    Be careful that the amount of money she receives does not disqualify her from receiving social services.  The rules are Byzantine & differ from agency fo agency.   Although at this point having some money is likely a risk worth taking.

      There was some $200 in her PayPal account, with a couple of other small donations coming in.

      This is indeed indentured servitude. The only reason marabout is in her present position is a lack of jobs, and that is a deliberate, long-term economic ploy to devalue American labor. One of the desired results is that the American work force can now be purchased pretty much on the cheap, we have been so downtrodden.

      I know in my heart of hearts that marabout would a million times over rather be working than dealing with social services, as would most reasonable people. But we are presented with unreasonable times, so we have to find new solutions to existing situations.

      That is what we are doing here. We have created a new means to help each other. Most of the time that way is by sharing information. Sometimes other ways of sharing are called for. When we act as a community, either politically or socially, we can accomplish some good things.
