ON BEING PREGNANT AND SINGLE

 

Here is a new site , that precludes many of the other single mom sites. Why ?

Because it starts with the single woman who is pregnant .

No matter why you are single and pregnant , support is important. Here is a place to start :

you and me kid
 

This website and online community is geared for women who find themselves alone during pregnancy and after the birth of their child. Whether it's by choice or by circumstances beyond our control, ( a loss of a partner due to breakups, death or separated by distance) we all have one thing in common- we are single and pregnant or single mothers, and looking for information and support on bringing up healthy, well-adjusted children.

"And with all that we make friends. We laugh, cry, get upset with each other and make up. We are the community  of single  parents and that is our main objective. That IS our business, so to speak.

We have single moms, single dads and older children of single parents. We are about making it work together, though alone in our homes, with little social lives we have found each other. We are a family amoungst ourselves.

We Are Single Family Voices!

Come share and find the care needed to continue to grow."

ON RAISING YOUNG MEN

 

DO YOU HAVE A YOUNG MAN IN YOUR HOME ?

THIS IS AN IMPORTANT SITE FOR YOU TO KNOW ABOUT.

"CSR is an outgrowth of D.C. Men Against Rape,

founded in 1987 by a handful of men seeking to raise their own and the community's consciousness about men's violence against women. In 1997, MCSR incorporated as a nonprofit organization with the goal of carrying forward and expanding on its original mission to increase men's involvement in efforts to end men's violence.

Now, we are a concerned community of men and women of all ages, from many walks of life, working locally, nationally, and internationally for peace, equity and gender justice. We are men and women who find strength in compassion and nonviolence and who strive to support young men who are courageous enough to challenge the "rape culture" in which we live.

We do not believe men's violence is inevitable.

We believe that rape, battering, and other forms of men's violence are learned behaviors, choices that men make to exert power and control over others that are reinforced by a society that defines manhood through domination.

We believe that men can unlearn these damaging lessons and live peacefully with women and other men. To do so, however, we must redefine what it means to be a man. "-SITE QUOTE

4 MOMS AT HOME DOT COM

 

 

 

This link kind of fits under the stay at home mom category.

 When I first was separated,and then divorced from my ex , I homeschooled my daughter ,and worked. I was blessed to find three different jobs that I could work at and bring my daughter. She was safe , and supervised , but she is a very self motivated and smart kid ,(not my doing , God gave it to her ,and I just worked with it ) and it just worked for us.

My daughter is now in her second year of college on full academic scholarship.

I am not saying homeschooling is right for,  or even feasable for everyone , but it worked for us. So , here is a page for single moms who want to home school their kids. :

SINGLE MOMS WHO HOMESCHOOL

 

 

 

 

Here's an international moms club specifically for stay at home moms :

Goals:
"To provide a support group for mothers who choose to stay at home to raise their children
To provide a forum for topics of interest to mothers
To help children in the community
To perform at least one service project yearly helping needy children

 

Principles:

That women must be free to choose their personal path to fulfillment
That, for women who choose it,
raising children is an important and fulfilling full-time job
That a family's decision for a mother to stay at home to raise the children often involves considerable financial sacrifice
That there is no one right way to raise children, but our members have a common concern in raising their children in a healthful way  "

Talking with Kids About Tough Issues


Raising a child is probably the most gratifying job any of us will ever have -- and one of the toughest. We live in an increasingly complex world that challenges us every day with a wide range of disturbing issues that are difficult for children to understand and for adults to explain. We believe this Web site can help by offering practical, concrete tips and techniques for talking easily and openly with young children ages 8 to 12 about some very tough issues: sex, HIV/AIDS, violence, drugs and alcohol.
 

TALKING WITH KIDS ABOUT TOUGH ISSUES.

 NEW! Talking With Kids About Tough Issues has teamed up for a third year with NBC's award-winning The More You Know campaign in a national initiative to support parent-child communication. This season, The More You Know features top stars from "Scrubs", "Law and Order: SVU" and "The Apprentice" offering tips on effective communication. The PSAs are tagged with the Talking With Kids hotline 1-800-CHILD-44, where parents can request free informational materials by mail.
 

 

FAMILIES AND CHILDREN

 

 

Support for  parents with troubled children of any age

"We help parents deal with drugs, runaways, truancy, verbal and physical abuse, curfew, dress codes and the problem friends. We also handle the aggravating things like messy rooms, chores not being done and low school grades."

