Sos Need Help

Recommended Posts

Markham

And BTW, whatever happend to the thought somone had a few months ago of starting some kind of fund to be able to help folks in need like this.

From my months of reading I would think that most of the people living there on quite wealthy, while there are many like us who have enough to live fairly comfortably while being able to stick aside a little for emergency and to help others a little.

At any rate it is nice to see people responding to a need like this-it wouldnt take many giving just a little to make a HUGE difference.

 

I believe your referring to the Expats Mutual Assistance Fund I proposed last year. If you read that topic you might get some idea of the problems involved. This did not go ahead for various reasons, not least of which was the fulfilling the legal requirements of having a predominantly Filipino Board which didn't sit too well with some members.

I'll watch this thread and if a way comes up that a PayPal account can receive any donations, then I can do something.

I don't do XOOM.COM

 

Take care God be with you, Jeff and Ritz. You're going through extreme bad times

Well just because it didnt sit well with "some" members, does that mean that we cant find enough members to do it anyway. My personal opinion is that enough people really would LIKE to give, then a way can be found to do this.

Of course the key word is IF.

I couldnt use Xoom in the matter we are now discussing, so I just went to a place where I could use Western Union.

Im just saying IF there really is a will, then I KNOW there are enough knowledgeable people living in Cebu(the Visayas)

to make it happen.

JMHO

If people are interested in making donations, while bank to bank is certainly an option, as it PayPal, if he has it, if in country, monies can be sent via M Lhuillier Money Transfer or LBC. I have used both ways in the past and they are cheaper than Western Union.

I received a text message from Ritz Dodson yesterday saying that her hip bone operation will be done today. She expressed her big gratitude for all the people who are used by God to make it possible......YOU GUYS!

 

Please we will pray for a successful operation for Ritz Dodson! Thank you.

Jeff and Ritz here...

 

Wanted to thank all that helped with prayer and some donations...

 

I put up our house in Bohol as collateral and took a private loan... and with the prayers and donations that we received, we had JUST enough to get her prosthesis and she is in the OR as I write this note... her meds will run 6500 a week and of course we will still be presented the hospital bill. God has been good and he will help us find a way...

 

I would have posted earlier but Gingoog and the wonderful black outs have had the internets knickers in a twist and has been in and out the past two days...

 

God bless and thanks to all who helped... words alone can not express the heart felt thanks that we have for all of you...

 

Jeff and Ritz

 

I am neither a christian, conservative nor american but if you have paypal I will kick in a $100 for your wife fellar

 

 

Good on you Keith.

This is my first time here but had chip in cos I too have Multiple Myeloma and its a bastard of a thing. I am lucky being in Australia with excellent service but this poor lady will be gioing through hell. I have had kemo (VAD) and stem cell harvesting ready for transplant shortly. This is amazing treatment but would be costly in the Fils. Can someone check out these people and if they're legit, lets get in and help this lady. Perhaps a bank there could be approached to accept transfers on their behalf.

God bless and thanks to all who helped... words alone can not express the heart felt thanks that we have for all of you... a close knit family like we have here and on the CDO and G! groups is a wonderful thing... It's good to know that even though some can not afford to get out and meet all of us, we respond like a family should and help each other... Again your help and prayers bring tears to the eyes and we thank you all so very much...

 

Jeff and Ritz

 

Ps... I will post and let you know how the operation went...

Just to let it be known, I have known Jeff through other Yahoo Groups we are on, together. I have met him and spent time talking with him in person.

 

I don't know if that will help, Jeff, but I at least I can be a character witness for you.

 

Seems quite a few members interested in helping Jeff, has anyone news where a donation can be made to? I think what we need is a bank account number if it is allowed to posted on here.

 

 

All the best Jeff and hope it works out for the best.

 

You can go on line to Xoom.com and deposit directly into Ritz's and My bankaccount...

 

 

The name of the bank isBDO (banco de oro) it is in the city of Gingoog

 

 

I have two accounts, oneis pesos and one is dollar you can send pesos.... xoom will convert the USDollars to Pesos...

 

 

They will require my nameand address:

 

 

Jeffrey Lynn Dodson

 

Pk1, Brgy23

 

Gingoog City, MisamisOriental

 

Mindanao 9014

 

 

Just in case my phonenumber if they ask is +0639266495454 from the US and 09266495450 locally
