Donating to this forum


slangpdx

Question

Don't know where else to post this so am picking this forum at random.  I keep getting email from donotreply asking to donate because hadit is going broke.  Then the only option for donating is Paypal.  I do not use that because I have been hacked twice on it, once when I didn't even have an account but someone created an account in my name and then put my stolen credit card number on it.  Fortunately both times it was discovered by the company but they still weren't able to safeguard their computers to begin with. 

I suppose there is a reason hadit will not allow donation by credit card but I will not be donating by Paypal.  Can this site not set up a gofundme funded by credit card or some equivalent?  It seems if it really needs money it will look at other options, possibly also a nonprofit grant, or trying to recruit a deep pocket donor.  There may be many state or federal grants possible.  Just suggesting. 
 

I am 70% SC for 11 years, have not applied for 100% because don't trust the system.

Unless the forum is incorporated as a non-profit any proceeds received through a go fund me would be considered as income for the recipient, and thus, taxable.

You can donate via credit card.  I personally do not have a paypal account and will never get one again.  I previously had one and they screwed me over....it was a small amount but I digress.   Just select the option and when you get the payment screen you will have the option to select a credit card.  I just did it.

Tx for responses.  On another note, I see there are law firms that have placed ads here recruiting to help veterans .  Since the forum is knowledgeable about vet issues, it is of course vouching for the credibility and competence of these outfits.  Correct?

Tbird is not responsible for the opinions of hadit members.  We offer our own opinions, which includes law firms.  I have recommended some law firms..not out of any monetary gain, but because I have either used these law firms, or know of their reputations.  

If individuals have had a negative experience with a law firm, they may also make that opinion.  Some Vets on hadit "wont disclose the name" of their law firm for their own reasons.  

I monitor this board, and I have found the advice given here superb.  If I dispute advice given here, Im free to post my dispute.  

And, on occassion, I have disputed what Vets post here, and have rendered an opinion.  

But they are OPINIONS, and opinions vary widely.  I like hadit because its what I call "peer reviewed", again, if you dispute what is posted you can call the person out on it and give your reasons why you dispute their opinion.  

This is the reason I like hadit..we can voice our opinions and we can read the pro and con for both sides and  decide for ourself.  However, neither hadit, nor tbird, nor myself are accountable (legally) for our lay opinions.  You can chose whether to accept advice given here or not.  By my experience has been you are wise to accept the advice given here, including that in regard to law firms.  I did, and Im glad I did.  Now, I can/do give back, with knowledge I have acquired on this site.  I offer advice to others, but always do your own checking.  What worked for me, may not always work for you under different circumstances.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
