Do let me know I can help with this. Can you give me the details? It should not be too late to add to these lists.

Your PM response...

I realize they need help, did not think it was a scam. I am very close to Mr. Orrock the elected representative for part of Spotsy and Caroline where I am also an elected rep. I also know the others who represent Spotsy only not as well. Is the family in Southern Spotys? The other route I can go is with Congressman Wittman who is a very close personel friend. This can be taken care of with a polite phone call to the right agencies. It is not acceptable what you were told. A phone number would help and also the agencies who have been contacted.

As of 12/22/07, I have not heard from you. I have sent several PM messages w/o a response. These children were really in need. We thought help would be coming based on the above PM message you sent me. Why didnt you respond by saying it was nothing you could do??? Why did you have me beliving you was willing to help. Two days away from X-Mas and these kids have NOTHING!

Thanks for nothing!

That's rather rude. It wasn't like Christmas was a surprise. It comes every year on the same date and every year you are on here with someone who needs help so it isn't like you are unaware of their need in early December when the charities are taking names. While it would be wonderful if she can get you some assistance, but getting rude like that is uncalled for.

I don't buy it any more today than yesterday. But let me say this; if someone out there needs help, this isn't the way to get it. Posting the PM is inappropriate, and against the rules. But in reading it, it looks like oharascarlett was looking for more info, at least more specific info in order to get the right people on the case. Or is that something the needy feels no responsibility for either?

thanks for all of the negative comments.. furthermore, when the went to sign up thru Social Services, they were told no more names could be added. No, I am not on here every year doing the same thing, asking for assistance. I adopted a family myself but could not afford to do another. What did you do?? other than sit and your computer looking fat,dumb and stupid!

So whose fault is it that they waited too long to get on the list? And if you look through your posts you would see that you are on here asking for help every year.

BTW, I took a family in need to Social Services in time for them to get on the lists. I helped get them to the pick up on that day and have watched the kids without getting paid so she can work.
