nope...PayPal is totally seperate from aidpage....go to www.paypal.com and then it will take you through the steps to set up an account...I can't remember for sure, but I think you might have to have a bank account of some sort (doesn't matter if it's savings or checking and doesn't matter how much you have in the account, cause I think I had $3.23 in mine when I established the paypal account)...hope this helps

I KNOW YOUR DESPERATE......BUT IF YOU HAVE ONE INKLING OF NAGGING THAT IT'S NOT LEGIT....THEN IT ISN'T...I SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH MY INSTINCTS...SOMETHING TOLD ME IT WAS "FISHY"....JUST WANTED TO PASS THIS EXPERIENCE ON...I KNOW IT'S DOWN TO THE WIRE..FROM READING YOUR COMMENTS...BUT THINK ABOUT ALL THOSE YOU ARE BORROWING THAT MONEY FROM...TRUST ME WHEN I SAY...NO-ONE WILL "UNDERSTAND" IF YOU GET SCAMMED WITH THEIR MONEY....MY MOTHER'S BANK ACCOUNT GOT FROZEN WHEN ALL THIS HAPPENED ON MY ACCOUNT...SO IT'S NOT JUST GOING TO BE YOU THAT GETS IN A JAM....WORDS FOR THOUGHT

JUST A HINT....I THINK ST VINCENTS TELLS YOU TO LEAVE A MESSAGE AND A VOLUNTEER WILL GET BACK TO YOU...WAIT NO MORE THAN 2 DAYS AND TRY AGAIN....YOU HAVE TO BE PERSISTENT...I THINK THEY ARE ALL VOLUNTEERS...SO THEY DO THIS ON THEIR OWN TIME (AFTER WORK, ETC.)SO JUST KEEP CALLING UNTIL YOU GET A RESPONSE....THEY WILL HELP OR ADVISE YOU ANOTHER CHURCH (IF YOUR NOT IN THEIR AREA) THAT WILL....YOUR WELCOME...I KNOW IT'S NOT MUCH...WISH I COULD HELP MORE

I don't know what part of Florida you live in but I'm from Tampa and I have gotten one time assistance from the St. Vincent DePaul Society...they paid one full month's rent for me when I was temporarily unemployed...also the Lee Davis Foundation...helps w/a portion of your rent and utilities (they will make an agreement w/Teco to keep you from getting shut off also)...I don't know if your eligible for food stamps Medicaid for your children or not but that would be another avenue to check out....but the first two agencies I named are real good helping people out of a short term jam.....

HELP-My child and I can not be without power

Dear Worried--- Have you tried any of the Catholic Churches in the area? I'm not sure where you live...so I was unable to look it up myself....but alot of Catholic churches help w/ONE time help situations....also your local Family and Children Services should have some sort of Electric/Gas program that will help you out one time a year.....Worse comes to worse...get out the yellow pages and start calling ALL the churches in your area...you'll have to explain your situation over and over again...but I can almost bet if you do this you will find someone that can help or can direct you to some help.

For the dilemma I'm in w/my license...agencies like that will not provide assistance for these kind of issues...they deal w/rent, utilities, food, etc. but thanks

Single Mother With Children's Birthdays Coming Soon

Winter: Your daughters are very beautiful indeed. Just a thought...does your county or city have a back-to-school program where they give out free backpacks full of school supplies?? I know that is just a minor issue but it would be one less thing to worry about. Also you may want to check out the homepage of "Who Knew" she is a very resourceful individual and may be able to point out some other resources....Don't give up....I did the same thing....went to school on government funds w/2 young children...you won't regret it when you do finally finish...it is a great accomplishment.

re:familyhealthhelp In Amy's defense...I have seen and participated in a prescription advocacy program much like the one she describes....but in Indiana and we never paid a registration fee...which she did kind of explain.....it seems since you are running this program that there should be some kind of funding available to you for postage expenses...one would think anyway.
