About Please Help Me
Please Help Me is an organization set up by charitable donors and sponsors who at some point in
time in their lives screamed out 'please help me'. They have been given a second chance to get back on their feet
and now they wish to give back to the community and help those who are where they were.
Since our community help model is based on the experiences of our charitable donors, we have a
guideline which are laid out in our FAQ section and our Who We Help section. There are many types of people who
need help but not everyone who needs help is desperate enough to do whatever it takes within reasons, of course. We
are not talking about illegal activities or unethical activities. We are simply talking about those minimum wage
jobs and counting pennies way of spending that many less desperate people avoid.
We have witnessed everyday that many people ask for help, put an ad out for help claiming to be
desperate. But when someone lend a hand and offer something used, something that pays a small amount of money or
something that seems like hard work, these charitable good hearted helpers get turned down by those who then turn
around to ask other people for help. What we have found is that, people do not want just any old help - they want
easy help, they want someone to just hand them some money and be done with it.
In order to weed out those people who wouldn't appreciate the
small amount of help others can afford them, we have set up a guideline to only help people by
helping them help themselves. We are not helping those people who claim that they are desperate but
yet when small help is offered to them, they decided that they need a different item. We believe
that people should be honest in what they ask for and how they portray their situation. If they
need help paying for food, then they should take any eatable food.
If they need a new ipod, that's ok too. But, they need to be honest upfront about it. We help
anyone who helps themselves. So if you need help so you can afford that luxury item in your life, and you are
willing to work hard for it, we will help you.
Our Motto: Be nice, work hard, and be honest