"  These problems are in the areas of, but not limited to, ATTITUDE, SUBSTANCE ABUSE, SCHOOL ATTENDANCE, PHYSICAL / VERBAL ABUSE, RUNNING AWAY AND CURFEW."

 

BECAUSE I LOVE YOU SUPPORT GROUP

Are you fighting mad about the way families are treated ?

 Do you have a cause you are passionate about ?

Try this organization !

 

PARENTS TAKE ACTION FOR CHILDREN

A Movement for Families
"Groups as disparate as gun owners, truck drivers and the elderly all have major national organizations that speak for them in Congress and in state legislatures. But what about parents?  Who fights for them and their children?

Parents have primary responsibility for raising their children.  But they can't do it alone. Most parents now hold down at least one job and cope with long working hours, inadequate or expensive child care options, and no paid parental leave. Many have health insurance that doesn't meet their family's needs. Some have no insurance at all. Too often, however, parents feel their problems are personal and unique. As a result, America's 65 million parents have yet to realize their collective might.

Parents' Action for Children provides America's moms and dads with a platform for making their voices heard. We fight to ensure that all children have access to excellent health care and that our schools and communities promote good nutrition and physically active lifestyles.  We believe that quality, affordable early childhood education and after-school programs should be available across the country.  We insist that parents have a voice in combating negative messages that pervade our kids' media-saturated world. And we feel that workplace and economic policies should support strong families and healthy children

We know parents don't have a lot of extra time on their hands, so we make advocacy easy.  With a few quick clicks you can join our movement and register for a free e-mail newsletter of parenting tips and advocacy information, write letters to legislators and sign petitions on issues ranging from junk food in schools to health insurance for all children.

 

 

PARENTS TAKE ACTION FOR CHILDREN

 

 

READING IS IMPORTANT ! ! !

 

I am adding this site because it SO IMPORTANT for our kids to learn to read ,and to read well. It will help them in all parts of their lives for as long as they live.

READING IS FUNDAMENTAL

 

 

 

 

SAFETY ONLINE

 

Here are some sites for you and your children . The goal is to keep everyone safe online. We need to support the safety of our childern as they cruise the net.

 

Here is a program for parents , teens , and youger children. It is called

NETSMARZ .


 

What are our goals?


"The goal of the NetSmartz Workshop is to extend the safety awareness of children to prevent victimization and increase self-confidence whenever they go online.

 


The NetSmartz Workshop teaches children three basic rules for online safety.

I will tell an adult I trust if anything makes me feel scared, uncomfortable, or confused.


I will ask my parents or guardian before sharing my personal information.


I won't meet in person with anyone I have first "met" online.

This one is called GirlsInc.

They even have scholarships that girls can earn , and it is free to join.

How will girls benefit?

"Girls will be able to express themselves through fun activities like creating an avatar, word portrait, or even a comic strip. Educational programs will help girls learn more about health and relationships, the economy and money management, and career opportunities. Girls will be able to learn from each other and professionals with unique careers by participating in live online discussions

 

By actively participating members can earn credits and become eligible for the Motivational Awards Program. The number of credits earned determines the award a member is eligible to apply for; awards include tools that can help girls succeed, such as digital cameras, electronic keyboards, and even scholarships.

Eligibility level, quality of participation in Girls Inc. Online, and an application essay will be used to select the awardees.

How can a girl become a member?

The registration process requires parental consent and also third party verification—from the girl’s school, a local Girls Inc. partner or a notary public. The process was designed to ensure a secure environment for girls only. "-

SKIP THE TOADS !   LOTS OF INFORMATION !

Has information about ALL aspects of parenting , including safety.

"No one's born knowing how to parent. It's okay to ask for help -- and it's smart.

 But there's an overload of information out there, and sometimes you have to kiss a lot of toads before you find the prince. Our goal is to help you skip the toads.

We want you to have the most professional and accurate links (with the most up-to-date and comprehensive information) so that you don't have to slog through the Internet yourself. In the process, hopefully we're helping your child -- and the other children of the world -- be healthier and safer. "

HOW TO GET RID OF YOUR BAGGAGE SO THAT IF YOU WANT TO GET MARRIED AGAIN , YOU CAN START WITH A CLEAN SLATE

 

The title of this section is long , but it is true , unless you get rid of all the negatives from a past marriage , you will be carrying over to a new marriage.

