vrf Shawn Fessenden

Question asked by VRFuser on Jan 27, 2006
I was contacted privately by a few people who wished to donate via credit card or bank card.
Paypal normally won't let you sign up for an account without giving out your bank account info.
Many people are scared of this process (rightfully so given Paypal's history before they were bought by EBay).
So I sent Shawn a few tips and he was able to set something up with Paypal.

This will allow you to donate without signing up for an account.
All you need is a credit card.

Directions are at http://www.oswegosw.com/vrf_archive/DonateToShawn.htm

However, I'm going to add a few of my own for those of you without accounts.
Once you enter the donate to Shawn page, there is a link to "Make a Donation".
Click this.
One this page there is a button that says "If you do not currently have a PayPal account, click here"
This will take you to a shipping page.
Use the "Shipping is not required" button.
Then I think it will then let you enter credit card info and finish the payment.

I'm pretty sure that Paypal converts currency automagically for those of you out of country.

O.K. people step right up.
Based on his Paypal number, Shawn has only had TWO previous donations from verified Paypal members.
If you aren't a Paypal person, get that checkbook out.

I'm not the one you normally want rallying the troops, but when its one of our own, something has to be done.
If you can't get him work, please send him money now.

Thanks,

Fellow VRFers,

This is plea to HELP the BEST resource the VRF has had since David
Paslay and Greg Goebels. Our SHAWN Fessenden is in dire need of paying
EMPLOYMENT - he is close to being homeless.
     If you have job for him, know of a job, or can help in any way,
he is ready and willing to relocate (practically anywhere.) Please try
and help to keep this resource stable for the sake of the VRF - (for all
our sakes.)

I realize that this sort of commercial plea is frowned upon on the VRF
and could be considered a gross abuse of this forum, but I think an
exception should be made in this unusual case. (Please have mercy
Nicole. Let this message pass through.) To support this effort, I am
willing to sacrifice my 7+ years on the VRF and be kicked off the VRF
for violating the rules (if not the spirit) of the VRF. Shawn has no
responsibility in this egregious plea and will probably be mortified by
my temerity. I refer you to his blog (please read) and e-mail. Please
contact him directly and don't abuse the VRF as I have.
