Default for liz of nj and charlie

as most of us have now heard, liz and charlie have lost almost everything in a fire.

we all ask what we can do. the easiest way to help them get their lives together is to help them get 'stuff'. i can't think of an easier way to get 'stuff' than amazon.com. that way the selection is theirs.

so i am suggesting that everyone go to amazon.com and get gift certificates. email certificates would be best and to maintain liz's privacy i will give you the email address that is public. certificates can be gotten from $5 to $5000.

please go to www.amazon.com and the email to send it to is dine@dinearuba.com

for those of you who use multiple boards. please copy and paste this thread for me at the other boards so that all contributions will go to one place instead of little ones being scattered.

thank you!

thanks princess.

you know, i have done a lot of soul searching over the last 18 hours. i didn't really sleep very well last night. nothing new there but at least this time i had a reason. this incident happening to someone that not only is one of the nicer people i know but one i truly consider a friend has put a lot in perspective for me. those little things i complain about during the day suddenly seem a lot smaller. even the fairly large complaints (hell, i am married, right?) seem insignificant.

we hear about these things on the news and wish we could help. this time it isn't a stranger. it is someone who writes menus by hand and helps with photos, researched info for so many people including myself, and basically spends her days working to help anyone and anything she can.

so, we can't bring life back to where it was before yesterday, but possibly we can in some ways bring it to a better future because now she and charlie will realize we are more than friends--we are extended family.

let's see how much we can do. we do if for strangers every time we contribute to something. today we have a friend in trouble.

Sherry: Good idea. Before I read this thread I suggested making a donation to the Aruba SPCA on behalf of Liz for her Pet Family.

not a bad idea at all ebb, but at this moment liz might need us even more than the little ones do. for those of you who have enough money to share though, that could be a great idea.

ebb, can you post the link for me please? i know i have it but i can't seem to locate it without liz to help me. chris, if you get on here first could you post it?

That is just terrible news! I sent a gift card and I hope it can help in some way. My friend lost everything in a house fire (including pets) and she didn't have insurance. Seeing what she went through was just terrible so my heart aches for Liz and Charlie.

Thumbs up Re: for liz of nj and charlie

Sherry thanks for starting this, hopefully you've begun a movement that becomes something we can all be proud of

That's Liz in a nutshell right there. Her help to others has been immeasurable (unmeasurable? without a way to measure!!), and that includes us mods.
