    Kumba1 and Jaith I have sent an email to the gleaner seeking to get the email of the author of the article. So we will see how it goes!

    Good.....and thanks, I don't think we need much more than that, she said she needs JA$10000. Anyway I am still waiting on an answer from the editor. I am thinking when we are able to go forward to have the money sent to X-Man and let him donate it in the name of Jamaicans.Com-Marcia!

    Re: ASTON is a 15-year-old with a vicious temper

    TG a very good topic. I know too well the plight of mothers like her, but I too have been in situations where I have given money to start chicken farms, arts/craft, clothing for tourist industry, crochet, etc - I have seen 10s of thousands of US Dollars go down the drain on a lot of Dianes, so be careful. Once she gets that money, you or anyone dare not ask for account of what she is doing or did with it. Been there - and it is not pretty. Diane is far better than a lot of others we have tried to help over the years and to-date we have nothing to show for it - except for that empty feeling you get when you have been jilted by a sad story.

    I wish this Diane person all the best and her children too - but whatever you decide to do to assist her - do it with an open mind - and do not get your hopes up too high.

    some months ago there was a similar case and MarieK had posted the info on the board and others came up with the idea of helping, Marie got info from the Jamaican paper and members were very interested in giving, but the plan did not come true as one member spread propoganda on her that she Marie was looking the funds for herself - Ah sah, [img]/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] anyhow wish you luck you may be able to pull this one through

    I like the idea of donating the money in the name of JA.com-Marcia. It was something I was considering but I wasn't sure what the reaction would be to using Marcia's name. But I am sure with her love for Jamaica, she would not object.

    Re: ASTON is a 15-year-old with a vicious temper

    Zeko , I've also been there many times giving support to individuals in Africa. Some make good use of the support, others use and abuse it. I did initially get angry, but then reality set in. Some you can help some you can't, but I am willing to take a chance. If this lady wastes this opportunity, then what have we lost. Not very much financially, perhaps some loss of faith in human nature, but the next person can give that back. Time is the master and we will not know unless we try.

    Leonie, I did wonder what the problem was with MarieK. This is sad that a person can be defamed for trying to help another. Bad minded people or what?