 

Often, we believe that others ought to treat us the way we want them to respond. We may tend to put a relationship on a pedestal expecting more from an interpersonal relationship than it can deliver. Then when others fail to meet our expectations, we feel betrayed, frustrated, and resentful. Albert Ellis, noted psychotherapist has said, "Where is it written that others must act the way we want them to. It may be preferable, but not necessary."

Here is the rest of this article :

 

UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS IN RELATIONSHIPS

 

 

Respect Checklist


Your rights in a relationship:

If you are in a relationship, you must be treated with respect, which means your boyfriend or girlfriend:

 is willing to compromise
 lets you feel comfortable being yourself
 is able to admit to being wrong


 tries to resolve conflict by talking honestly
 enables you to feel safe being with them


 respects your feelings, your opinions and your friends
 accepts you saying no to things you don't want to do (like sex)


 accepts you changing your mind
 respects your wishes if you want to end the relationship


When someone loves you, you feel valued, respected and free to be yourself. You shouldn't be made to feel intimidated or controlled.

 

Think about your relationship - do you feel respected?

CHILD ABUSE

 

This organization has been around fo over 30 years .

"About Us  Since 1972, Prevent Child Abuse America has led the way in building awareness, providing education and inspiring hope to everyone involved in the effort to prevent the abuse and neglect of our nation's children. Working with our chapters, we provide leadership to promote and implement prevention efforts at both the national and local levels. With the help of our state chapters and concerned individuals like you we're valuing children, strengthening families and engaging communities nationwide. "

PREVENT CHILD ABUSE

 

 

 

This site is called STOP IT NOW ! . It is all about learning how to  help keep our kids from sexual abuse.

 KNOWING THE PERCENTAGE OF ABUSERS , IT IS MORE THAN LIKELY THAT THERE MIGHT BE ONE READING THIS RIGHT NOW. GET HELP ! NOW ! BEFORE YOU HURT ANYBODY ELSE.

 

 

Stop It Now!was founded in 1992 by Fran Henry, a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, who recognized that standard ideas about preventing sexual abuse of children weren’t working. Stop It Now! believes that all adults must accept the responsibility to recognize, acknowledge and confront the behaviors that lead to the sexual abuse of children. We offer adults tools they can use to prevent sexual abuse - before there’s a victim to heal or an offender to punish. In collaboration with our network of community-based Stop It Now! programs, we reach out to adults who are concerned about their own or others’ sexualized behavior toward children.

For more than 10 years, our

 national toll-free Helpline (1.888.PREVENT) has provided thousands of adults a unique outlet to confidentially voice their concerns.

We provide support, information and resources that enable individuals and families to keep children safe and to create healthier communities

4 Troubled Teens focuses on the special needs of parents who are struggling with an adolescent, particularly those parents who have teenagers who are at high risk for behavioral, emotional, and academic problems that can affect their ability to succeed in school.

 Parents often find it difficult to identify when a child is at risk for dropping out of school, failing classes, violence, drug or alcohol use, suicide, and other dangerous or self-defeating behaviors. Our goal is to connect parents of troubled teens to the information and resources they need to quickly identify risk factors and take appropriate action to help their adolescents

MENTORING FOR YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER

 

 

Would you like your son or daughter to have someone to mentor them ? Here is a great site.

About MENTOR
From the start I was expected to lose. Everything I have right now is mostly because I defied what the world concluded about me before I could even speak a word in my defense. And my defense is that I am just as capable as any person to do great things. Like you, I think about all the things this world could achieve if only every child was given the right tools. Mentoring is the right tool and it is the way to the American Dream. To everyone here tonight, I hope you will promise to do everything you can to help make mentoring and the American Dream a reality for every child in this city and every other city in the country. It’s their best defense, too. -- Ean Garrett, Mentee at the MENTOR National Recognition Event

MENTOR exists for kids such as Ean Garrett. Like Ean, we believe that mentoring is a powerful tool for helping kids succeed in life. Our mission is to connect kids with the power of mentoring.

