What we're about
Are you putting off a medical procedure because you don't have someone to take you and pick you up to the hospital? Do you need help with gardening, or small household chores? Do you need someone to house sit, or care for your pets while you are on vacation? Do you need a ride to the doctor, or a lift to the grocery store? This meetup is an effort to create a community where we (mostly single or without available help nearby) help each other. I am hoping most services are done for free, or a nominal fee. If someone helps you, you can pay it forward by helping someone else, or maybe returning the favor to the one who helped you. If you have an errand business or another service and want to advertise here on the message board, feel free to do so. Big business or contractors, please do not use our message board for advertisement unless you are doing it for little money/free. Of course geography plays a big part, so when you join please list where you live now. This group will be private, and only visible to members, and no one will be accepted without a picture.* Using any of the people offering to help is at your own risk, but they will be registered with this meetup. Please make sure to get contact information that is workable, and post who is helping you on the event page. I will have an ongoing "Help needed this week" event and it will be up to the members to sign up and list what they might need. Try to plan a few weeks ahead to give others a chance to see who needs help. If you find yourself stranded, you could even post here, maybe someone will see it. This is an experiment, but I think it might be a useful tool for all of us that live alone and often could use a helping hand. Your feedback will be appreciated.
*PLEASE DO NOT JOIN IF YOU CANNOT PUT UP A RECOGNIZABLE PICTURE OF YOURSELF. YOU WILL BE REMOVED AND BANNED.*
