imagine the amount of work needed to process hundreds of thousands nonprofits with average of 20 pages each… yearly. Yes, there are errors and yes, this is only scratching the surface, but then again this is the only free public work. In order to be successful with the research one has to make a significant effort. Aidpage and GrantGate® can only help. I would suggest – use both Aidpage and GrantGate® together and once you end up with a list of organizations, follow the links provided on Aidpage to theirs tax reports. Read them carefully and then you will have better idea where to apply. One more thing – don’t be fooled by line a like ‘… we have all sources…’ :-) there is no such place. Good luck!
Groceryhelp, it is not entirely clear what you are referring to when you write ‘…people trying to run a scam…’. If you have in mind some specific incident and you would like to warn the other aidmates, please post details on the Abuse / Warning page (see the link below).

Bettyjo, I’ve read your postings. My way of helping is creating, maintaining, further developing, and keeping free this site. I don’t have immediate solution for your problem but somebody else may be able to help. My friends from the Aidpage team and I are trying to enable as much as possible exactly that. Good luck!

AND OUR LITTLE ANGEL IN HEAVEN, SIERUZ
I have a question, obviously due to my current situation I can not help with money for anyone on the site. But my husband and I have six children between us and there are many clothes that they have out grown, I have all different sizes and would be willing to give them to someone in need. Is there a way to search for specific needs on the site. My husband and I are also very artistic in drawing, painting and taking photos which I would gladly donate my time for any projects the site may need or want done. Please let me know if we can help.
My family and I need help. We owe $500 in rent, $100 in electric, and $50 in gas. We need food, I got a few things from the church a few days ago, but we need more. MY husband was US Air Force and was forced out because of a career change. We have been trying extremely hard to do things on our own, but it seems the harder we try the further down the drain we go. PLease someone please help us. God bless