What We Do
For more than a decade, MENTOR/National Mentoring Partnership has been working to expand the world of quality mentoring. MENTOR believes that,
with the help and guidance of an adult mentor, each child can discover how to unlock and achieve his or her potential.

MENTOR DOT ORG.

 

 

Here is another well known mentoring program. They have great results for kids ,and they have them documented.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

helps children reach their potential through professionally supported one-to-one relationships with proven results.
You can get involved today by volunteering or by making a donation.


Bigs and Littles have fun together — and create memories that last a lifetime. We call it “Little moments … Big magic.”

Research on our volunteer programs points to the powerful, positive, lasting impact Bigs have on children’s lives.

Littles are:

52% less likely to skip school
46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs
More likely to get along with their families and peers


BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS.

 

Another place to look for mentors is through your church . My daughter had a wonderful woman as a mentor who helped her get through many worries that she had about my divorce. I am so glad she had someone to go to when she felt uncomfortable asking me things.It is important to be able to ask a mentor if you don't want to ask something of a parent. It could be the child doesn't want to hurt your feelings about a matter , or it could be that you are so busy trying to survive that you are not able to handle the questions of your child. Either way , do not be offended that they don't bring everything to you . Instead , be happy that your child's needs are being met.

GRANTS FOR SINGLE MOTHERS

 

 

Another organization that helps with finances is Modest Needs Here is some information from their site :

The Modest Needs® Mission

Modest Needs exists:

To prevent otherwise financially self-sufficient individuals and families from entering the cycle of poverty, when this might be avoided with a small amount of well-timed financial assistance;

To restore the financial self-sufficiency of individuals who are willing to work but are temporarily unable to do so because they do not have the means to remit payment for a work-related expense; and

To empower permanently disadvantaged individuals who otherwise live within their limited means to continue to live independently, despite a temporary, unexpected financial set-back.

In keeping with its mission, Modest Needs offers the following three types of grants

 

 

Self-Sufficiency Grants


Modest Needs makes Self-Sufficiency Grants by remitting payment to a creditor / for an expense on behalf of an otherwise self-sufficient individual or family for a relatively small, emergency expense which the individual or family could not have anticipated or prepared for. In making a Self-Sufficiency Grant, our goal is to prevent an otherwise self-sufficient individual or family from entering the cycle of poverty as a result of the financial burden posed by a relatively small emergency expense. For example, we might make a Self-Sufficiency Grant to cover the cost of an emergency auto repair that must be made if an individual is to continue working.

 

 

Back-to-Work Grants


Modest Needs makes Back-to-Work grants by remitting payment for a small work-related fee or expense on behalf of a temporarily unemployed individual. In making a Back-to-Work grant, our goal is to provide a willing but temporarily unemployed individual with the means to return to work. For example, we might make a Back to Work grant to cover the cost of a professional license renewal for a temporarily displaced worker.

 

 

Independent Living Grants


Modest Needs makes Independent Living Grants by remitting payment to a creditor / for an expense on behalf of persons who are permanently unable to work but who nevertheless are living independently on the limited income to which they are entitled - their retirement income, or their permanent disability income, for example. In making an Independent Living Grant, our goal is to empower financially responsible persons who cannot work to continue to live independently on their limited incomes, despite an unexpected expense which no conventional agency is prepared to address. For example, we might make an Independent Living Grant to cover the cost of maintenance on a piece of accessibility equipment not covered by Medicaid, to cover an unexpectedly large prescription medication co-pay, or to assist with a large summer cooling bill.

Every hour of every day, someone in the United States needs essential services - from finding an after-school program to securing adequate care for a child or an aging parent. Faced with a dramatic increase in the number of agencies and help-lines, people often don't know where to turn. In many cases, people end up going without these necessary services because they do not know where to start. 2-1-1 helps people find and give help.

While services that are offered through 2-1-1 vary from community to community, 2-1-1 provides callers with information about and referrals to human services for every day needs and in times of crisis.

PHONE HELP

 

It is really important to have a form of communication in order to get the help you need. Here is a program that will help you pay for a phone service.

Check it out to see if you qualify !

 

Overview of the Low Income Program.

 . Lifeline, Link Up, and Toll Limitation Service (TLS) support provide discounts that make basic, local telephone service more affordable for more than 7 million Americans. Approximately 1,700 telephone companies are eligible to provide these discounts. Consumers apply for the discounts through their local telephone company. These companies are then reimbursed through the Low Income Program of the Universal Service Fund for the revenue they forgo by providing discounted service to eligible consumers.

