    I like that idea as well ((TG)) I think it would be great if the 'Sons' fund concept could be used ongoing to help other 'sons'.

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

    News... I just got off the phone with Mr. Dawkins at the IOJ.

    Apparently when we started our original quest last fall, 'Diane' was being given assistance through the Halfway Tree Youth Centre... and has since moved from that area.

    I've provided him with (Q's) number... so Q listen for that phone to ring (I just left you a message). Mr. Dawkins will speak with the people at the Halfway Tree Youth Centre and see if they can track 'Diane' and the family... and hopefully resolve this matter today.

    A positive attitude might not solve your problems but will annoy others to make it worth the effort

    Knowing Jamaicans here is what I think is happening the People at the IOJ with other persons reading the story helped this lady out.
    The lady having no cause to think that she would be getting anything else has found a spot to live, picked up her business activity and has gotten back into the daily grind as best she can.

    I don't think she would necessarily be calling the IOJ daily to seek funds and the IOJ having to deal with their mission possibly had no time to actively keep up with her, so she has fallen off the radar.

    Hopefully we can locate her and will be able to add this little help to whatever she is able to do for herself.

    Now all is not loss if we allow ourselves one more month to actively locate her and we cannot then with the members here we can kick the funds into another area of need.

    It is not easy to help people in Jamaica because of all the red tape, the broken post office and difficulty of moving around especially in certain areas. Q or Mr. Smith cannot just walk into certain neighbourhoods asking about this family.

    I suggest that if we don't find her in two weeks we send a letter to the editor and try a Bawl Out on Laing and Company (that about all that 3 hour of trash is good for anyway).

    There is a story here that will illustrate just how difficult it is to organize and help needy people in Jamaica unless you are a big registered charity like Food For the Poor:

    ((TG))) Sad to see people trying to help people... and having such great difficulty... even more sad that those who really need the assistance have such difficulty to receive.

    Discouraging... but lets keep positive... we either find her in time and get the funds to her.. or we reroute them to someone equally in need....

    Well it is not such a bad thing if the reason why we cannot find her is because she is doing well, but I suspect that even if she has made some forward progress she could use our little help.
