Hi folks, you all heard about our fellow Queenzoner LiveAidQueen who lost everything when her home was hit by the hurricane Katrina. In a disaster like this we should stick together and therefore I ask all of you who can afford it to make a small donation to help Kayla to get over the worst.

Melissa (lisser) has kindly provided for a US paypal account. Please paypal your contribution to

m.raper@insightbb.com

If you don't have paypal and want to help anyway, please send an email to Melissa if you are in the USA and to me (YourValentine @ Queenzone.com) if you are somewhere else. Melissa will post her email address herself. As a US resident she will send Kayla a money order or personal cheque.

If you have any questions or suggestions how we can make this better, please post here. Thank you.

The email address Barb has provided in this post is where you can email me for my address if you need to mail a check or money order for Kayla as opposed to using paypal. You can make the check or money order out to me or Kayla, although I do not know Kayla's last name, I am fairly certain that Barb does. Kayla is a minor so we will probably be asking that the checks or money orders be made out to her c/o her mother's name, which I think is Brittany right Barb? Either way, anything is much appreciated for Kayla and her family. Many of you have my ICQ#, my work email, and my MSN address you can use as well to contact me as well. Feel free to post any questions or comments to myself or Barb in this post.

Western Union, I suppose is a possibility. I'm not too familiar with how it works as I've never used it, but I do know that Western Union is widely used in the States. I'll research this for you Alex and Marial.

I know now is not a good time to ask for financial assistance with the holidays coming up, gas prices increasing, etc. However, a little goes a long way. If we can all pull together some spare cash, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how it will add up given the number of Zoners that care so much about Kayla.

Thanks everyone!!!

Barb and I have not decided on a time limit but of course the sooner the better to get the money to Kayla and her family. However, we understand that you can't donate if the money isn't there today but will be there next week. I'd like to get the money to her family within the next two weeks....how does that sound to you all?

Any suggestions are welcome.

As Marialvy said we don't have PayPal here either so guide us how to help.


How do you-all pay for things on Ebay? I assume you have at some point, and if so, perhaps that method might work here? Just an idea.

Why not use moneybookers? I'd love to help but fairly enough I don't trust paypal one single bit.

I'd help, but I don't use paypal. Can I send a check or cash to you Lisser and you can cash it (if I send a check) or whatever and send it to Kayla?

Surprisingly enough a paypal-alternative.
The main difference I've noticed is that a) It's not as widely accepted as a payment option b) It doesn't steal money from me...

Th problem is that most people use paypal. Let's hope they do not rob us.

We will raffle a couple of (bootleg) DVDs and one Original Live At Wembley DVD from my collection among the zoners who help.

Barb, would it be an idea to wait after the Dutch convention? Maybe we could do something over there to collect a bit more money??

Bring a big jar or something and just collect? Dunno, just a thought. I'm sure Anja will be happy to announce something on the day.

Western Union sucks, the fees are terrible.

Cash is the only 100% working way of payment :) Plus PayPal and money orders are available in some countries. At least one of these three options will work everywhere :)

I'm discussing with Barbara some auction of bootlegs - fuck the copyrights in this case.

It is definitely not safe to send cash from most Latin American countries. The post offices can be quite corrupt, am I right Marial?

I do not suggest sending cash hidden in an envelope either. There are just too many things that could happen. The odds are against it but with cash, if it's gone it's gone. If you mail a money order or check, then it can be cancelled or tracked. However if sending cash hidden in an envelope is your only means of helping, then do so at your own risk. It is a risk.

Anyone wanting to mail a money order or personal check in the mail to me needs to email me for an address.

Thanks everyone.
