Smile Can you help this Christmas?

Ok boys and girls.

This is in connection with a recent thread I started which can be found here.

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=100100

Some of you may have read it, some may not.

It is about a girl in need. The above topic changed subject (as usual) several times. But one subject that kept coming up was people wanting to help this girl.

This morning I went to see her again and apparently several of us fellow e90post forum members have contacted her and some of you have even helped her out.

As some of you may already know. I have already given her £1000 to help her on her way but she still need to raise over £6000 more and with peoples help I want to do it for her.

Some of you may think I am crazy for giving £1000 to a girl I don't really know and even crazier for trying to get you guys to do the same. But the thing is, many of us on here have certain privileges that this girl doesn't and what may only be 'pocket change' to us, could change this girls life.

So I am asking you all in the spirit of christmas to do something different this year and help change a young girls life.

If you would like to help her, please email her at:

megan.foryou@yahoo.com

And offer to donate as much or as little as you can.

I know we can raise £6k easily guys if we all do our bit.

Please don't abuse the fact you have her email address. Please remember that this is a real girl who is vulnerable and just needs a little help. So please only email her to offer your help or your words of encouragement.

Lets use the power of this forum to make a difference to someones life.

Thank You.

Garage List
No I don't think that is prostitution, Yes I think this is a scam.

Why is she taking courses if she can't even afford rent without wh0ring out? Why doesn't she get a full time job instead of a part time one at a cafe, servers make a lot of money (comparatively). Just doesn't add up.

Maybe because she's spent the last 2 years of her life working on these course and has dedicated a lot of money into them.

Maybe the qualifications at the end of it are the only thing keeping her going and the only thing that will help her out of this mess. Who knows.

Good. So there is at least one person who took the time to email her and find out she is actually a real person. Good for you!

I've said HI too. Seems like a nice enough girl. If this whole story is true, I feel so bad for her. Too bad she is in so much debt. That's a whole lot of debt to be in for that age and getting deeper in debt as time goes by. Anybody here give anything besides madman yet?

Send a message via AIM to IrateSpeed6
Tell her she has to do a photoshoot with e90post.com written on her jugs before any of us will help.

Dude, this only proves the OP. If you get an opportunity to write her, you will have a perfect explanation of those photos. In addition, that was her old email and she doesn't use it due to storage limitations.
