Blogging: Help Firda’s Mother

July 31st, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

Firda from Wannabe GirlFirda from Wannabe girl was one of the blogs that inspired me to start my own – but now she needs YOUR support!

In the middle of the Blogathon (she was the only person I sponsored as well), her mother was taken ill and is currently in the Intensive Care Unit in their local hospital. However, due to Indonesia (where Firda lives) not having a national health service (like the UK’s own NHS: poor though it is), she has to find all the hospital bills herself – and at $300 a day (that’s £186) it’s quite expensive.

So, go and donate some money to her (via her friend’s PayPal account) – I’m sure it’ll be appreciated. I’ve done my little bit (practically clearing out all the contents of my PayPal account to her) – so why don’t you give a few dollars?

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".
