IMPORTANT INFORMATION IF YOU SEE YOUR POSTING NUMBER IS NOT BEING REQUESTED. PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS!!!
We know that it can be frustrating when you keep checking the Pending Help page and NOT seeing your posting number. We want you to read over this page so you can understand a few things.
It is IMPORTANT to understand that 2Hands.org is NOT a guarantee of help. Far more people post than receive help. That is just the way it is. We wish all who posted received help, but there is no possible way for that to happen. If it were, we would be the most visited website in the world.
We do have a couple things which may help you though.
>>>POST YOUR NEED EVERY 48 HOURS!!!!!!!! 2Hands.org is VERY busy during Oct, Nov and Dec and if you post you can rest assured that your posting will have moved quite a ways down the list after 48 hours. So post again. To post again, click the Ask For Help or Post A Need button from any page of 2Hands.org and acquire a new posting number, register and post a newly worded need. And of course, please be sure to follow the steps to Activate Your Angels each time as this is the heartbeat that keeps 2Hands a successful resource for people in need.
>>>By posting every 48 hours and following the steps to Activate Your Angels, you keep your posting near the top of the postings and you keep lots of visitors returning.
>>>Make sure your posting is heartfelt!!! We see SO many people who write postings like this....
'I need presents for my kids. A Wii game system, a new bike for my daughter and new clothes for my youngest son.'
That's it. Seriously.
What do you think the chances of this type of posting receiving help are? VERY slim.
>>>So take the time to write from the heart. Be polite. Tell your story WITHOUT giving any personal information, but people like to see you are being honest and emotional in your words. It is 100% OK to provide a detailed list as this gives people a clear understanding of what is needed and even gives people the opportunity to help you in partial ways, but just be polite and even though you may have some high priced items you are asking for, being polite about it is KEY!!!
>>>And finally, you may have written a perfect posting, posted every 48 hours, Activated the Angels every time and nothing. This is a reality and we wish it were different. There are just people who will not receive help. We have NO control over who is chosen at all.
>>>Just keep in mind that 2Hands.org is one resource of many and after you post your need on 2Hands.org, continue your search for help using local resources or searching online for national resources as well.