I am searching right now for assistance programs for a friend of mine. she is a single mother, only 20 yrs old, the babys father is a dead beat who is not in the picture and not paying any type of support. her son was born 2 1/2 months premature via emergency csection because he was having in-uterine strokes. he was only 2 lbs and its a miracle he's even alive. Due to the strokes he has some brain damage, the extent to which can not be determined fully till he is older ( he's 11 months old now and only 12 lbs) he is 100% blind, and has recently been diagnosed with CP. they also believe he may be epileptic as well but needs further testing to confirm the diagnosis. Due to the newly realized severity of his disabilities his doctors have recommended round the clock 24 hour care for him. My friend has to quit her job to care for him. the problem is if she quits her job she can not support them and they have no support network or family to rely on. She is getting a disability check for him but it is only 600 a month, she also receives food stamps, WIC and medicare, however 600 a month is simply not enough to keep him in diapers, and keep the bills paid. I want so desperately to help her but just don't know what to do. I am trying to find ANY programs out there that can help for a single parent of a disabled child who requires constant care. If anyone knows of any programs that I can refer her to apply for PLEASE email me the info for the program. My email address is shaina81@yahoo.com

Nurse Antoinette

Please Help Me....I am a single mom...a registered nurse and in financial crisis b/c of going through a divorce. I am a home care nurse taking care of a veteran with Advanced Lou Gehrigs disease. I no longer have a car to get to him. B/c of what is going on with my divorce I have bad credit and no money to put down on a car. I need to continue to care for my patient. He is on a ventilator..and I am always struggling with his insurance companies to get the supplies he needs. This is a wonderful family and it is sad to say that other nurses will not advocate and write to the insurance companies and help the family with all these aspects of care. There has to be someone who has a reliable car that perhaps has just been sitting in their driveway. This is just the tip of the iceberg. My patient served on the USS John Paul Jones for several years..he is only 70y/o on a ventaltor and feeding tube. He needs agressive chest therapy to prevent pnumonia and beside the fact that the insurance company refuses to pay for necessary respiratory supplies I constantly am fighting for them as well as the fact..that as unfortunate has it seems the other nurses tend not to give him the aggressive chest therapy I do and the number one cause of death with this disease is Pnumonia. Please help us.

