Last year 1500 copies of the CD were delivered to Children's Hospitals in 8 cities in the U.S. that were thrilled to have the recordings to distribute to their patients, including San Diego, Orange County, Milwaukee, New York, Miami, New Orleans, Houston and Albuquerque for the children spending their holidays in the hospital, and their siblings.

Now all you have to do is check all the hospitals in those areas to see who got those CDs and report back to us.
You want us to wipe your ass too?


Wow, what a lovely charity! When asked for names and addresses who received Jeff Gelder Holiday Magic CDs, you give a link to a marketing bullshit 'blog'.

The NAMES and ADDRESSES of the hospitals are what is required.

Not a link to a marketing BLOG.

Telling me about a hospital in "Milwaukee", or any city, is no information, as you well know.

BTW, go wipe your own ass.

Just stop bitching and get off your lazy ass and get the information yourself. Otherwise, fuck off if you don't like this thread and expect everything to be handed to you.
No matter what anybody says to prove the validity of this charity, you're the type who won't give anyway.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 829784


You are obviously the ALL TIME WORST SHILL any charity ever had, anywhere.

No, I'm not going to "fuck off", as you say. And I am not going to call every hospital in the city names noted. Not good enough. The onus isn't on ME. It's on YOU because YOU are asking for peoples' hard earned MONEY.

I asked for simple information. The names and addresses of 10 hospitals who ever received Jeff Gelder Holiday Magic CDs.

Shouldn't be all that hard to provide, if it's on the up and up.

Which obviously, it is not.

Seriously this screams scam... Anyone thinking of doing this just donate to a local shelter or salvation army. Same intent. NEVER trust ANYONE on the internet.

I think it'd be better to donate nothing, and let the kids die. Much saner all round. The spammer doesn't get to rip you 'tards off, and the whiney little kids don't get to experience the fairly shitty life available to them.
Problem solved. Next?

at $ 3 per cd, where does the money go to? it seems seriously expensive, for mass-production and packaging...

I donate a lot of money time and things for homeless the needey and local people who have lost their jobs.

I have a CHARITY that is Fla Non-Profit Corporation... and FILED with the STATE OF FLORIDA and I have FED ID NUMBRS... not just my personal name.

ACT LOCALLY... give $3.00 to one of the charity boxes in your community.

Help Feed the homeless...

Personally I like to help out in our local community... that is where I live.. and is personal to my being... other places... are great if you are so wealthy you just need to get rid of money... but truly.. if know someone in your commnity put some money in an envelope and put in their mail box... help locally .... your family friends and neighborhood.

If they are a BIG HOSPTIAL CHARITY... believe me they have ACCESS to your IRS Money vis the many Obaman Programs

This looks like a SCAM.. why INDIVIDUAL NAMES... where is the NAME of the CHARITY...

ALL LARGE CITIES have Children's Hospitals.

Also follow the money the CHECKS are paid to... This does not NAME any CHARITY but a BUSINESS NAME....

this does seem to have some warning flags

is it deductible if there is no charity organization stated?

a real charity blabs all about their recipients. photos, PR, normally a hospital admin recieving the cd's .

which hospitals? names, locations?

$3 per cd , when all the labor is donated?

should the IRS be looking at mr. gelder's activities?

Re: PLEASE! PLEASE! Can you help? Tis for sick Kiddies ...
Last year 1500 copies of the CD were delivered to Children's Hospitals in 8 cities in the U.S.

Do the maths. Last year each CD cost $2 therefore
that's three thousand CDs.

If for example 100 people donate $30 each to the
cause thats already $3000 in the kitty
where each CD costs $3 this year thats 1000 CDs
that can be distributed.

Supposing this year they are aiming to double the
number of CDs distributed and the target is
therefore three thousand CD's x $3 = $9000.

For any charity but note this is a nation wide one
it would be relatively easy to collect 9 or 10,000
dollars in donations to make the 3,000 CDs.

Something doent add up about this.

Are all donations recorded and receipted?

My guess is probably not for the small change
but probably for larger donations i.e. $20 and above.

Ok..

I am almost sorry I posted this now. I guess, I was hoping people could be a little more human at this time of the year.. but I guess they are, and I should not have expected differently.

I did it because I genuinely believe in helping the kids, and I thought this was a good cause.

I apologize to all of you who think that I am running a scam, or trying to aid perpetration of one. It is not now, nor ever has been my intent.

Mods if you want to unpin this and let it die, then by all means please do so.

I will not post to this thread again, unless a question is directly aimed in my direction, and not in response to a troll, who probably would not donate to any charity anyway.

And yes, I did get permission to post this appeal.

People are not 'trolls' if they ask you a simple question as to the names and addresses of the hospitals to verify if they actually did receive those CDs. The fact that you call them trolls and your partner in crime tells us to "fuck off" is all that I ever need to know about you.

no one accused you of running a scam or assisting one!!!!!

people just asked for details, which they are entitled to from any charity!!!!

"tis for the kiddies" and "imagine the smile on their faces" is long on emotion and short on detail.

yes, i did some google research and all i can find is emotional PR and very, very little detail from a charity that has supposedly been running for 5 or 6 years.

keep up the good work .....

and no we are not trolls for asking questions and neither are you for soliciting for a good cause. we just asked for the details behind this wonderful guys' activities.

Re: PLEASE! PLEASE! Can you help? Tis for sick Kiddies ...
This post soliciting money posted is outrageous. This is ridiculous.

It's one thing if the owner of GLP asked for money to help fund this site. That I wouldn't have a problem with and would probably help out with.

But for someone else to come on this site and beg for some charity they work for? Pisses me off. This time of year, we all get deluged with requests to make donations at work, from friends, from the Salvation Army bell ringers, other sites, etc. Why can't GLP be a solicitations-free site? If you're going to allow this charity to be advertised on your site, what's next?!

You should be sorry.

As for you expecting us to be "a little more human", how can you just make blanket assumptions and generalizations like that and think we're not charitable in real life?!

That is completely unfair.

I try and give as much as I can afford to charities I believe in. And I also give money to homeless people.

But I can only do so much. Do you have any idea how many times I've been asked for money for charities just in the last week alone? Then to come on GLP, which is normally refreshingly free of solicitations, and find this request and your absurd comment makes me very irate.

Re: PLEASE! PLEASE! Can you help? Tis for sick Kiddies ...
I've become extremely practical, some would say cynical.

I pass the Salvation Army ringers with a holiday greeting and a compliment to them for their service. What I leave unspoken is my observation that while these good folks are standing in the cold ringing the bell, most of the temporarily local guys living at the Sal are sitting in a warm bar sucking down the suds with the money they begged off the shoppers earlier today.

Or down by the railroad track freezing their buns off and smoking crack.

When I see them standing out there and doing their part to benefit them and their fellows then I'll consider donating again.

That will never happen because the vast majority of them would wait til the bucket was full and skip town.

I spent my career life working in the people-helping professions and know what I'm talking about.

So, good-hearted people everywhere, please be educated about what you are donating your time to. You may be unwittingly helping someone other than the needy prosper.
