  1. i totally understand your reaction of wanting to help everyone Crystilyn. However, Nana, I really don’t see this as causing people to start “fen singing off one another”, but rather giving bother donors an opportunity to see who they’re helping AND giving the person receiving the aid a chance to have a voice and face in the midst of a healthcare process that make you feel all alone and lost when you’re out of options.

    I speak from personal experience because not to long ago both myself and my daughter dealt with very serious, very long term medical conditions and I won’t bore you with the details but the process of getting help literally bankrupted our family. And we had health insurance for my daughter. A site like this could have made a world of difference for us, both from whatever aid we might have gotten-no matter how little-but even more-MUCH more-the feeling that someone was reaching out who cared in the midst of all consuming illness.

    In addition, I had a good friend who later was on another site when she needed heart surgery, called YouCaring.com, where people post their stories and people can donate directly and 100% of the money goes directly to the person needing help. Donors were able to be anonymous or put their name and a supportive message. This site saved her life and it was wonderful because her friends and family found out about it and donated and passed it on to people they knew who donated and it became a beautiful web of people who knew and loved her, or were simply strangers who saw her story on the site and were touched by it and said so. It gave her emotional and financial support she desperately needed.

    While this site and the process of choosing someone might make people uncomfortable, I would urge you to see this as a blessing and to know that it truly will affect the persons life. Try to just find someone you connect with and go with them, don’t think too hard about it or you WILL probably get overwhelmed completely by it all, and know that you are making a difference. These people are going through terrible times in their lives and the least we can do is deal with the different feelings this site might bring up in us and if you really are against the site then maybe passing it on to someone else who would like to use it to give to someone I agree would be a great alternative!

  2. The Watsi card doesn’t make me uncomfortable. Reading on their website, the hospital already gives them care if it is needed before the funds are received so it’s not like people are waiting to be taken care of in a life threatening situation. I use Kiva and they often give the money to the people before it is posted online and then the lender gets the money back from Kiva to reimburse themselves so they can make another loan to someone else.

    • I was thinking that it sounded like Kiva as well (which, btw, is another great organization to support if you’re looking to throw some money a charity’s way – a small amount of money can make a *huge* difference in someone’s life!)

  3. The Watsi card is a great. Might it make some people uncomfortable? It seems it might???…..but maybe this will bring awareness to more people of issues outside the U.S. These are real people with lives and families just like us who are dealing with tough situations and don’t have the same options as some of us do for medical help…..great job GlobeIn!!!

    • I agree. As a registered nurse and doctoral student, I’ve studied other health care delivery systems in other countries and I can honestly say that although the US healthcare system is flawed, we are very fortunate to live in the USA with access to healthcare. I love that they included this giftcard and I’m not going for the cutest child or the saddest story, I will use my clinical knowledge to make a decision. Just pick someone and be happy that you’re lucky to have access to healthcare. I hadn’t heard of this charity, but the fact that it’s secular and transparent, I plan on adding this to my monthly list of charitable donations. Another great box from my favorite sub box!

  4. I’ve been giving my kids (now 32, 27 and 24) a “charity” gift every Hannukah for as long as I can remember, so this fits right in. We’ve done World Wildlife Federation, Kiva, tree planting in Israel and Oxfam just to name a few. I can definitely see giving this card to one of my kids, or even buying 2 more and giving it to all 3 this year and letting them figure out who to donate to — or letting them give to the universal fund if they so desire.

  5. i hope the gift card isn’t in the benefit basket, i couldn’t chose for sure. maybe i could put mine up for swap for someone braver than i? i do like seeing the faces of those i’m helping when i support a company or donate money, but this is a little intense.

  6. I looked at the Watsi website, and my initial reaction was the same as yours, nana. But I thought about it some more, and I am very glad that there is a website like this. For me, it makes the giving more personal – I know where and to who my money is going. I didn’t consider it a competition – it just showed me who needs help and how much. It also put things in perspective. I spent a lot of money on subscription boxes the last two months – enough to provide elbow surgery for a young boy.

    I don’t know where my $5 is going to yet. Perhaps it would be the cutest kid. Or it might be the ugliest. Or maybe the oldest adult. Or maybe the oldest, ugliest adult. But I do know that I will be donating to this website on a regular basis.

  7. I had not heard of Watsi before but OMFG! It almost made me gag. There are some serious, serious ethical issues with that model. How are donors supposed to choose? Who is the cutest kid? Whose story can tear your heart apart the most?

    I’m all for helping sick kids, but fending them off against each other is beyond unsavory.

    • I agree. How can you choose? I want to help them all.
