here is the Info need to send donations

If it is a PayPal account, all that should be needed is the email address that is associated with the account. Then, anyone with a Paypal account can easily send money to the account directly from www.paypal.com.

Done, Those are gifts and we can all give them, so they are not taxable to him!!

I clicked on the link with his email address and nothing happened. Maybe it is supposed to be like that. I just copied it and went to paypal to send. Just thought I would mention it in case you need to fix it.

Done.
Thanks Charles for posting the information on how I could directly help out.
Makes me even happier that I have that PayPal account now!
I just wish I was able to do more.

i don’t see where anyone is begging
just a good friend asking about what can be done to help
and if you are implying about the father
should sell his tools
that would cut off all money for the whole family
as he is not a hobby crafter

maybe next week it will be uncle
or it might be you

pray someone cares then
