    Hi BHW. A friend named Stephanie Skaggs died in a car accident and we are raising money to pay for the service. She was 28 and on her way to work when she was ejected from her vehicle upon impact. This has been a horribly shocking event to us, and the primary concern is paying for the service, with concern for the child as well. Now I know you guys are used to scams. This is not a request to fill up a paypal account, but to call the funeral home directly if you can help. This is Kutis Funeral Home in St. Louis, MO 314-772-3000. This is the story and any help is appreciated. http://www.fox2now.com/news/ktvi-i-55-young-mother-crash-stephanie-skaggs-071311,0,7872547.story I have given a little to the forum but if you would like to give back, and help a good woman and her daughter, please call the above number.

    No, help as many as you can. Giving $20 for a flock of chickens for families in Africa/Asia (most of my giving goes to Asia) is a MUCH better use of my resources than building a vanity stone for an American.

    I guess if you feel inclined to help this 'one family' then do it, there are always opportunities to contribute, everyone is different and each have different motivations.

    I think its good that the OP brought it to the attention to this community, perhaps some people will feel moved to help, other wont, thats life.

    No you are not. You are a citizen. A renter. Owners don't put down their own like that. Our country is unique. You can be born a citizen, but you make yourself an American. It is why we still welcome immigrants, because one hard working Latino who tries and raises good kids is worth more than 100 Congresscritters put together. He is American from the minute he crosses while others live their whole lives and never earn the distinction.

    When did I "put down my own?" I don't know this woman. I put down the burial traditions that people in this country feel enslaved to. And who are you to decide who is and isn't American?

    Not every American thinks the same way. I know that offends some people but you came here asking for money and insulted those who didn't give. Maybe we just don't believe in the cause.

    Good luck with MAKING the world thank us for taking their natural resources.

    My very point. Americans don't have to know each other to care about each other. Typical hipster.

    Very well said.

    @ OP I know you don't want to post a PP button to avoid looking like a fraud but it will lower the barrier a bit and make it easier for folks to make small donations if they are inclined. Just a suggestion.

    Let's stay on topic, this is not an appropriate thread to start a flame war in. Thanks.
