hello, i'm a mother of 3 sons and a 3* cmas diver. My graetest pleasure is to train en dive with handicapt people, there for i became a handicapt buddy.
Bud as it seems now, i can't do this anymore, at least not for a while cause of financial problems.
I find it very hard because there are some people depending on us, because there are not so many divers who wants to spend there time with this people. Why not?? I don't understand, i made some great dives with them!!
The reason why i have to stop is financially, i had some problems this year and i am afraid that i can't solve them alone. Therefore my little cry for help, is there somebody ouththere who can and will help me?
No gifts, a lone will do. Pleace help us out!!!!!!!!!!! Mail me!!!!!!!!!
1 post here and its to ask for a loan? Are you serious?

Ahhh 20 degree water and warming, little juvenile tropical fish all over the place... :inlove

Stop rubbing it in :(
One day I might take you up on that and show up on your doorstep! I've done it before :)

i'm sorry that you all replayed to me in that way. I'm just searching for a way out. And...............it's not very funny to laugh with handicapt people, who knows that one day you become one. Nobody asked for it and not everybody is born that way. Would you not like to continue with diving if so??????????
Asking for money on the net for your first post on a forum is not appropriate if you're for real.
I sent all money to South East Asia yesterday anyway.

Perhaps your plea is for real perhaps not. I am not the one to judge on that, but internet scamsters and other mean people have long time ago made such requests as yours sound bad. You should try to work something out the official "through-the-paper-war" style where ever you are. Internet hardly is the way..

Thank God I have a good friend who helped us out.
So the problem is solved!!!!
Happy Newyear!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Pekka is right, if you are serious about helping handicapped people with diving, why don't you start an association of volunteer divers who would donate time and parhaps money to such a project. But register it and make it official. I'm sure that you would find a lot of support in the diving community in the Benelux and neighboring countries. It would also be an added incentive for many people to go diving, combining one of their favorite activities along with helping people.

With time you might even turn it into a worldwide organization.

Happy New Year!
