I have tattled to try to get a good link. If you go to livingsocial.com, the deal is offered below the main deal under "Nearby deals"

Living Social needs to utilize Paypal and/or Google Checkout.

@theoneill555: It wasn't a question, it was a statement. I see neither option.

Been there, done that, hopefully it'll be sent off to a good use.

@thepenrod he was agreeing with you, not saying that they do offer it.

Did it. I want to help save lives, even though I've probably wasted my own.

@jcmason: if that's what you want then your life is not wasted

Japan is a very wealth country and has not asked for any help. It has been reported that they are fully prepared for a natural disaster like this and there are mechanisms in place to make all repairs. The most serious damage is psychological, similar to post 911. Money cannot help in that respect. Haiti is in far more need of assistance. People are still dying there.

@bangchan: This money is going to the Red Cross, to help our workers help their workers. They need many more search and rescue teams than they have, plus many necessities like water, prepackaged food, etc. It's not like the Red Cross is collecting donations to write Japan one big check. And I highly doubt Japan would turn down help in such a crisis. All the people there are too overwhelmed - too devastated - to let pride stand in their way of trying to restore their country. I hope no one shares your view when you find yourself in a crisis.

@bangchan: TOTALLY! Hopefully the get Bin Laden for this one.

@maddie87: I didn't say Japan was turning down help. Few refuse gifts but the need is far greater in Haiti. Many others feel this way too. Here is an example:

@thepenrod: I meant - yes, they need to accept Paypal.

I would love to use my Paypal with them and was terrified the first time I used them as I hadn't heard about them before. But after doing research and finding out that Amazon sunk a boatload of cash into them, I decided they were OK (just as along as you don't use someone else's referral link, unless you know them).

@theoneill555: Sorry about that. It's amazing how much in our language can be read (taken) more than one way.

@thepenrod: I see it all the time on the AtC questions. I read Jumbo's answers one way and someone else, reads it a totally different way.

In for one. They delivered with the Amazon deal, and I'm glad my $5 gets to go a little further. The Red Cross does a good job of flinging money and people at problems locally and worldwide.
