| p.1 #7 · Why is the Yakim Peled thread locked? |
The original thread was open for quite some time so everyone could share their condolences.
Our site was never involved with donation transactions but in the case of Yakim, we tried our best to find a safe and secure solution. Unfortunately, after several attempts, I was unable to verify the validity of sending donations to Israel via Paypal.
My idea was to use his own verified Paypal address to make sure the money would reach his family. But, Paypal advised me that if we did this, the downfall would be the paperwork involved and there is no guarantee that his heirs would have access to the funds.
Someone had mentioned a different Paypal address but, it was one that had never been used by Yakim during his time on the site and Paypal could not verify it. I know everyone has good intentions and wants to help, but sending funds to an unverified Paypal account cannot be endorsed or advertised here on the site for our own protection.
For the reasons above, we decided not to proceed.
Although we don't endorse any charities, you could always seek out an established suicide prevention or other charitable organization (on your own), and make a donation in the name of Yakim Peled to honor his memory.