I was a single mom at the end of my rope. From: Terri Print this now for your future reference. The Blueprint that has produced millionaires!!!! Make money Quickly, Easily and Honestly Discover how you can turn $6 in to $6,000 + within weeks and with a little bit of effort. This really can make you easy money!!!! It really works!!! Thanks to the computer age, and the internet, you could be a millionaire within a year!!!! If you are a working father, a working mother, a struggling single mother or a working student, anyone who would like to make at least $500.00 from the comfort of your home, please read the letter below. Then read it again and again. It contains important information and instructions that can help you achieve financial relief and a way out from under all those bills within a year!! Dear Reader, No matter what you do for a living – whether you are a doctor, a teacher, a salesman, a carpenter – do you find yourself thinking, “there must be a better way, simpler way?” There is… I finally found it! I’ve seen many ways to make money, but this one is ideal. It requires no inventory, no employees, no permit or license. There is no face to face selling, no phone calls to make, no orders to process. And best of all it’s 100% legal and the profits one can make are truly unbelievable!! Please read the following real life story below: Parents of a 15 year old find $71,000 cash hidden in his closet. His mother was cleaning and putting laundry away when she came across a large brown bag that was suspiciously buried beneath some clothes and a skateboard in the back of her 15 year old son’s closet. Nothing could have prepared her for the shock she got when she opened the bag and found it was full of cash. Five dollar bills, twenties, fifties and hundreds – all neatly rubber-banded in labeled piles. “My first thought was that he had robbed a bank,” says the 41-year-old woman, “There was over $71,000 dollars in that bag – that’s more than my husband earns in a year.” The woman immediately called her husband at the car dealership where he worked to tell him what she had discovered. He came home right away, and they drove together to the boy’s school and picked him up. Little did they suspect that where the money came from was more shocking than actually finding it in the closet. As it turns out, the boy had been sending out, via e-mail, a type of “report” to E-mail addresses that he obtained off the Internet. Everyday after school for the past two months, he had been doing this right on his computer in his bedroom. “I just got the email one day and I figured what the heck, I put my name on it like the instructions said and I started sending it out,” says the clever 15 year old. The email letter listed 5 addresses and contained instructions to send one $5.00 bill to each person on the list, then delete the address at the top and move the other addresses down, and finally add your name to the top of the list. The letter goes on to state that you would receive several thousand dollars in five dollar bills within two weeks if you sent out the letter with your name at the top of the 5 address list. “I get junk email all the time, and really did not think it was going to work,” the boy continues. Within the first few days of sending out the email, the post office box that his parents had gotten him for his video game magazine subscriptions began to fill up with not magazines but envelopes containing $5 bills. “About a week later I rode [my bike] down to the post office and my box had 1 magazine and about 300 envelopes stuffed in it. There was also a yellow slip that said I had to go up to the [post office] counter and they had a whole box of more mail for me. I had to ride back home and empty out my backpack because I could not carry it all.” Over the next few weeks, the boy continued sending out the email. “The money just kept coming in and I just kept sorting it and stashing it in the closet, barely had time for my homework.” He began to exchange the fives for larger bills, riding to several different banks to avoid suspicion. In fact the boy did not have anything to fear. It was completely legal according to US Postal and Lottery Laws, Title 18, Section 1302 and 1341, or Title 18, Section 3005 in the US code, also in the code of federal regulations, Volume 16, Sections 255 and 436, which state a product or service must be exchanged for money received. Does this story sound familiar? You most likely have seen this story featured on a major nightly news program, 20/20 and Oprah, or you may have read about it in the Wall Street Journal. You may have seen this business many times before and ignored it. I know I did – many times. I thought, this can’t be this easy, but then I thought, what about my life has been easy? Maybe all the struggle in my life has brought me to this point. This is my redemption. After all it’s just people helping each other out. Isn’t that what this world needs more of? We all waste money everyday. $6.00 will hardly buy a meal at a fast food restaurant these days. Isn’t it worth it to just see if this works? What have you got to lose? It’s only $6.00 and it could be $6,000!!!!! Believe me no matter where those feelings are coming from, follow them. You know you’re thinking right now. This could work, but NOOO, it can’t possibly work. But there’s no way it can’t if you follow the instructions later in this post to the “letter,” no pun intended. Success in this business is now fast, easy and well within the capabilities or ordinary people who know a little about Internet marketing. And the earnings potential is truly staggering! This business, like every other business requires input before any output can be realized, but the amount required is so little and cannot equal the profits one can make. