That'll never happen in Jonesboro. Most here are too busy getting drunk and drugged up, lying cheating, stealing from others, and generally stalking and harassing others to get serious about putting other people first. I think some of the churches try to make a difference, but it's their seedy members I see doing the most harm.

No there are quite a few people in this town who volunteer their time to help others. we have a fee based clinic here and we have several doctors, dentist mental health professional that take time out of their business to help those who are unable to help them selves. I do taxes for the elderly and people who make less than $12,000.00 a year free of charge.

Actually there are alot who donate time or money. I have seen first hand that 90 percent of the ones who give are financially challenged. The individuals that are well to do, or business owners that are in the same boat, do not hardly give. Also, the poorer they are, the more they give. Its very pathetic and sad.

LOL.... Whoever & Wherever she is from did the best they could to type this letter of testimony in English. However, they were unble to translate the sentences in proper speaking form which indicates they are from another country.
Sounds like a Scam to me and one of those to good to be true deals. Click, the light bulb on the inside of my common sense brain tells me to Stay away from this mess!!!
