    Is there any way to get a counter going on the front page for this? I think it's pretty important to help out and having a way for people to see how we're doing as a community would be great! Best of luck to PLAR and family!

    Being a young family has challenges all its own, but to be facing them with so little resources, and to face impossible odds time and again is frustrating beyond belief. Because they are working, they dont qualify for assistance, including child care subsidy. Shelters and such wont help them either, because they are an "intact family".

    I've been throwing website referrals to him for over a year, and do my best to give them whatever resources I can. I encourage everyone to throw any donation you can to them, above and beyond what you enter in the raffle.
    What city is he in and what is his employment expertise?

    Since he has his old location in his profile, I'll go ahead and answer this (some people get upset about personal details on the internets, why I checked). He's in Baltimore, MD, and from my talking with him, I believe his primary experience is in web development and IT support.

    I'll definitely put something towards this once my paycheck goes through tomorrow night...have to consult the budget first to see how much.

    Paypal was just the most convenient way to track who has donated and how much. I can imagine we can come up with something else, just not sure what yet. Maybe a deposit into his bankaccount, or western union? Not sure what would work out the best.

    You could always just mail a check. That'd definitely be cheaper than Western Union.

    I saw this pop up on facebook earlier this week and knew I had to do something. I have a friend and their family in a similar situation so I know how hard it can be. I have been selling some stuff off on eBay lately so I am all cashed up and ready to donate.

    I hope everything works out.

    Yes, that is correct!

    Thanks to everyone who is stepping up and helping out!

    If anyone here is in the Baltimore area, and can donate furniture or household items, please either let myself or PLAR (Shane) know.

    BTW, if anyone does want to reach him, I've noticed that he responds a lot faster on his MSN messenger account than PMs here. I'm pretty sure me and Altec are the only other members in the area, but you never know.