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, your nationality, your level of education, your gender, your IQ, whether you are young or old. As long as you can read and follow simple steps, there is no way you can’t succeed in this business. There are NO LOSERS in this program/this business. Every one who joins this program and follows it to the letter (exactly) becomes a winner. Read this letter to the end and follow what it says, and there is no way you cannot succeed! This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions. You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business your product is not solid and tangible, it’s a service. You are in the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from people like you and me asking to be included in that list. “But it sounds too easy.” That’s healthy skepticism. You should always investigate before you jump into anything..It is absolutely legal. Simply because you are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it…There are absolutely no laws prohibiting participation in the program. Controversial? Sure. Illegal? No way! This program is legal simply because you are exchanging money for a service, this simple request makes it 100% legal. If people can follow the simple instructions, they are bound to make mega bucks with only $6.00 out of pocket cost. If you are still not convinced, and you have any questions regarding the legality of this program/this business, contact the office of the Associate Director of Marketing practices, Federal Trade commission, Bureau of consumer protection in Washington D. C. or you can check it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161) I’m guessing that this is at least the second time you have read about this program and you are shrugging it off once again as another SCAM. I know because I have done the same thing, but give it a try this time. It’s only $6.00, the cost of a cheeseburger at a good restaurant. This program/this business really works, no matter what you hear other skeptics say about it. It’s not a SCAM. It’s not a hoax, and people who are participating in it are not stupid or gullible. And you know what keeps it alive and going? It’s because of all the honest, smart people out there who believe in it and want to help each other. THIS PROGRAM IS ABOUT PEOPLE HELPING EACH OTHER MAKE MONEY HONESTLY AND LEGALLY. If you want to find out how this works, simply read the REST of this page. Get out from under that mound of bills and maybe have a little money to take your kids on that vacation that you’ve done without because you just can’t afford it! Give it a try! There’s nothing to lose except $6.00. That’s all! Ten Years of Success! This program is by no means new. It has been in existence in many forms for at least a decade. But in the early days, it required a lot more time and effort, as well as stamps, envelopes to buy and stuff with money and send to recipients through mail. As you may already know, putting your home address on the internet sending envelopes with money through the mail can be risky. However, thanks to the computer age and the Internet, this program has been automated. In fact, it’s safer now than before. No need to buy stamps, envelopes or send money through mail anymore. All you need is either a StormPay account or a PayPal account(you decide which you want, they both work relatively the same.) and an email address. Hear from some other people who have already done this: Please read the following testimonials: “Thanks to this profitable opportunity. This program has been around for a long time, but I never believed in it. But I wondered if I should have given it a try. I am glad I finally joined, just to see what one could expect in return from the minimal effort and money required. Within 7 days, I started getting money in my stormpay account! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about $20.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total over $1200.00!!! In the third week I had over $10,000.00. In my fourth week, I had made a total of just over $36,000.00 and it’s still coming rapidly. It’s certainly worth $6.00.” “Not being the gambling type, it took me several weeks to make up my mind to participate in the program. But conservative that I am, I decided that the initial investment was so little that there was no way that I wouldn’t make enough money to at least get my money back. First month, I only made $240.00, but the next 2 months after that I made a total of $219,000.00. There simply isn’t a better investment with a faster return and so big.” It’s your turn now! Let’s get started! Getting started is as easy as 1,2,3. Please follow the simple steps below exactly to guarantee your success. Your Success Steps (Instructions): Step #1 You must have a confirmed StormPay account or PayPal account. Signing up for a StormPay or PayPal account is absolutely FREE and easy. It takes only a couple of minutes. The CHEAPEST, FASTEST and EASIEST way to make serious money online. If you do not have a StormPay or PayPal account you can go to www.StormPay.com or www.paypal.com and follow the instructions to set up a FREE account. In order to place the initial $6.00 into your account, you will have to confirm your bank account with either of these two services. This may take a few days. You can also use your credit card with both of these companies. They both let you pay anyone in the world from anywhere in the world with an email address. They are considered the safe way to pay over the internet as they both keep your accounting and credit card information safe and secure. Both are far more secure than giving a check or your credit card info over the internet. Step #2 The first thing to do when you have your StormPay or PayPal account is you must send a $1.00 payment to each email on the below list with a note saying “ Please add me to your list.” or else those 6 people will not add you to their list, therefore you will not make any money. (Exception: Send $1.00 to the first email on the list saying, “Thanks I’ve joined.”) This let’s the first person keep track of progress of the letter and continue to post more. To do this successfully, follow these simple steps: 1. Login to StormPay or PayPal account and click on the “make payment” or “send money” tab. 2. In the “Recipient’s email” field, enter the recipient email address of each on the list of 6 below. You must make a separate payment for each. 3. In the “Amount” field, enter $1.00 (this is your $1 payment) 4. In the type field, select service 5. In paypal you will enter the following items on the next page as you continue Make the subject of the payment “Email List” and in the notes or comment field, write “PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR EMAIL LIST” This is VERY IMPORTANT! (by law we must exchange a product or service for money. Be certain to add this note, as this is what keeps this program legal. This is not a gifting program. 6. Finally, click on the button to complete the payment. That’s it! Do not start posting to newsgroups, message boards..etc. before you send $1.00 to each email that is listed below. This is extremely important if you want this system to work FOR YOU! If you think you can get around this system by only posting with your email in the #6 slot and not sending payment to anyone, you are cheating the system and it will not work for anyone including you. If you think that putting yourself first on the list will make things work faster you will end up being eliminated almost immediately by the people who are following the instructions. GREED never comes of any good in the end. Please follow this and be HONEST and we will all profit. Let’s HELP each other! If you do this the way it was designed, by the time your name reaches the top, it will be on thousands of lists therefore letting your fortune grow gradually. Here is the latest email list: 1. lidi@pakistani.com 2. rash1erge@topmail.kz 3. irk-i@bk.ru 4. bira@netmail.kg 5. max7@mbadesk.com 6. TwoOz4me@msn.com IN www.StormPay.com or www.PayPal.com Subject of Payment: Email List Comments/Note: PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR EMAIL LIST Step #3 Now take the #1 email off the list you see above, move the other addresses up one place (#6 becomes #5, #4 becomes #3 and so on), then put YOUR email address (the one used in your StormPay or PayPal account) as #6 on the list. MAKE SURE THE EMAIL YOU SUPPLY IS EXACTLY AS IT APPEARS IN YOUR STORMPAY ACCOUNT OR PAYPAL ACCOUNT. Step # 4 Follow the program exactly as instructed. Make sure you copy every email address accurately. Try to keep this article or letter as close to the original as possible. Do not alter the names of the emails or the order in which they appear. This will cut into your profits. Remember this method is proven and tested. Don’t mess with a good thing! HONESTY REAPS ITS REWARDS! Step # 5 Now, post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups, message boards, etc. There are thousands of groups out there, but you only need 200. DO NOT SPAM!! Spamming is illegal and annoying to others. There is no limit to the income you can generate from this business. Your job is to let as many people see this letter as possible. They are your customers, and they will help you turn a profit. “No man or woman can become successful or rich without enriching the lives of others. Anyone who adds to prosperity must prosper in return.” DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS AND MESSAGE BOARDS Step #1 Use Internet Explorer or any Internet source to search for various newsgroups, on-line forums, message boards, bulletin boards, chat sites, discussions, discussion groups, online communities, etc. Use search phrases like: “millionare message board” or “money making message board” or “opportunity message board” or “money making discussions”, etc. You get the idea. Click on them one by one and follow the instructions to post a new message. From your amended article you typed, click “select all” then from edit click copy, go to the message board and in the text area, click edit and “paste” CONGRATULATIONS! You’ve done your first one. Jump to different newsgroups and repeat the process. The more you post in, the more income potential you have, but you must post to at least 200. You’re saying why 200? As in any business, you cannot expect 100% return on every post you make. Here is an example of how much you can make on a very low return: Say you only receive 5 replies (a very low example) out of the first 200 postings. you made $5.00 with your name as #6 on the post. Now each of them who just sent you the $5.00 make the MINIMUM 200 postings, each with your name as #5 on the list, and again only 5 people respond, that is another $25.00 to you, now those 25 each make their 200 MINIMUM posts with your name at the #4 position, and only 5 replies each, you make an additional $125.00! Now those 125 people turn around and post the MINIMUM 200 posts with your name in the #3 slot and only get 5 replies each, you will make $625.00. Now it really gets big! Those 625 post the MINIMUM 200 posts with your name in the #2 spot and they only receive 5 replies, you just made $3,125.00!!!! Those 3,125 people will all deliver this message to a MINIMUM 200 newsgroups with your name at #1 and if the still uncommon low number of only 5 reply with the minimum 200 postings, you will receive $15,625.00!! With an original investment of only $6.00, that is AMAZING!!!! When your name drops off the list, you can start all over again. There is no limit to the income potential!!! What are you waiting for? Get started! You are days away from FINANCIAL FREEDOM! Thank you for reading and GOOD LUCK! Isn’t it about time something good happened to you? All the best, Terri Note: Since the amount of money you can make from this proven program depends on how hard you are willing to work, results may vary.

Hi needhelp12 Does your son qualify for student loans ? Does he qualify for any scholarships ? Is it possible for your son to work for a semester , then go back the next semester after helping you pay off the bills ? How about working part time and going to school part time? Just some ideas . I personally don't know much about student loans , but my daughter has a great site that she has used ,and I will ask her to look it up. I will get back to you. soulight

I am a single parent trying to send my son to college. I would like to borrow some money to pay off my son's tution from last semester so he can go back to school. I have few bills that have got me in hole and if I could pay them off I can get back on my feet. If anyone there know of a company that help me people with poor credit please let me know. I have not all ways had bad credit . I got behind on my bills when I had to help my mother with her medical bills. Even if I can not find any help I will find a way to send my son back to school.

I think what you are doing on your web pages are great. With so many web sites out there that will take advantage of single mothers trying to improve their children lives, it is great to find one that is only out to help and inform. You helped me out more than you know just by your kindness and going out of your way to help others.
